Description   [from Freebase]

Don Murphy (born April 1967) is an American film producer who produced Natural Born Killers and many other films, including Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Born in April 1967, Murphy grew up in Hicksville, New York and was educated at Chaminade High School in Mineola, New York. He attended Georgetown University and received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) from the McDonough School of Business. Having excelled academically, he was accepted into Georgetown Law. Murphy was the film critic for the Georgetown school newspaper for three years, and in summer jobs at his father's advertising agency worked on ad campaigns for such films as Blow Out (1981), Under the Rainbow (1981) and Ragtime (1981). In 1986 Murphy realized that his calling lay in films rather than law; he enrolled in the School of Cinema-Television (now named USC School of Cinematic Arts) in California, where he had classmates including eventual directors Bryan Singer, Jon Turteltaub, Gary Fleder, and Stephen Sommers, and received a Master of Fine Arts. He is married to Susan Montford, a film director, film producer, and screenwriter with whom he frequently collaborates.
