Marvin was in many many movies, and starred in many more. But it's him as Chino that I always think of when the name Lee Marvin comes up . . . and his panhead motorcycle is the style which thousands were stripped to resemble . . . 'til this very day.
Lee was born in New York City. He served in the Marines in WWII. Marvin was a democrat and against the war in Vietnam. He moved to Hollywood around 1950, and got the part of Chino in the movie "The Wild One" along-side Marlon Brando just 2 years later. Married and divorced and then sued by a girlfriend (he didn't do so well with relationships with women). Later in life he moved to Arizona and died there in 1987.
