About Lee Marvin (1924 – 1987)
Lee Marvin was born in New York City. He had difficulty in school throughout his life because of his bad behavior. In the beginning of WWII he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was sent to fight the Japanese in the Battle of Saipan where his sciatic nerve was severed by a gunshot to the buttocks.

After the war Marvin became a plumbers apprentice in Woodstock, NY. While working on a job in a local theatre he fell in love with the dramatic arts. He joined the theater company and appeared in many off-broadway productions. He then studied acting under the G.I. Bill

Marvin Lee got his feet wet as a extra in the film You're In The Navy Now. The director took a liking to him and expanded his role. He progressed to Broadway in the show Billy Budd.

He played a succession of small television roles before moving to Hollywood. He played rough, hard-bitten characters – usually police detectives or villains. His big break came when he won the leading role in Eight Iron Men.
