May 5, 2014, marks the centennial of the birth of my favorite actor, Tyrone Power.
Please visit my 2011 birthday tribute to Power, which has been updated annually with links to additional reviews of Power's films.
My contribution to his Centennial Blogathon is a review of THIS ABOVE ALL (1942).
You can also check out an excerpt from my 2012 interview with Power's NIGHTMARE ALLEY (1947) costar Coleen Gray, in which she discusses what a fine man he was.
In honor of the day, here are just a few stills from some of my favorite Power films...
