Lee Marvin

Lee was a rowdy teen who changed schools regularly. After a stint in the Marines  & some work as a plumber  in an old theater Lee Marvin stumbled into acting. His tough-guy persona & his trademark white-hair were enough to catapult him from small villainous roles to popular heroic leads.

It includes biographical information on Marvin, an analysis of each of his 64 movies, chapters on his two television shows (M Squad and Lawbreaker), a listing of his television appearances, and a complete filmography (which includes video availability).
