To me, Lee Marvin is Parker (yes, I know, his name was Walker in the movie, but you know what I mean). That said, it's been a long, long time since I saw it as a late night movie, but I thought Robert Duvall was very good in the role. I remember his being a bit more personable than the Parker in the books, but he did a nice turn as a professional criminal. Man, I've got to dig through my tapes to see if I ever recorded that so I can see it again.

Wouldn't that be great, a DVD set of all of the Parker adaptations? Sorta speaking of which, anyone know a source for the early cut of Payback?
