Happy Birthday To Lee Marvin
As Biography.com notes, today is the birthday of one of my favorite actors, the late Lee Marvin.
Actor Lee Marvin was born on February 19, 1924, in New York City. He eventually earned lead roles when his aggressive nature was perceived by such directors as Edward Dmytryk, Fritz Lang, and John Boorman. Marvin appeared in about 70 films between 1951 and 1986. He first branched out into sympathetic film roles in the early 1960s, partly thanks to his role in TV's M Squad. He died on August 29, 1987, in Tucson, Arizona.

Note: There are a good number of films with Lee Marvin that I watch again and again, such as The Dirty Dozen, Point Blank and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Marvin, a combat Marine in WWII, was a fine actor.
