Summing Up Lee Marvin, the World’s Greatest Heavy, in 17 Words


TCM came up with this poster many years after the original release

“When Lee Marvin asks if you want two lumps with your coffee, he's not talking about sugar.”

I found this quote on Google Images, ascribed to a blog called Ruthless Reviews, about Marvin’s character in The Big Heat. Yet when I went there, the quote was nowhere to be found. And when I Googled under the quote, Google told me—wrongly, since I’d found it via Google!—there was no such quote.


Gloria Grahame and Glenn Ford, in The Big Heat

I was pretty good at handing out lumps when I worked concert security in Chicago back in the 80s and 90s. Matter of fact, we had a saying, "If in doubt, knock out." LOL
