Titled Screen Killer: Dwayne Epstein Discusses Lee Marvin, here is the 30-minute video extra from the UK DVD release of THE KILLERS that I was featured in. Taped at the complex of Beverly & Highland, I was honored to take part in the project and am willing and available to do more if any DVD companies are reading this (*hint, hint*)…..
Also, in the review some ‘video savant’ wrote of my segment by criticizing my comments saying Marvin was mostly known for comedy at the time, I say check your facts, buddy. At the time The Killers was being seen, Marvin was mostly known for M Squad which was in syndicated re-runs at the time. One film, Donovan’s Reef was in release but that’s not the way must audiences thought of Marvin…..or John Wayne, for that matter. Just clarifying
One more thing: The clip does include some major spoilers, so if you haven’t seen the film, you might want to do that first. That said, as the author of Lee Marvin Point Blank, I can tell you that I highlight Lee’s contribution the the film and the cinema of violence. MUCH more is in the book of course. Enjoy….
