One of Woodstock New York’s local newspaper was and surprisingly still is The Daily Freeman. As a local entity, it routinely ran information of upcoming events. This rare clipping below is one such example but it is doubtful anyone on the paper knew they were heralding the acting debut of a future Oscar winner. The humorous account of the 1946 Red Cross Benefit entitled, “Ten Nights in a Barroom,” is chronicled in Lee Marvin: Point Blank but the clipping below was part of the Marvin family attic that did not make it into the book. Why the name ‘William Pierpont’ and his face have been scratched out only Lee Marvin knows….
