Trivia: Cat Ballou

  • Acting for Two: Lee Marvin plays the washed-up gunfighter, Kid Shelleen, and the hired killer Tim Strawn.
  • Playing Against Type: Lee Marvin in a comic and heroic role as the alcoholic Kid Shelleen. His other, smaller, role, the evil Tim Strawn, is Type Casting. Probably both because of and in spite of this trope, he won an Oscar for the role(s).
