Grade 7-10-A sensitive look at one of Hollywood's biggest box-office stars. The multitalented young entertainer's childhood and early career are recounted with plenty of examples of the raw humor and sharp wit that have characterized his acts. Wilburn honestly explores the problems that went hand in hand with fame as Murphy climbed to the top of the American scene, and relates some of them without resorting to tabloid sensationalism. Because of his huge popularity with teens and high name recognition, this book, although already a bit dated, is sure to be popular.
