Birthplace: Not Available
A long-nosed character comedian from Australia, in Hollywood from around 1924, John T. Murray was the husband of buxom comedian Vivian Oakland, with whom he appeared in scores of two-reel comedies, including Andy Clyde's Mr. Clyde Goes to Broadway (1940). Earlier, Murray had played the notorious Jack the Kisser, to whom poor Andy was handcuffed in Caught in the Act (1936), and fans of the Three Stooges may remember him as the professor in Violent Is the Word for Curly (1938). Equally busy in feature films, Murray played Talleyrand in Alexander Hamilton (1931), Pilate's servant in The Last Days of Pompeii (1935), the city editor in The Golden Arrow (1936), and various bit parts in MGM's venerable Andy Hardy series. Retired since the early '40s, Murray died at the Motion Picture Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, CA.
