It was also broadcast on the radio nationally; at the time, televisions were still not present in the majority of households. During World War II, he hosted another variety show, Ken Murray's Blackouts, in Los Angeles. This show featured risque humor, starlets, music and novelty acts; it ran for seven years and 3,844 appearances. Where Were You? was a less popular but unique and innovative show that aired locally in the Los Angeles, California area from 1954 to 1957. Murray went on to appear in various films, including The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), Follow Me, Boys! (1966), and Won Ton Ton: The Dog Who Saved Hollywood (1976). Perhaps his most important contribution to Hollywood, however, was his use of home movies with Hollywood celebrities.He sent footage of actors like Mary Pickford and Charlie Chaplin to his grandparents, and he later used this film to create films like Hollywood Without Make-Up (1963). They provide a first-hand account of Hollywood stars behind the scenes. He wrote a number of books over the decades, including an autobiography. Fine condition.
