This book provides an intimate glimpse into the life of Lee Marvin from the woman who knew him best. Pamela Marvin met Lee when she was a teenage schoolgirl in Woodstock, New York, and he a wounded hero returning from the war. They fell into a love affair that gradually evaporated when he went to New York to become an actor. Their marriages to other people failed and twenty years later Lee turned up on Pamela's doorstep with his suitcase. They were together until his death. The book celebrates their life together - not only the films but also the fishing exploits - and dramatizes the details of the palimony suit brought against Lee by an ex-lover, a case that made legal history. It also contains Lee Marvin's journals from the battlefields of World War II, as well as an account of the errors and accidents that led to his premature death.
