Trivia: This DRIVE-IN DIRT author's hometown of Bloomington, Illinois is known for the headquarters of State Farm Insurance Company (Like a good neighbor...) and another homegrown product, K. GORDON MURRAY (1922-1979), son of a local funeral director (how appropriate). If you're watching a dubbed movie originally made in Mexico during the 1950's and 1960's, chances are Kenneth Gordon Murray is the one responsible for bringing it to the U.S.A.

When Murray wasn't driving his daddy's hearse, he was getting a toehold in the carnie sideshow business. With his contacts there, K.G.M. aided the casting director of 1939's Wizard of Oz in locating midgets for the movie's munchkin roles. The first films he distributed (only to drive-ins) were non-Mexican exploitation flicks Wasted Lives--The Birth of Twins and Why Girls Leave Home, about teenage pregnancies. His first Mexican acquisition was 521-SANTA CLAUS. In addition to 102-THE ROBOT VS. THE AZTEC MUMMY, Murray's other imports from South of the Border include: Little Red Riding Hood and Her Friends; Tom Thumb and Little Red Riding Hood; Puss N' Boots; Doctor of Doom; 624-SAMSON VS. THE VAMPIRE WOMEN; and Wrestling Women Vs. the Aztec Mummy. He also got hold of some children's movies made in Bavaria.

By 1967, the demand for these types of films waned, so Murray started producing his own movies like Shanty Tramp, Savages From Hell, and The Daredevil. Even though Murray was successful in Florida real estate development, he couldn't shake the desire to work in film production, and would do so until his death from a heart attack at age 57.
