Prematurely white-haired character star who began as a supporting player of generally vicious demeanor, then metamorphosed into a star of both action and drama projects, Lee Marvin was born in New York City to Lamont Marvin, an advertising executive, and his wife Courtenay, a fashion writer. The young Marvin was thrown out of dozens of schools for incorrigibility. His parents took him to Florida, where he attended St. Leo's Preparatory School near Dade City. Dismissed there as well, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps at the beginning of World War II. In the battle of Saipan in June 1944, he was wounded in the buttocks by Japanese fire which severed his sciatic nerve. He received a medical discharge and got menial work as a plumber's apprentice in Woodstock, NY. While repairing a toilet at the local community theater, he was asked to replace an ailing actor in a rehearsal. He was immediately stricken with a love for the theater and went to New York City, where he studied and played small roles in stock and Off-Broadway. He landed an extra role in Henry Hathaway's You're in the Navy Now (1951), and found his role expanded when Hathaway took a liking to him. Returning to the stage, he made his Broadway debut in "Billy Budd", and after a succession of small TV roles, moved to Hollywood, where he began playing heavies and cops in roles of increasing size and frequency. Given a leading role in Eight Iron Men (1952), he followed it with enormously memorable heavies in The Big Heat (1953) and The Wild One (1953). Now established as a major screen villain, Marvin began shifting toward leading roles with a successful run as a police detective in the TV series "M Squad" (1957). A surprise Oscar for his dual role as a drunken gunfighter and his evil, noseless brother in the western comedy Cat Ballou (1965) placed him in the upper tiers of Hollywood leading men, and he filled out his career with predominantly action-oriented films. A long-term romantic relationship with Michelle Triola led, after their breakup, to a highly publicized lawsuit in which Triola asked for a substantial portion of Marvin's assets. Her case failed in its main pursuit, but did establish a legal precedent for the rights of unmarried cohabitors, the so-called "palimony" law. Marvin continued making films of varying quality, always as a star, until his sudden death from a heart attack in 1987.

  • The body of Lee Marvin was interred next to that of Joe Louis in Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Va. USA.
  • Son Christopher born 1952.
  • Daughter Courtenay born 1954.
  • Daughter Cynthia born 1956.
  • Daughter Claudia born 1958.
  • Was a direct descendant of Thomas Jefferson.
  • Was Spielberg's first choice for the role of Quint in _Jaws (1975)_ .
  • Was as suprised as anyone when his recording of "Wandering Star", from the "Paint Your Wagon" soundtrack, became a suprise hit, earning the Gold Record (the standard in those days) for one million copies sold in 1969.
  • Not a sentimental man by nature, Marvin kept only four souvenirs of his career over the years. These were his Best Actor Oscar for "Cat Ballou", the citation he received from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame for his performance in "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance", his Gold Record for "Wandering Star" and the high-heeled shoe that Vivien Leigh beat him with in "Ship of Fools".
  • Named after Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, who was his first cousin four times removed.
  • Bonded with co-star Vivien Leigh on the set of "Ship of Fools" (1965). When he and his partner Michelle Triola visited Leigh at her exquisite home in England, he tore up a deck of antique playing cards that they were playing with. Much to Triola's surprise, Leigh was not at all disturbed by Marvin's boorish behavior but seemed enchanted by him.
  • When serving in the Marine Corps became best friends with John Miara of Malden, Mass.
  • Turned down the lead role of Gen. George S. Patton Jr. in Patton (1970).
  • Revisted Saipan (the sight of his wounding during World War II) in 1967, where his guide was P. F. Kluge, who went on to write "Eddie and the Cruisers."
