Hey I didn't notice it but you're right. Newman especially.

I'm watching this on DVD right now by the way. It's pretty good - nothing really special, but entertaining enough.

What's the Spanish for drunken bum?

reply

They were both much younger then, and very much alive. Newman and Marvin work well together, but the script doesn't give them much to go on.

reply

If not for the Newman/Marvin interactions and some of the cinematography this film was a giant disappointment. It would be interesting to know how either of the stars felt about it after completion.

Unfortunately, neither Newman nor Marvin is around to tell us how they felt about the film, and they didn't seem to talk much about it when they were still with us.

reply

I read at the time it was released that Marvin said he could have gotten a bj from anyone of several young girls in the thing. That was his only thought on it besides the cool million he got for it.

Nothing is more beautiful than nothing.

That gives the title a whole new layer of meaning.

i doubt marvin got a million for acting in this movie. especially in 1972.

paydays werent that big yet, not for something like this one.

There are a couple of Lee Marvin interviews where he says that Paul Newman, who had the final cut rights (his company produced the film), cut a lot of stuff out of the movie. Maybe the film suffered from it. Perhaps the Malick script will be published one day. Does anybody know if Stuart Rosenberg was ever asked about this movie?

reply

I generally trust Paul Newman's instincts as an actor, producer and director, but this film does appear to be a bit of a hatchet job. And sorry, I don't know if Stuart Rosenberg commented on this film.
