Movie Ad of the Week: MURPH THE SURF (1974)

World Premiere
- August 9, 1974 - Miami, FL

Every single reference we've ever seen for MURPH THE SURF -- based on the 1964 "Jewel Heist of the Century," in which the Star of India and other precious gems were stolen from the Museum of Natural History in New York by two Miami Beach surfers, Jack Roland Murphy and Alan Kuhn -- lists the movie as a 1975 release. However, that only applies to American International's rollout of the film under the title LIVE A LITTLE, STEAL A LOT. Above is the ad for the movie's world premiere in three Miami theaters on August 9, 1974.
