Murray Melvin passes away

Sadly Murray Melvin has passed away.  He was a loyal  supporter of Ken's works and would attend screenings of his films.

I was fortunate enough to meet and talk with Melvin, a friendly, open and intelligent person.  Someone asked him how old he was- he said 29 and he said he would continue to say that until he decided to move to 30.

His first role for Ken was 1964's The Diary of a Nobody


Further roles for Ken were in  Isadora Duncan, the Biggest Dancer in the World, The Devils, The Boyfriend, Lizstomania, Clouds of Glory and Prisoner of Honor from 1991.
