This I Believe. Screenstar Dick Powell was born in the modest surroundings of Moundview, Arkansas. For the past twenty years, he has been exposed to, and eminently active in, the strange and garish world of motion pictures and radio. Some country boys have lost their way in these never, never lands. Some have been hoisted to dizzying heights of "success," in quotation marks, only to slip down the other side on the banana peel of mistaken values. Mr. Powell, more than incidentally a husband and father, has held fast to the basic beliefs he learned in that small town.
