6' (1.83 m)
Did You Know?
I have never gone into a picture without first studying my characterization from all angles. I make a study of the fellow's life and try to learn everything about him, including the conditions under which he came into this world, his parentage, his environment, his social status, and the things in which he is interested. Then I attempt to get his mental attitude as much as possible.
Was in a relationship with Jean Harlow
for two years before her death and paid for her funeral, costing $30,000. For many years Powell made sure fresh flowers were always present at her grave.
