Culver City, CA: Columbia, 1966. Vintage borderless photograph from the set of the 1966 Western, showing director Richard Brooks and crew getting ready to shoot a close up of actor Lee Marvin letting loose with a machine gun.
Based on the 1964 novel "A Mule for the Marquesa" by Frank O'Rourke, about four men hired to by a wealthy Texan to rescue his wife from a Mexican revolutionary, only to discover the job in not exactly what it seems. A sometimes overlooked and underrated entry into the Western canon, despite being nominated for three Academy Awards, including Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.
