is don murray still alive
Unlike many 1950s-’60s heartthrobs, the lean, 6-foot-2 actor often chose serious roles, like the Korean War veteran/closet drug addict he played in A Hatful of Rain, or the Bible-reading cowboy who accidentally kills a powerful rancher’s son in From Hell To Texas. Murray, who co-wrote the screenplay based on Wilkerson’s best-selling book, remembers the film as “crucified by critics.”, “But it broke all records in 45 different theaters, was translated into 30 languages and made more money at the box office than Bus Stop,” he explains. Murray was born in 1929 to Dennis Aloisius Murray and his wife Ethel Cook. He is best known for playing Governor Breck, the authoritarian ruler in the science fiction film "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes" (1972).

Alumnus of the AADA (American Academy of Dramatic Arts), Class of 1948. Among the few critics who actually liked the film was Gene Siskel (1946-1999), writing for the newspaper "Chicago Tribune".In the late 1970s, Murray was reduced to mostly appearing on television films. The film was an adaptation of a 1955 theatrical play by William Inge (1913-1973). He was invited to the White House by Eisenhower to discuss his service as the administration considered the possibility of a Peace Corps (not realized until Kennedy's administration), but he had to decline to due his live-TV commitments. His character was written out as having died during a surgery.During the 1980s, Murray had few appearances in theatrical films.

The same year he starred in one of his most successful roles, that of Johnny Pope in the drama A Hatful of Rain.
