Donald E. Westlake talking about the creation of Richard Stark and Stark’s iconic criminal Parker. You get a good sense of how Westlake/Stark wrote. He sets up a situation for his characters and then sees what happens.

Of the movie versions that Westlake talks about I agree, The Outfit is clearly the most faithful to Stark’s work. Lee Marvin is terrific, but he’s not as Parker as Robert Duvall.
