“I bet you're a big Lee Marvin fan, aren't you? Yeah, me too. I love that guy.” - RESERVOIR DOGS.

It’s no secret that my favorite film is POINT BLANK (starring Lee Marvin), based on the novel THE HUNTER by Richard Stark - I use it as an example in my book on how to write action movies. And danged if THE PROFESSIONALS (starring Lee Marvin) doesn’t end up an example in my book on dialogue. And when Film Courage recently interviewed me about writing for actors, my example was the Don Siegel version of THE KILLERS, and an amazing line reading by Lee Marvin. I am a big Lee Marvin fan! So I had to read this book... and it was even better than I expected.

This is the *definitive* Lee Marvin biography. Epstein leaves no stone unturned - if Lee Marvin had a drink with some guy in junior high, that guy is interviewed in this book. His whole damned life is chronicled here, from childhood to almost stardom to stardom and patrimony and death... and beyond (an interview with his son, and a secret organization that worships Lee Marvin - really!).

One of the great things are Marvin’s letters home during the war - you get to know the man in his own words. Lee Marvin’s *life* is almost more entertaining than any movie he was in - I love the story about playing hooky from a film in Hawaii so that he could come back to Los Angeles and have a drink or six. His life is a fascinating tragedy, and this book gives you a front row seat. It’s a great read, too - Epstein tells the story well.

“You're a very bad man, Walker, a very destructive man! Why do you run around doing things like this?” - POINT BLANK

Buy it. Read it. Live it.

5.0 su 5 stelle Epstein writes good books. Even before my purchase 30 luglio 2016
Di Larry Epstein - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I bought this book because I had always been a Lee Marvin fan. I confess that the surname of the author Dwayne Epstein that I share with him (no kin) was a secondary factor. I am not a prolific reader, and I had no idea that he is a prolific and highly-acclaimed biographer of many celebrities. Nor did I have any clue that this book had made the New York Times Best-Seller List. I believe it belongs there. I had no idea that this author had written 13 books, and, with a rating of 3.64 stars from 260 reviewers, there is no doubt that Mr. Epstein writes good books. Even before my purchase, I had read a few off-putting reviews that LEE MARVIN Point Blank doesn't tell readers anything new. I beg to disagree. Epstein's thorough research is devoid of any hearsay and reveals aspects of the actor's life that I had never seen published. I particularly enjoyed extensive information on his family relationships. It's not easy for a writer presenting thousands of facts to present them colorfully, but it's a smooth, seamless, enjoyable read. Sure, the book extols Marvin's popularity and his greatest commercial triumphs. It also details some his projects that weren't big box office winners. The reader will learn that drunk or sober, Lee Marvin was a consummate professional actor admired my his peers for his skills. I entered the book thinking Lee Marvin was this supercool actor who had been a Marine WWII hero. His heroism wasn't schmaltzed up. He was a Marine who got shot and made it home in one piece to resume an acting career that went places. By the end of the book, I had known Marvin intimately enough to find him more tragic than heroic. I didn't expect that, but it was the truth. It's a good book.

When I see an actor on screen, I wonder what is the background that brought them to the acting profession. The psychological elements of acting have always intrigued me. What Dwayne Epstein does in this book is examine all the elements of the life that led to the actor Lee Marvin became. I will admit his story about Marvin's audition for the Actor's Studio won me over. It was an example of how Marvin stripped about the fake and presented what he found to be true from the beginning.
While the later part of his life is well covered, it is the foundation that interests me. None the less the entire life is covered fully in an interesting and engaging fashion.
Marvin's early life with his parents and numerous schools before joining the military were clearly covered with the implications of how that affect him later in life. This is not a soft biography highlighting what is already known, but a biography based on solid research and a good deal of insight. I truly enjoyed reading this book.

5.0 su 5 stelle POINT BLANK HITS A BULLSEYE! 12 ottobre 2016
Di Charles A. Christesson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I say it with pride: I LOVE Lee Marvin. I grew up watching him of M SQUAD with my dad. He touched my heart in RAINTREE COUNTY, he scared the crap out of me in THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALENCE, and he made me laugh, touched my heart, and scared the crap out of me in his Oscar winning role in CAT BALLOU, one of the few at least ostensibly comic performances to earn a Best Actor Oscar. I say "ostensibly comic," because I don't really think there's a difference between comic and dramatic acting, when it comes to an actor as brilliant as Marvin, who just delivers the truth about a character, no matter the setting. I'm very grateful to the talented Dwayne Epstein for writing this book. It's the biography Lee Marvin deserves, and is set up exactly the way I like the biography of an actor to be, with great emphasis on his work as well as on his life. I hate it when this type of biography skims over or just ignores the filmography of the subject and delves into it. Mr. Epstein does not skim or ignore. His prose is smooth and precise, kind of surgical. This is not to say the book is too clinical. On the contrary, it delivers the juicy stuff, as well, just NOT with a leer or a wink. Okay, maybe with the occasional wink. And yes, it's respectful of its subject, and it's obvious that that author loves Mr. Marvin. BUT, he doesn't spare the analysis of the "warts." And, of course, Mr. Marvin didn't live in a vacuum, so the book is a look at Hollywood in all its permutations and machinations, and a look at Mr. Marvin's contemporaries. I pretty much devoured this tasty morsel of a book, and recommend it as highly as I can.

5.0 su 5 stelle Highly Insightful 7 dicembre 2014
Di Jeffrey Miller - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Of all of Hollywood’s leading men from the 1950s to the 1970s, none were perhaps more suitable for the roles they played than Lee Marvin. While he might not have been the box office draw that his contemporaries were, Marvin’s cinematic contributions from The Killers and Cat Ballou to Point Blank and The Big Red One, made him a Hollywood legend.

Other than a palimony suit in the 1970s which thrust Marvin into the national limelight, Marvin had already established himself as a no frills actor who gave new meaning to the term “tough guy.” However, there was much more to the man who fought with the Marines in the Pacific and won an Academy Award for his portrayal of a washed up gunfighter.

In a very readable and straightforward biography of Marvin, Lee Marvin: Point Blank, Dwayne Epstein deconstructs the myth behind the legend and presents an insightful and perhaps, endearing tribute to one of Hollywood’s famous tough guys. One couldn’t ask for a better biography of one of Hollywood’s greats. To be sure, there’s no juicy gossip here: just an honest and insightful look at Marvin’s life both on screen and off. And that’s where Epstein excels as he examines Marvin’s eclectic acting career from stage and television to motion pictures.

One of the first films I remember seeing as a young boy growing up in Illinois in the 1960s was Cat Ballou at the drive in. To this day it remains one of my favorite films as well as The Dirty Dozen and Point Blank. Though I never knew much about Marvin’s life, after reading Epstein’s book I have a greater appreciation for Marvin’s work. One thing is for certain, after reading this book you will want to check out some of Marvin’s films—either for the first time or for a second or third time.
