The Sons of Lee Marvin

 I love the [‘improvised’ seems the wrong word] scene in Point Blank [a favourite film] where Marvin remains silent [unscripted and confused the actress, as it was supposed to be a dialogue]. But especially the ‘walk-over’ soundtrack scene which prefigures it. Footsteps? heartbeat? relentless thought pattern? slow applause from a non-audience? echoed metaphysical gunshots? literal dead man walking. Eponymous action. Doppelgänger.
