KEN MURRAY This document signed by the television and radio star states the membership dues for the Directors Guild of America Document signed: "Ken Murray". One page. 8½x11. February 18, 1965. Membership dues for the Directors Guild of America. Murray, who has hand-printed his home address in Beverly Hills, California, reports his 1964 earnings as a Directors Guild member as "None" and estimates his 1965 earnings as "$10,000". Ken Murray (1903-1988) was a vaudevillian, actor, and radio and television entertainer who hosted The Ken Murray Show, an hour-long variety show on Saturday nights on CBS (1950-1952). It was also broadcast on the radio nationally; at the time, televisions were still not present in the majority of households. Another show he hosted called Where Were You? aired locally in the Los Angeles, California area from 1954 to 1957. He performed 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. Paper clip impression and pencil note (unknown hand) at upper left corner. Office routing stamps at lower right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
