Maurice Murphy (1913-1978)

  1. Clark Williams, Tailspin Tommy in the Great Air Mystery, 1935.    Change of Tommy Tompkins in the second serial.  Chipper or not, Williams was less boyish than  Murphy but then Tommy was supposed to have matured  here… more so, apparently, than young Murphy. Williams had the shorter career, seven roles in 15 years to Murphy’s 56  in 22. And Noah Beery Jr stole the show from both of them.
  2. Richard Cromwell, Jezebel, 1937.  According to Warner’s  detailed Daily Production and Progress Reports: Murphy (best known as 1933’s Tailspin Tommy Tompkins) and Tim Holt tested for Ted Dillard (Henry Fonda’s brother) in Warner’s $1.25m reponse to MGM’s Gone With The Wind .  So know I know which Hollywood movie opened on March 26, 1938 - the day I was busy being born.
