“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
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.

5.0 su 5 stelle POINT BLANK HITS A BULLSEYE! 12 ottobre 2016
Di Charles A. Christesson - Pubblicato su
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
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.

5.0 su 5 stelle LEE MARVIN: PROFESSIONAL 9 dicembre 2014
Di Daniel O'Connell - Pubblicato su

I became aware of the actor Lee Marvin at an very early age. His villainy on film impressed this young viewer with shocking, modern-life realism, as heretofore I only encountered film and TV villains from "make believe" Westerns and cartoons. But Marvin's evil portrayals were of people that you might walk past on the sidewalk, the type that Mom and Dad had warned my brother and me, "Don't talk to strangers and never get into their car!" So as much as I admired the film hero, I was always equally impressed with the film villain, for later, my amateur film-historian Mother would also teach me, "If the bad guy in the movie scares you, then he is successfully doing his job!"

For those that took note, Lee Marvin repeatedly did his job successfully. His film presence permeated your senses, in any genre. For instance, watch "Hangman's Knot" (1952), Burt Kennedy's horse opera melodrama starring Randolph Scott and ask yourself, if you never saw him again on film, that that henchman unknown actor (Marvin) is a real bad ass! Then came, "The Big Heat"(1953), "The Wild One"(1953),"Bad Day at Black Rock (1955), all those TV roles, and finally "The Killers" (1964). By this time, every film fan knew; Lee Marvin was a very successful bad ass!

But what most do not know, even to this day, is, "Who is Lee Marvin and where did he come up with his larger than life film persona?"

Dwayne Epstein's new book, "Point Blank" answers all of our questions. And all; very successfully!

Lee Marvin's time defined him. His youth began in the shadows of his ancestors. For instance, a great Uncle of Lee's was a prominent accomplice to a world famous explorer, and became "the talk" of the family, especially Lee's Father, (who never fulfilled his own destiny) but drug and browbeat his younger son Lee into what became, a false admiration, egging Lee into action, for in an ironic twist-of-fate, this hero Uncle's true epitaph was finally written decades later and took a shocking turn of events.

Marvin progresses from boyhood to reckless teenager to US Marine, not only becoming a card-carrying "Greatest Generation" member, but a decorated combat hero. Lee saw war action that no human being should have to and his war duty changed his psyche in a way that never left him; tested and tortured.

Epstein documents Marvin's life through family and friend first-hand accounts, deftly inserted into his fascinating narrative that Lee's life story becomes "filmic" in itself, begging for a screen adaptation of his incredible journey.

Lee Marvin left the military and pursued his former early interest in acting. But now with a vengeance.

I am reminded of the Val Kilmer line from Tombstone (1993) {not a Marvin film}, wherein Doc Holiday explains the motivation of ultra-villain Johnny Ringo, "Oh, make no mistake. It's not revenge he's after. It's a reckoning."
