Personal Quote:

I don't think of acting in terms of making a living. What I do has to be important to me. Every time I've taken a part for the wrong reason, money or prestige, it's been a disaster. I come off nervous and uptight. I just want to work with good people.

Trivia:

Became close friends with co-star Woody Allen on the set of Martin Ritt 's 1950s McCarthy era dramedy, The Front (1976). Allen would subsequently cast Murphy as his best friend, Yale, in Allen's own film, Manhattan (1979). See more »
