That rocks! And from the eyes up, he looks like Angus Scrimm.

While we're on the subject, someone please put out a decent version of Dog Days on DVD.

Heard there was a Lee Marvin Appreciation Society out there somewhere. If there isn't, there should be.

That is a great cover!

Martin - you're probably thinking of the infamous "Sons of Lee Marvin" which is a sort of exclusive club formed by Jim Jarmusch and some of it's members include Tom Waits, John Lurie, Nick Cave, Iggy Pop and Mickey Rourke. The club supposedly meets occasionally to watch Lee Marvin movies together and no women are allowed to join. As a girl I've got to add that I find the idea of the "Sons of Lee Marvin" damn sexy!

further to Cinebeats' observation:

from an Interview magazine interview with Jarmusch, 1989

“I’m not at liberty to divulge information about the organization, other than to tell you that it does exist. I can identify three other members of the organization: Tom Waits, John Lurie, and Richard Bose. You have to have a facial structure such that you could be related to, or be a son of, Lee Marvin. There are no women, obviously, in the organization. We have communiques and secret meetings. Other than that, I can’t talk about it.”
