Born Today in 1924: Lee Marvin

Lee Marvin is one of a few actors who immediately grabs my attention once I see him in a film.  His rough dog face and low, rumbling voice let you know that he is a force to be reckoned with.  I remember him as a kid from The Dirty Dozen (1963).  He's had so many memorable roles, from Point Blank (1967) to the drunk from Cat Ballou (1965).  Personally he made a big impact on me as Charlie Strom, the ruthless and remorseless hitman of the duo in Don Siegel's The Killers (1964).

Lady, I don't have the time...
