  • Yale-educated actor Murvyn Vye was closely associated with the Theatre Guild in the 1940s, originating the role of Jigger Craigin in the Guild's 1945 staging of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel. Vye brought his froglike countenance to Hollywood in 1947. In his first film, Golden Earrings, he played the gypsy who warbled the title song. Vye went on to play a dour Merlin in the Bing Crosby version of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1949) before returning to Broadway. He was cast as the Kralahome in Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I, but left the production during tryouts when his songs were cut. Back in Hollywood, Vye continued essaying sinister film and TV roles throughout the 1950s. For reasons best known to himself, he went unbilled in the important part of Joan Collins' martini-imbibing husband in Leo McCarey's Rally Round the Flag, Boys (1959). In 1961, Vye was cast as the hero's general factotum in The Bob Cummings Show (not to be confused with Love That Bob), an assignment which lasted all of 13 weeks. Murvyn Vye's last film was the independent, Manhattan-based Andy (1965).
