Guest Star POW 2/4 ~ Bruce Yarnell

Post by CowgirlAtHeart » Mon Feb 04, 2019 2:09 pm

Bruce Yarnell played Cousin Muley Jones in "The Saga of Muley Jones" and "Hound Dog." He was perfect for the role...he was so big he made Dan Blocker look ordinary-sized, and he had a terrific rolling voice for his songs!

Cap by Adamant

With his terrific singing voice, Bruce started out on Broadway (he was Sir Lionel in Camelot and Frank Butler in Annie Get Your Gun, among others). He then began singing opera. Although he acted in a few movies and TV shows, his stage acting and singing always came first! Tragically, Bruce was killed in a plane crash at the age of 37 on his way back from performing in La Boheme at the San Francisco Opera. His widow, Joan Patenaude-Yarnell, started a scholarship in his honor to help young baritones.
