Audie Murphy Movies

The majority of Audie Murphy movies/television appearances are overwhelmingly westerns but he did make films in other genres including at least 12 films/tv appearances in other genres:

  • war/spy/military films including the hugely popular TO HELL AND BACK (Universal’s most successful film until 1975’s JAWS), RED BADGE OF COURAGE, the army comedy JOE BUTTERFLY, BATTLE AT BLOODY BEACH, TRUNK TO CAIRO, and small roles in BEYOND GLORY with Alan Ladd and TEXAS, BROOKLYN AND HEAVEN with Guy Madison.
  • crime/drama/film noir including the boxing drama THE WORLD IN MY CORNER, THE GUN RUNNERS (based on Hemingway’s To Have and Have Not), THE MAN with Thelma Ritter for television, THE FLIGHT on the television series SUSPICION, and BAD BOY.
  • finally in a class of its own although it has elements of both of the above genres, the literary drama/ romance/ thriller THE QUIET AMERICAN based on Graham Greene’s novel.
