James Murray (I) (1901–1936)


Sometimes the early tragic death of a Hollywood actor can lead to immortality, as in the cases of icons James Dean and Marilyn Monroe--and, to a somewhat lesser extent, little Bobby Driscoll, who died a Skid Row bum in the streets, a victim of drug addiction.

Trivia:

Murray's classic movie The Crowd (1928) was so unrelentingly sad and bitter that MGM executives tried to tack on an upbeat Hollywood ending.
