ON THIS DAY : Pocket Money Released, 1972
Released on this day 1972, ‘Pocket Money’ starring Paul Newman and Lee Marvin.
This photograph used as the publicity still and also appeared on the jacket of O'Neill's 2003 compilation coffee-table book "Celebrity".
In the book O'Neill recounted how when he arrived on the set to shoot his publicity stills, Lee Marvin was hungover and in a foul mood. Most of the production personnel were steering clear of him. When O’Neill gingerly approached Marvin and introduced himself, Marvin asked, "Are you English?"
What O'Neill didn't know at the time was that Marvin was a lifelong Anglophile--he LOVED the British. After that brief encounter, Marvin's mood changed and, according to O'Neill, he couldn't have been more cooperative for the rest of his assignment.
