From Unsung Hero “Don Murray on Otis Young” (digital, 5 min.)
THE OUTCASTS “The Long Ride” (1969, 50 min.) 12:00pm [digital]
Don Murray, Otis Young, William Bassett, J. Pat O’Malley; directed by Robert Butler.
This episode of THE OUTCASTS has it all—a nasty villain, the usual tense interactions between Earl (Don Murray) and Jemal (Otis Young), and a pulsating story with a suitably ironic ending. After you see it, you’ll agree that THE OUTCASTS should be on DVD!
Don Murray in person interviewed by his sons Christopher and Michael!
CALL ME BY MY RIGHTFUL NAME (1972, 90 min.) 1:00pm [tbd]
Don Murray, Otis Young, Cathy Lee Crosby, Kent Smith, Edith Atwater; directed by Michael Shurtleff.
EXCEPTIONALLY RARE! Don Murray wanted to make this film in 1962 opposite Sidney Poitier, but events conspired to quash those hopes. Ten years later, the story of a friendship between a black man and a white that’s ruptured by a twist of fate involving a young woman (Cathy Lee Crosby) offers a slightly altered message, one that bears re-examination in 2014.

Part of our SPECIAL WEEKEND WITH DON MURRAY.
The Roxie is honored to host a special weekend with Don, still alive and well at 84, where the full range of his work will be displayed—including impossibly rare films that haven’t been seen for decades! Don Murray leapt from Broadway to movie stardom opposite Marilyn Monroe in BUS STOP (1956), but his aversion to the Hollywood star system caused his career to go into a completely different direction.
Don will join us on Saturday and Sunday for interviews (including several with his good friend, noted author/interviewer Foster Hirsch, also making his Roxie debut!) (Clips from the upcoming documentary about his life and career, DON MURRAY: UNSUNG HERO, will also be featured between screenings.)
For additional content, including biographical info about Don Murray and a sneak peak at the upcoming documentary UNSUNG HERO, be sure to visit the MID-CENTURY PRODUCTIONS website.
