Paint Your Wagon's Ben Rumson, aka Lee Marvin

 Paint Your Wagon was released by Paramount Pictures in 1969...
music by Lerner and Loewe, directed by Joshua Logan.
Almost 3 hours in length, a budget that swelled to $20 million,
and delays a-aplenty in production.
Despite box office success, it did not make enough to cover its costs.

 Here's Lee Marvin, as he "sings" a wistful "Wand'rin' Star."
Sources say he did plenty of heavy drinking during production
which may have enhanced (or detracted) from his performance...
it certainly added to the delays.

 Clint Eastwood, Jean Seberg, and Lee...
family portrait!

1924 - 1987
