Overlooked Cowboy Stars: Tom Keene


Ain't nobody watching old Tom much anymore, but he was hot stuff for RKO back in the early '30s, and generated some decent movie posters. I've seen a couple of his films, and while he was a less gifted thespian than say, Ken Maynard, he wasn't too bad. He was still starring in his own westerns into the '40s, after which he changed his stage name to Richard Powers and kept busy with guest roles on various TV Westerns. Sadly, he ended his career with The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet and Plan 9 from Outer Space.

He's best remembered nowadays as one of the stars of PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE. He also played the Tucson Kid in an unsuccessful tv pilot produceed and directed by Ed Wood.
