The Film Fatale

Scroll to Info & Navigation

According to Phil LaMarr, who played Marvin in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, the scene where his character is accidentally shot by John Travolta’s Vincent Vega was supposed to go a little bit differently. Originally, it was written that his character would be shot two times. Once in the throat by accident - in the film, Vince claims that Samuel L. Jackson’s Jules, who is driving the car, hit a bump, causing Vince’s gun to go off. And the second time, Vince shoots him in the head as an act of euthanasia, to put Marvin out of his misery. LaMarr recalls that during rehearsal of the scene, Travolta lamented having to kill Marvin, saying “The audience is gonna hate me.” He and Tarantino later decided that if Vincent had to actively kill Marvin, it would negatively affect the audience’s relationship with the character; that killing Marvin intentionally was crossing a line (x).
