Lee Marvin Archives? Yes, Lee Marvin archives. I recently completed archiving ALL of my exclusive Lee Marvin research material that I used for Lee Marvin Point Blank by scanning and putting it on CD. The eight full volumes of binders were organized chronologically and consists of at least a 100 pages in each volume. It was pretty labor intensive as it took me over a month and was well over a 1,000 pages in total! I did manage to get everything on one CD, though. It is a true must-have for any Lee Marvin as I can guarantee you’ll discover things not see anywhere else. ANYONE INTERESTED IN A COPY CAN CONTACT ME HERE OR VIA FACEBOOK. FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING!
The computer folders breakdown like this, with samples below…
1. Ancestry & Parents, 78 pages: Family details dating back to the 17th century,
including verified info on Lee’s great uncle Ross Marvin’s actual cause of death and his father Monte Marvin’s childhood reaction!
2. Childhood & Life thru 1965, over 200 pages: This volume is the thickest as I was not planning on doing more than one volume. Consequently, I squeezed in everything I discovered from his early life, all the way up to and including his massive success by 1965.
It covers and documents his childhood, school years, war years, postwar years, early stage work, early film work, ascent to stardom and his full-fledged stardom by the mid-1960s.
3. Films & Life, 1966-1970, over 190 pages: Emphasis on Marvin’s films from this period includes
interviews and profiles in every major magazine at the time, from Playboy to Coronet, and every periodical in between, large or small, and many no longer in print or available online.
4. Life & Films,1971-1975, 104 pages: Extensive coverage of the films he made via
various articles, interviews and foreign periodicals, many of which no longer exist.
5. Palimony & More, 1976-1979, 136 pages: THE water cooler conversation of the late
70s was the infamous palimony suit Marvin was involved in. Here are all the daily rundowns of the court proceedings as well the actual legal impact the case had. By the way, it did NOT turn out the way most people think it did.
6. Late Life Interviews, 1980-1986, 125 pages: The old warhorse worked less in his
later years but did give many fascinating interviews in which he whimsically looked back on his life and work.
7. Obituary & Legacy, 1987-1999, 114 pages: Complete coverage of his passing in
August, 1987, as well as his legacy among friends and coworkers.
8. Growing Cult Status, 2000-2012, 119 pages: Since his passing in 1987, and his
growing cult status ever since, Lee Marvin is remembered through a variety of sources, from a small repertory movie theater in Tucson to the Film Comment and MTV!!!
