The Cinema Arts Centre commemorates the 50th Anniversary of legendary Hollywood superstar Marilyn Monroe’s death with a rare in-person appearance by Don Murray, Monroe’s Academy Award-nominated co-star in Bus Stop. Joshua Logan’s classic 1956 comedy is based on a play by Pulitzer Prize winner William Inge. The interview will be conducted by movie scholar Foster Hirsch.
Don Murray grew up in the shadow of the Cinema Arts Centre in Long Island, NY. During his career, he worked with such Golden Age Hollywood actors as Henry Fonda, Charles Laughton, Walter Pigeon, Hope Lange, Peter Lawford, Gene Tierney, and Burgess Meredith. His screen credits include A Hatful of Rain, Advise and Consent, and Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. His pre-film personal life was notable, since he was a conscientious objector during the Korean War. Murray’s appearance and interview is being filmed for inclusion in a new documentary in development about his career.
The Don Murray interview will precede a screening of Bus Stop. The event begins this Wednesday, November 14th at 7:30p. Tickets are available for members of the Center and the public. The Cinema Arts Center is located at 423 Park Avenue in Huntington, NY.
