Product description

Review

"Thanks to Epstein's literary efforts, Marvin's place in the pantheon of legitimate silver screen heroes is secure." --Marshall Terrill, author, "Steve McQueen: The Life and Legend of a Hollywood Icon"

"Unforgettable. . . . A surprisingly intelligent and heroic figure springs from the page. . . . Epstein looks at a complicated figure and presents him in a full-length, three-way mirror. And it is absolutely impossible to look away." --Stefan Kanfer, "New York Times"-bestselling author, "Tough Without A Gun: The Life and Extraordinary Afterlife of Humphrey Bogart"

"Epstein masterfully lays out and puts together all the pieces of the Marvin puzzle without moralizing or salivating. All future writing about Lee Marvin will be measured against [this book]. Like its subject, it will be a tough act to follow." --Bill Krohn, author, "Hitchcock at Work"

"It's a good Hollywood bio, focusing on its subject's public and private lives without descending into the sort of gossip and rumor that typify many celebrity life stories" and "This is the kind of biography Lee Marvin deserves."--"Booklist Online", December 21, 2012

"Epstein's admiration for his subject is clear yet never too heavy-handed. A well-paced, thoughtful examination of a singular corpus of work that influenced film portrayals of violence in subsequent decades."--"Kirkus Reviews" (Nov. 15, 2012)


"Epstein has crafted a thorough, intimate, and highly readable portrait of this imposing actor who became an unlikely star...I doubt anyone will ever match its breadth and depth in assessing Lee Marvin's life and career."--"Leonard Maltin, Movie Crazy"

"Epstein hits the bulls eye."--"Noir City", a publication of the Film Noir Foundation

"Author Epstein takes on the not-inconsiderable goal of fleshing out Marvin as a genuine person. His outstanding book presents meticulously researched facts about the man and his work, combined with insightful comments and interviews from those who knew him."--"Cinema Retro"

."..good, warts-and-all portrait of a truly complicated man, seen through Epstein's sympathetic eyes."--"True West"

"Epstein handles Marvin's career and checkered personal life with equal adroitness." --"Filmfax"
