Here's a very brief but revealing audio interview with Jimmy Murphy, Stan Laurel's valet. Jimmy recalls his time with actress Joan Crawford and reveals the "gift" she received from her then husband Alfred Steele.

It's interesting to hear Jimmy's recollections in his unique accent.

This was recorded by our roving reporter, Steve Wichrowski, Jr., at the Sons of the Desert 1984 International Convention in London and Ulverston.
