Ken Murray’s Hollywood
Performer Ken Murray first arrived in Hollywood in 1927 a relative unknown from his then hometown of Kingston, New York. Instead of sending postcards of Hollywood back to his family, he instead purchased a 16mm camera, filmed Hollywood stars – many he didn’t even know at the time – and sent the resulting film back to his family. This movie is a compilation of much of that footage taken over thirty-five years, plus some additional professional footage provided by his now Hollywood friends. The footage takes place on the street, on movie sets, and wherever Hollywood stars play and/or relax, including their homes. As a bonus we’ve included a rare Ken Murray TV show.
Hollywood Without Make-up – 1963, Hollywood-My Home Town – 1965, Ken Murray Variety Hour – 1950.
