Audie Murphy (1924-1971) would become the most decorated United States soldier in World War II and a successful movie star. Having always dreamed of joining the military he changed his birthdate to join The United States Army when he was only seventeen. During the war Murphy was promoted several times and eventually took command of his own company. On January 26, 1945 his unit was part of the battle at Holtzwihr, in France. For his valor on the day he was awarded the Medal of Honor. His service during the war gained him thirty three U.S. medals, including every medal available at the time. In 1945 actor James Cagney invited Murphy to come work in Hollywood. In 1949 he got his first leading role in the film Bad Boy. In 1949 he released a ghostwritten Autobiography To Hell and Back which became a national bestseller. In the 1955 film version of the book he portrayed himself and To Hell and Back became Universal's biggest hit at the time. He spent twenty five years in Hollywood, making forty four feature films. He also appeared on television and became a successful country music songwriter. Throughout the 1950s, Jack Elam (1920-2003) cemented his reputation as one of the meanest-looking and most reliable "heavies" in the movies. Few of his screen roles gave him the opportunity to display his natural wit and sense of comic timing, but inklings of these skills were evident in his first regular TV series assignments: The Dakotas and Temple Houston, both 1963. In 1969, Elam was given his first all-out comedy role in Support Your Local Sheriff, after which he found his villainous assignments dwindling and his comic jobs increasing. Elam cracked up audiences in the 1980s with his roles in Cannonball Run and Cannonball Run II. Though well established as a comic actor, Elam would never completely abandon the western genre that had sustained him in the 1950s and 1960s; in 1993, a proud Elam was inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame. Dan Duryea (1907-1968), known for his bad-guy roles, was cast as the sniveling Leo Hubbard in 1939's The Little Foxes. This Broadway production was converted into a film in 1941, with many members of the original cast--including Duryea--making their Hollywood debuts. Duryea continued playing supporting roles in films until he scored in 1945's The Woman in the Window. Thereafter, he was given star billing, most often as a heavy. In 1968, shortly before his death from a recurring heart ailment, Duryea was cast as Eddie Jacks in 67 episodes of TV's Peyton Place. Toned. Corners rounded with various creases. Small stains on bottom margin. Miniscule silver marks on surface. Stains on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
