34 Port IV MON., JUNE 6, 1 966 pg flltgtlf g TOttteg HAL HUMPHREY The Old Political Song and Dance Getting your own series on TV may be tougher than becoming President of the United States. OK, then, would you believe U.S. senator? You'd better, because on the shelves of a Hollywood film vaults are two TV pilots starring George Murphy, neither of which was considered good enough by Madison Avenue measurements to become a series. Many of you may have been under the impression that our now Sen. Murphy had long ago retired from show .business. Except for emceeing the entertainment at the past four Republican conventions and a GOP rally here and there, song-and-dance man Murphy wasn't much in the public eye. But that wasn't because he hadn't been trying. In 1959 actor Murphy made a TV pilot for Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball at their Desilu Studios. It was a family situation comedy half-hour which had Martha Scott playing his wife, and it was titled "You're Only Young Twice." Two years later (1961) he teamed up with Janet Gay-nor at Desilu, but under a different production banner, to shoot a second pilot called "Sweet 16." This one, too, failed to engender any network andor sponsor interest. As one agency man puts it, "Song-and-dance men don't have much luck with TV. Look at Mickey Rooney and Ray Bolger, who both had series, but not very successful ones." It's no good speculating now, but one wonders who might have been California's junior senator if either of the Murphy TV pilots had sold. He wouldn't likely have traded a hot TV series for a job as a senator. The rewards, both monetary and exposure-wise, shall we say, are simply not comparable. When All Else Fails Obviously, however, there is a similarity between show business, and politics, and when an actor's career begins phasing out on him, it is only natural he'd look toward politics as a second career. He hasn't said so, but isn't it reasonable to suppose that Ronald Reagan took his first serious look at a possible political career only after the GE Theater went off CBS-TV in 1962, following a nearly 10-year run? Reagan made some guest appearances on TV after that, but nothing very steady unless you count hosting Death Valley Days, and unlike George Murphy's situation, apparently no one was hiring him to make a TV pilot for a proposed series. If Reagan wins California's gubernatorial primary on the Republican ticket Tuesday, several TV producers will be kicking themselves for not having the foresight to see that he still had a grass-roots potential. Wendell Corey is on the same Tuesday California ballot running for Congress in the 28th District. Several years ago Corey was star of a TV series, Harbor Command, and more recently he was starred in a psychiatric drama series, Eleventh Hour, which he didn't get to finish. Ralph Bellamy took over for the second and last season in 1963-64. Bellamy, by the way, would have a great headstart in the field of politics with the image he created by playing Franklin Delano Roosevelt in both the play and movie version of "Sunrise at Campobello." Republicans Have Edge On a partisan basis the Republican actors have the edge so far, with Sen. Murphy already in office, and Reagan and Corey running in primaries. Steve Allen, a Democrat, intended to run for Congress, but had overlooked registering the year before. In the 40s Helen Gahagan Douglas made it to Congress after a Hollywood career, the only Democrat to do so thus far. I suppose one might make the case that Democrats are more successful actors, so haven't had the need to go into politics. Still, one also could say that only the Republicans are versatile enough to include politics in their histrionic repertoires. Of the new crop of actors who seem to have political aspirations there are Robert Vaughn (Democrat-Man from UNCLE), Dan Blocker (Democrat-Bonanza) and Chuck Connors (Republican-Rifleman). It's always a question, of course, how the electorate will react to such political casting. When moviemaker Jack L. Warner first heard Ronald Reagan was running for governor, he is suppoed to have said, "Frankly, I would have cast Dennis Morgan as governor and Reagan as his best friend."
