90th BIRTHDAY TRIBUTE TO DON MURRAY, THE “UNSUNG HERO”
Free Event: Sneak Preview at the Little Roxie – One Screening Only at 6:30 PM
A revised version of Don Malcolm’s timely examination of the life and career of actor-activist Don Murray will have a special sneak preview on Tuesday evening, October 8 in the Little Roxie.
Don Murray, who turned 90 on July 31, had a fascinating career filled with great performances (BUS STOP; A HATFUL OF RAIN; THE HOODLUM PRIEST; ADVISE & CONSENT) but the film suggests that his legacy may lie elsewhere—in superb but little-seen works about race relations (THE OUTCASTS; SWEET LOVE, BITTER; CALL ME BY MY RIGHTFUL NAME) and in his pioneering humanitarian work. Murray’s extraordinary times and exemplary life are celebrated in UNSUNG HERO, a labor of love that reminds us that having a social conscience is a good thing.
UNSUNG HERO, as a sneak preview, is a free event. Midcentury Productions subscribers received an email blast on September 23rd, but there are still some seats available! If you are interested in attending, please email MCP at firstname.lastname@example.org, and you’ll be contacted about ticket availability.
Our tribute to Don Murray continues Thursday, October 10, with a special screening of Don Murray, Rod Steiger and Susannah York in the riotous cult film, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WANDA JUNE. → MORE INFO
