George Lloyd Murphy Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

George Lloyd Murphy (July 4, 1902 – May 3, 1992) was an American dancer, actor, and politician. Murphy was a song-and-dance leading man in many big-budget Hollywood musicals from 1930 to 1952. He was the president of the Screen Actors Guild from 1944 to 1946, and was awarded an honorary Academy Award in 1951. Murphy served from 1965 to 1971 as U.S. Senator from California, the first notable U.S. actor to make the successful transition to elected official in California, predating Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

#Quote
1[on Nancy Carroll] Nancy herself wasn't too easy to work with. She was potentially one of the great stars, but she never quite made it -- maybe because she used stage tricks instead of her God-given talents ... She seemed to enjoy making others uncomfortable.
2Two members of my profession who are not urgently needed by my profession, Mr. Ronald Reagan and Mr. George Murphy, entered politics, and they've done extremely well. Since there has been no reciprocal tendency in the other direction, it suggests to me that our job is still more difficult than their new one. - Peter Ustinov
#Fact
1Ran for re-election in 1970, but was defeated by another "celebrity" candidate, Congressman John V. Tunney, son of former heavyweight boxing champion Gene Tunney. Tunney was also defeated for re-election, after serving only one term, by former San Francisco State University President S.I. Hayakawa.
2During the Broadway run of their hit show "Roberta", Murphy advised his co-star Bob Hope to check out a pretty singer at the Vogue Club, "Dolores Reade". Hope was immediately smitten and married her after a brief courtship. The marriage lasted until Hope's death at age 100 in 2003.
3Served as director of entertainment for U.S. presidential inaugurations in 1952, 1956, and 1960.
42 children, Dennis and Melissa
5Graduated from the Peddie School prior to going on to Yale.
6Was married twice. His first wife, Julie Henkel (known on stage as dancer Julie Johnson) teamed with him in Broadway musicals before she retired to raise a family. George was survived by his second wife.
7Upon his election to the Senate, singer/satirist Tom Lehrer good-naturedly saluted him in the song "George Murphy" as "at last we've got a senator who can really sing and dance." Lehrer went on to say that "we can't expect America to win against its foes without someone in the Senate who can really tap his toes." If Murphy had any thoughts on this joking tribute, they weren't recorded for posterity.
8(1944-1946) President of Screen Actors Guild (SAG).
9He was elected to the U.S. Senate in a special election held following the death of Senator Clair Engle (Democrat of California) from a malignant brain tumor in 1964. Murphy's opponent in this election was former JFK press secretary Pierre Salinger, who was trounced by a huge margin. During Murphy's term (1965-1971) he contracted throat cancer. He battled this successfully, but, sadly, because of the cancer it was necessary to remove his larynx, causing him to be unable to speak above a whisper for the remainder of his life.
10Awarded a special Oscar in 1950.
