August 29: Lee Marvin died on this day in 1987...

He was 63 and died from complications from a stroke-induced coma.

Known as a legendary actor, Marvin also sang. Born in New York City, he studied violin when he was 7 a far cry from the villain roles he played early in his career, and the rough and tumble characters he played later on. He is probably best known for the movies "The Professionals," "The Dirty Dozen," "Cat Ballou," "Ship of Fools," "Paint Your Wagon," and "the Man Who Shot Liberty Valence."
