Lee Marvin (Emperor of the North)
Lee Marvin (Emperor of the North)
Lee Marvin, Movie Tough Guy, Dies Lee Marvin, who rebelled against a sheltered childhood to build an image as the consummate ''tough guy'' in the movies and in real life, died of a heart attack yesterday at the Tucson Medical Center in Arizona. He was 63 years old. Mr. Marvin won an Academy Award in 1966 for his role in ''Cat Ballou,'' and he played an unwanted part in a landmark ''palimony'' suit that set a precedent for legal cases involving property rights for unmarried couples. Tom Reavis, a spokesman for the hospital, told The Associated Press that Mr. Marvin died about noon, with his wife, Pamela, at his side. He had been hospitalized since Aug. 13 with what Mr. Reavis described as a run-down condition related to the flu. Last December, Mr. Marvin underwent intestinal surgery after suffering abdominal pains while at his ranch outside of Tucson. Doctors said then there was an inflammation of the colon, but that no malignancy was found. Mr. Marvin was born into a well-to-do New York City family in 1924. At the age of 4, he ran away from home and was not found for two days. ''I wasn't having any too much discipline even then,'' Mr. Marvin said in a 1966 interview. He was sent to a succession of exclusive Eastern boarding schools, and was expelled from many of them for such infractions as throwing a roommate from a second-floor window and for smoking cigarettes. In 1942, with permission from his father, who was an advertising executive, Mr. Marvin dropped out of a prep school in Florida to join the Marines. ''After a sheltered life I went the other way,'' Mr. Marvin said. ''I wanted to prove how tough I was.'' Mr. Marvin made 21 landings on Pacific islands as a scout sniper before a Japanese bullet severed a nerve just below the spine and left him hospitalized and in rehabilitation for 13 months. When he recovered, Mr. Marvin drifted aimlessly through a score of menial jobs until his work as a plumber's apprentice - digging septic tanks near his family's home in Woodstock, N.Y. - took him to a local summer-stock playhouse. As a lark, he asked for and won an acting job. After a series of small roles, he earned a part in a Broadway production of ''Billy Budd.'' That was followed in the early 1950's by more than 200 featured roles in television dramas. And those roles led to a part as an extra in the movie ''You're in the Navy Now,'' which prompted Mr. Marvin to move to the West Coast. Soon after arriving in Hollywood, he played the widely acclaimed part of a psychopathic multiple murderer in an early episode of ''Dragnet.'' That role, perhaps more than any, led him to be typecast as a ''bad guy.'' The movie critic Bosley Crowther said of Mr. Marvin, ''He is rapidly becoming the No. 1 sadist of the screen.'' From 1957 to 1960, Mr. Marvin was able to break out of the bad-guy mold to play a tough but sympathetic police lieutenant in the popular television series ''M Squad.'' His first starring role in a motion picture came in 1965 in ''Cat Ballou'' in which he played a dual role - as a drunken gunfighter and his more professional gunslinging brother - opposite Jane Fonda. The role won him the Academy Award. To receive his award, Mr. Marvin had to take five days off from filming of what would become another of his signature roles, that of the quick-fisted, hard-driving commander of a platoon of condemned Army convicts who are offered one last chance to redeem themselves in ''The Dirty Dozen.'' His other well-known movie roles include ''The Caine Mutiny'' (1954); ''The Iceman Cometh'' (1973); ''The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance'' (1962); ''Raintree County'' (1957); ''Paint Your Wagon'' (1969); ''Bad Day at Black Rock'' (1955); ''Donovan's Reef'' (1963); ''The Wild One'' (1954)' ''The Glory Brigade'' (1953); ''Ship of Fools'' (1965), and ''Eight Iron Men'' (1952). His most recent movie role was in 1985 in ''Gorky Park.'' In all, Mr. Marvin acted in 56 movies. In 1979, Mr. Marvin was the respondent in a landmark case that constituted the first legal test of ''palimony,'' or the reciprocal property rights of unmarried couples. He was sued by Michele Triola Marvin, a former singer with whom he had lived for six years. Ms. Marvin, who on her own had legally changed her last name from Triola, contended in her suit that she and Mr. Marvin had an agreement to share the property acquired during the relationship. She sought half of the $3.6 million that he had earned while they lived together, and $100,000 for the loss of her career. In April 1979, after a sensational 11-week trial in which a number of Hollywood celebrities testified in support of Mr. Marvin, Judge Arthur K. Marshall of California Superior Court rejected the claims of Ms. Marvin. The judge said he found no legal basis for her contention that she had either an expressed or implicit contract with Mr. Marvin to share his assets. The judge did, however, award her $104,000, the equivalent of $1,000 a week for two years, which was equal to th

Starring Raymond Burr
Raymond Burr, Actor, 76, Dies; Played Perry Mason and Ironside Raymond Burr, the burly, impassive actor who played the defense lawyer Perry Mason and the police detective Robert T. Ironside on television, died on Sunday at his ranch in Dry Creek Valley, near Healdsburg, Calif. He was 76. The cause was kidney cancer, said his doctor, Paul J. Marguglio. Mr. Burr started his career playing Hollywood heavies, most notably in Alfred Hitchcock's film "Rear Window." But he captivated television audiences with his portrayal of the Los Angeles trial lawyer Perry Mason, who won his first case in September 1957 and continued an unbroken winning streak that lasted nine seasons. Gravelly-voiced and unrelentingly stern, with a habit of exhaling resonantly through his nostrils, Mason got to the bottom of seemingly unfathomable mysteries every week, relying on the private investigator Paul Drake (played by William Hopper) and his faithful secretary, Della Street (Barbara Hale), to defeat the hapless prosecutor Hamilton Burger (William Talman). To pull off his last-minute courtroom triumphs, Mason often broke down witnesses on the stand or produced surprise witnesses that left the prosecution's case a shambles. One year after "Perry Mason" went off the air in September 1966, Mr. Burr stepped into the role of Robert Ironside, the chief of detectives for the San Francisco police department, who worked from a wheelchair after a would-be assassin's bullet left him paralyzed from the waist down. A Peripatetic Youth Mr. Burr was born in New Westminster, British Columbia, not far from Vancouver. His father was a hardware dealer, and his mother was a pianist and music teacher. Soon after he was born, the family moved to China and lived there for five years. When Raymond was 6, his parents divorced, and his mother took him to live in a hotel that her father owned in Vallejo, Calif. He attended the San Rafael Military Academy but dropped out at 13 to help support his family in the Depression. After a year working on a cattle and sheep ranch, he returned to school, but he quit before completing junior high school. After leaving school, he ran a weather station for the Forest Service and for a time worked in China, where his family owned property. He took extension courses, taught school, worked as a traveling salesman and wrote short stories. Mr. Burr made his stage debut at 12 with a Vancouver stock company, and throughout his teen-age years he picked up occasional acting work. In 1941, he made his Broadway debut in the musical "Crazy With the Heart." He also appeared in "The Duke in Darkness" on Broadway in 1944 before entering the Navy. Mr. Burr left the Navy in 1946 weighing nearly 350 pounds, and he immediately landed work in films as a villain. His first screen role, in "Without Reservations" (1946), starring John Wayne and Claudette Colbert led to steady work. In all, he appeared in 90 films. He first made an impression in "Pitfall" (1948), a suspense film starring Dick Powell, and won critical praise as the district attorney who hounds Montgomery Clift in "A Place in the Sun" (1951) and as the murderer in "Rear Window" (1954). One of his most unusual credits was an appearance in the first Godzilla film as a journalist who relays an account of Godzilla's rampage. His other films include "San Quentin" (1947), "The Adventures of Don Juan" (1948), "A Cry in the Night" (1956) and "Desire in the Dust" (1960). More recently, he appeared in "Airplane II: The Sequel"(1982) and "Delirious" (1985). Landing His Biggest Role In 1957, Mr. Burr was chosen over contenders including Fred MacMurray and Efrem Zimbalist Jr. to play the starring role in "Perry Mason," a CBS-TV series based on the mystery novels of Erle Stanley Gardner. In the 1960-61 season, the show was among the five most popular on television, and Mr. Burr twice won Emmy Awards for best actor in a series. Even after the show was canceled, Mason lived on in syndication. Mr. Burr recreated the role in "The New Perry Mason" in 1973*1, and in a television movie, "Perry Mason Returns," that was the second-highest-rated television movie in the 1985-86 season. It led to 25 more Perry Mason vehicles. After appearing as Ironside on NBC from 1967 to 1975, Mr. Burr played a journalist in "Kingston: Confidential" in 1977. The next year, he appeared in the mini-series "Centennial," and in the late 80's he also was one of the hosts of "Unsolved Mysteries." In August, he completed location work in Denver for "The Case of the Killer Kiss," a Perry Mason television movie. According to the reference work Current Biography, Mr. Burr was married three times*2. His first wife, Annette Sutherland, an Englishwoman, was killed in 1943 when the plane in which she was traveling wa
