Detroit News, March 21. 1931. I love the unvarnished candor of the language here. “Insane,” “mentally deranged”–you’d never see that in a newspaper today.
But let us consider: Who would be the cinematic dream team for this here scenario? I pick Lee Marvin, Warren Oates, Powers Boothe, Harry Dean Stanton, Elisha Cook Jr., Robert Blake and John Don Baker. Of course, they’d all be extremely dangerous, not just Lee Marvin (automatically the most dangerous man in any ward). But I invite you all to weigh in with your alternative draft choices.
