LEE MARVIN IN CARICATURE
Back in the studio days of Hollywood it was quite common to see caricatures of popular stars in everything from Bugs Bunny cartoons to the walls of the Brown Derby. The trend faded with time but in its prime, Lee Marvin was a ripe target as shown below….
Famed caricaturist Cristiano cleverly rendered James Stewart, Lee and John Wayne in the climax of The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) without giving away ‘too’ much of the plot twist that has to be seen all the way to the end.
A wonderful caricature by STARK for Lee’s 1967 cult classic Point Blank is shown above.
You never really made it as a celebrity unless you were rendered by Al Hirschfeld. For 1977’s Avalanche Express are Lee, Linda Evans and Robert Shaw. Can you spot the Ninas??
