"PROBABLY THE WORST THING I EVER DID"

"I hate to go out to dinner, period! I had a million excuses.
The food's no good. The food's good, but over-priced. The
food's o.k., but the place is too far. The food and music are
lousy. The service is horrible. Last week I ran out of excuses."

QUALITY AND CONSISTENCY IS OUR PRIORITY!

on their toes to compete with
all the new comics around,
sometimes as many as 12 on
one bill."
Murray left the world of
stand-up comedy in 1950
when he starred in his first
coast-to-coast radio and TV
show called "Song for Sale!'
This began 14 uninterrupted
years on TV where he created,
produced, starred in and
packaged a series of audience-
participation programs such
as "Dollar A Second,"
"Treasure Hunt" and
"Charge Account!"
Along the way, he earned
the nickname of "King of
Anecdotes!' And his storytell-
ing abilities have made him a
constant guest on leading talk
shows. Never content to
stagnate, he also studied ac-
ting and has appeared in
numerous movie and TV
films.
Two years ago, Murray was
interviewed by ABC for part of
a documntary on D-Day, 1944.
The memories of that event
will stay with him forever.
"As a member of the USO,
we were the first to land on
Omaha Beach," Murray
remembers. The "we" in this
case included a girl singer, a
magician, a dance team and
an accordianist. "We were put
on boats and off to France we
went!' -
The journey„ however, was
anything but relaxing. "There
were bumper-to-bumper boats
heading across the English
channel and mines
everywhere. Boats exploded
just ahead of us?'
The landing was anything
but glamorous as well. "We
thought we'd be the vanguard;
that they'd have a ticker tape
parade waiting for us. Instead,
they didn't even know we were
coming. We landed alone in
the pouring rain, mud up to
our ankles, not knowing
where to go or what to do. I
remember the cold, the gas
masks, the fox holes, the bom-
bing every night!'
Still, he says, he wouldn't
change a thing. "Imagine
witnessing this hunk. of
history," he sighs. "It was
weird, exciting, exhilerating.
Almost awe-inspiring. All of a
sudden, there I was. And all
because I knew a few jokes!"
After such a diverse 50
years in show business, does
Murray think much about the
future?
"Not much," he answers
quickly. "I never dreamt of
`stardom: I never dreamt of
living in a big house, driving
a big car, having people ask
me for my autograph. It's fun-
ny, but the kinds of things
that bothered me early in my
career still do today. I used to
worry about where I was go-

ing to open next Tuesday. Fif-
ty years later, I find myself
still worrying about the same
thing. I guess people don't ever
really change!'
