The Most Outrageous Salesman I Ever Filmed

By David Hoffman

This is a clip from my first documentary feature film called King Murray. It won the Cannes Film Festival Critics Prize in 1970. Murray King was a most amazing character and ended up selling me life insurance….. at 27 years old!

It was considered experimental because I told the press how I made it– that I had “staged” some of the scenes.

The New York Times panned it and the Wall Street Journal called it one of the 10 best films of that year.
