Murphy learned how to write screenplays so his younger brother could star in them. The very first movie that I ever wrote was called The Peddler. It was written in 1986 and it sold to Paramount for a hundred and fifty thousand dollars, he said. Writing films worked out well for the Murphy brothers.
