Murray MacLeod (born September 9, 1940) is an American actor, television and film composer, and singer who, along with his sister, Melinda, and Roger Nichols, formed the Small Circle of Friends (Roger Nichols Trio). Simultaneously, he was a singer with The Parade (along with Jerry Riopelle and Smokey Roberds), that had a Billboard Top 20 hit, "Sunshine Girl" in 1967.
In 1969, MacLeod and Dennis Whitcomb were cast as two young men released from the United States Army still living on a temporarily deserted western fort in the episode "A Full House" of the syndicated television series, Death Valley Days, based on true stories and hosted by Robert Taylor, shortly before Taylor's own death. The two engage in a poker game in which the loser agrees to get married; soon both are in love and things fall into place like a storybook romance. Heidi Vaughn and June Zachary play the female leads.
MacLeod played the role of Monty Harris in a late second season episode of Room 222, who returns from Vietnam and re-enrolls in Walt Whitman High School, hoping to be more of a success than during his first time around.
