Happy Birthday, Lee Marvin!

Posted by on Wed, Feb 19, 2014 at 2:07 PM

The toughest tough guy in cinematic history would have been 90 years old today. If you'd like to learn a little more about him, I reviewed a very good new biography about Marvin late last year.

(Thanks to Scarecrow Video for the celebrity birthday reminders and film recommendations on Twitter.)

And I bought that book for my Dad based on your review, Paul. I didn't know you were going to accuse me of being a 1%er at a later date.

@3, you're still mad about the coffee thing, aren't you? Filthy plutocrat. I'll bet you got indoor plumbing, too!

Was just musing about an episode of the Twilight Zone, "Steel" (as a metaphor for someone depending on a technology way beyond its utility). It featured Mr. Marvin.
