DALLAS star Howard Keel has lost his battle with colon cancer. He was 85.

The Illinois-born actor launched to fame in 1950 as BETTY HUTTON's love interest in musical film ANNIE GET YOUR GUN.

Keel went on to play the romantic lead in Mgm classics Kiss Me Kate, SHOW BOAT, Calamity Jane and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

At 66, Keel landed the role of CLAYTON FARLOW in classic TV series Dallas - husband of Southfork matriarch MISS ELLIE.
