What Oscar has joined together, let no exhibitor break asunder
The Lee Marvin double feature from hell!
First, Lee at his drunken, Oscar-winning laziest in Cat Ballou, followed by a slob-turn as the kaput baseball player (and only spark of life) in a well-intentioned garbage scow of a gabfest directed by the never more ambitious Stash Kramer.
From where I sit, Ship of Fools is a much richer source of amusement.
