Extremely rare separated contact sheet of Lee Marvin with Gary Cooper on the set of Marvin’s first film, U.S.S. TEAKETTLE (aka YOU’RE IN THE NAVY NOW). Images can be blown up larger and framed, of course.

Two extremely rare onset photos from Lee Marvin’s first film, U.S.S. TEAKETTLE (aka YOU’RE IN THE NAVY NOW). Top photo, Marvin is on the far right with headphones around his neck. Bottom photo Marvin is running second from left. Also pictured is Millard Mitchell, Jack Warden and Harvey Lembeck.

Some but not all of the Velox images used by newspapers during the 1979 “palimony” suit that made headlines for months.

Two separate contact sheets of Michele Triola’s semi-nude modeling days before she met Lee Marvin. Probably the late 50s or early 60s. Images can be blown up larger and framed, of course.

A contact sheet of photos taken on the set of MONTE WALSH of Lee Marvin and Jeanne Moreau, as well as separate images of Ina Balin from THE COMANCHEROS on the same sheet. Images can blown up larger and framed, of course.

Smaller newspaper images from his various films kept on file for the celebrity columns in the 60s-80s. Each measure approx, 3×5, very much like a wallet size photo. Some have captions as shown above.

SAGA MAGAZINE ARTICLE ON LEE MARVIN

Anybody else beside me remember Saga Magazine from back in the 1970s? Saga Magazine was a weird mix of fake hard news, conspiracy theories, macho adventurers, celebrity profiles and scantily clad — but never quite nude (dammit!) — up-and-coming young starlets and models. It was for that reason I didn’t put it in the category of ‘Men’s Magazines” as I did with the Police Gazette, and the like. Based on the 75¢ cover price it might best be described as maybe a poor’s man’s Esquire. Better yet, anybody else remember the magazine, Argosy? Yeah, it’s more like that.
In researching Lee Marvin Point Blank I of course had to scour everything available on Marvin and this article was one of them.There are some decent quotes in it but the  attributed author, Jim Sirmans (or perhaps the editor), really needed to check the facts in the piece. Lee’s father’s name was NOT Courtenay. That of course, was his mother’s name. The film he made with John Wayne was not The Heroes but The Comancheros. Ah well.  Enough nitpicking. Below is the article I speak of. Enjoy!

Cover of the June, 1974 issue of SAGA barely featuring Lee Marvin.

MOVIE TIE-IN PAPERBACKS TO LEE MARVIN’S EARLIEST FILMS

Paperback Tie-ins
Ahh, Hollywood. If it’s ever possible to make a few extra sheckels via promotional ideas connected to a project, rest assured the studios will do it. A good example is the now quicky fading movie tie-in paperback, a former staple in bookstores, revolving drugstore book racks, bus stations, you name it!
Below are several examples of movie tie-in paperbacks to Lee Marvin projects even before he was a known entity.

Reissue covers of The Big Heat & Violent Saturday paperbacks.

Lee Marvin had important, scene-stealing roles in both The Big Heat (1953) and Violent Saturday (1955,) but you’d never know it from the pulp noir covers shown above.

 

Raintree County (1957) and the excellent Seven Men From Now (1956) also featured excellent Marvin performances but since he was yet to be established, his name are image is nowhere to be found. Author Burt Kennedy, by the way, wrote the screenplay for Seven Men From Now and would go on to become a noted western film director.

Paperback covers for M Squad & Hollywood Confidential, featuring profile of Lee Marvin

 

When film success proved elusive, Marvin went to television and starred and co-produced the successful crime drama, M Squad. (1957-1960). The recognition resulted in such media attention as the tabloid collection shown above in which Marvin gave one of his most revealing interviews.

Movie tie-in paperback covers for The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance & The Comancheros

By the early 1960s, film stardom was still out of his grasp but he did make impressive appearances in the John Wayne films The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) and The Comancheros (1961) as shown above. Even his name was mentioned on the covers! Liberty Valance was an original story by Dorothy M. Johnson (“A Man Called Horse”)  but the paperback was novelized by the film’s screenwriter and frequent John Ford cohort, James Warner Bellah. Go figure.
