CONTEST: WIN A SIGNED COPY OF LEE MARVIN: PONT BLANK

Yes, you read the headline, right: You can win a free copy of Lee Marvin: Point Blank signed by me, author Dwayne Epstein, directly to the winner of this contest. It works like this: In all the years I had been working on the book I was always able to identify any image related to Marvin and his career. There is a single exception to that and it still irks me. Years ago, at Eddie Brandt’s Saturday Matinee in Hollywood, I came acros an 8×10 still that to this day I have no idea what project it’s from! Unlike most studio stills, this one had no identifying information on it and any attached studio-generated caption or blurb had long since been seperated from it. All I know is that it’s from the 1950s as Lee is younger and is hair is darker. I can’t indentify the other actor in the picture either but at first I thought it was character actor, Dabbs Greer but clearly is not. At any rate, I don’t think it’s from a film but probably an early TV appearance by Marvin. I had even showed the photo to Lee’s first wife, Betty Marvin, who was very familiar with his work from that time, and she couldn’t identify it, either.
Anyone willing to write-in with indentifying information and confirmable data will win a free postage-paid (in the U.S. only – any international particpant will have to negotiate the postage) trade paperback copy of the book personally inscribed by yours truly, any way you like.  So, come on all you Marvinphiles out there, take a chance! Check out the photo below and comment in the comment section right after it. You can click to enlarge it for better viewing. Please feel free to ask any and all questions here as well. Good luck!
