If you’ve taken the time to visit here on occasion then you know by now that Lee Marvin ranks pretty high on my list of favorite actors or tough guys of cinema if you prefer. My earliest memory of this iconic actor is seeing Lee lead the Dirty Dozen into enemy territory in front of a who’s who of legendary tough guys when I was a kid staying up late next to Dad on the couch for a late seventies airing of the famed Robert Aldrich flick.

For those who love the films of Lee, enjoy.

For those who are not familiar with the WW2 veteran and his Academy Award winning career, get moving and discover the films of Lee Marvin.
