LEE MARVIN RESEARCH MATERIAL FIRE SALE ON EBAY

Having finished Lee Marvin Point Blank more than three years ago, I have found myself with a plethora of collectible research material and memorabilia I have no room to maintain while trying to concentrate on my next project. So, the most logical thing to do with said material is to sell them to the most interested parties. Ebay has proved to be an excellent venue and I have proceeded to do just that.
What it is I’m referring to is rich and varied. I had been working on the book for almost 20 years so consequently, I have amassed quite a collection: Everything from original film & TV stills, to countless magazines, clippings, books, presskits, pressbooks, videos, you name it! These rarities cross the spectrum of media as Marvin’s career ws equally varied and encompassed film, TV and stage. Below are several typical examples currently on Ebay, such as this collection of Western paperback tie-ins. By the way, if you didn’t know (as I didn’t, until I learned) the words in blue here are actually links to the Ebay page of the items, which allows you go right to it and check the items out. But first…..

A better description and accompanying images exist on the auction page, by the way. Other items include some of the other books I had to read, for better or for worse, that helped with my research. Here are two examples. Lee’s widow, Pam Marvin’s book, Lee: A Romance, was acquired as an uncorreted, proof, as shown below…

Also acquired was Donald Zec’s book, Marvin, in paperback format which was ‘authorized’ by Lee, although he later said much of what was in it, he concocted….

Not all the items I’ve listed are of similiar ilk. Take for example the original lobby cards from Point Blank also show below….

The preceding items were simply random examples of what I’m selling. There are more, of course, including several non-Marvin related items, if you’re a fan of pop culture in general. Over the next several weeks and months I’ll be posting more items, so if in reading this, you have a personal favorite item you’ve always wanted to own, by all means message me her at the space provided below and I’ll make every effort to fulfill your ‘wish list.’ Until then, please feel free to check out all my postings and take full advantage of this Lee Marvin Ebay fire sale.
