Super-8 versions of all of these films, plus his hobo epic Emperor of the North and the gritty Western The Professionals, are screened from 8 p.m. to midnight as part of the Super-8 Lee Marvin Movie Madness at the Way Out Club (2525 South Jefferson Avenue; In addition, a full episode of Marvin's now rarely seen police drama M Squad will be shown on the 16mm projector, and Lee Marvin trivia with prizes rounds out the evening.
