Featuring a large cast, impresive sets and lots of beautiful "Glamourlovelies", Murray was very much an old time stage performer, sporting a fedora, cigar and cane. His trademark set was the corner of Hollywood and Vine. In an unusual twist for a mostly comedy show, he regularly featured a live performance of a dramatic scene from a play or movie. He had a soft spot for older vaudeville performers and had them on often and because he was much-loved Hollywood figure, he was able to get major stars to appear, sometimes simply in quick cameos.
