Review:

Legendary Hollywood hard man Lee Marvin began his career mostly playing bad guys due to his imposing presence and his knack for cutting a mean demeanor that translated very well onto screen. Some near iconic performances in The Big Heat and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance eventually led to properly iconic performances in films like The Dirty Dozen and The Professionals. However, his crowning achievement came when he assumed the role of Walker in John Boorman’s Point Blank (1967) wherein he gave a performance of pure intensity and vengeful drive. A similarly powerful turn in Samuel Fuller’s The Big Red One cemented his reputation as more than just an intimidating screen presence and an actor of genuine talent. Known for having alcoholic tendencies, he often held up shooting schedules when failing to turn up on set or by showing up drunk. That said, on several occasions, he used his reputation as a drunk to buy some extra time for directors who were running behind on schedule for other reasons.
