    Great interview, thanks. I met Murray during the post-synch dialog sessions on "THE DEVILS", a very nice sociable person.

      He sounds very jovial, the sort of person you'd like as an uncle. I didn't know that he'd trained as a dancer.

      £4 a week!!

          following this link I ended up on Youtube watching Murray Melvin describe the time that Stanley Kubrick made him do 57+ takes on a scene. ... which in turn led to a clip of Dave Prowse describing the time he joked with the director about his nickname "not being 'one-take Kubrick'".

              The photo of him in the hat looks more like Margaret Hamilton than Murry Melvin.
