Stan Lee at home in the early 1950s. “Always wrote standing up—good for the figure—and always faced the sun—good for the suntan!”


Damn.

  1. I wonder what other habits are employed by writers? Some claim they write better when facing a certain direction, or they have to wear certain clothing, certain times of day, etc.

  2. Lee’s stated age and the “early ’50s” date are obviously wrong on that picture. The beard sideburns and sunglasses are a dead giveaway the photo dates to the ’60s. Probably the late ’60s by which time John Romita, Roy Thomas, and others have said Lee only came into the Marvel offices roughly three days a week.

  3. Stan has said he typed standing up because he feared getting a “fat belly” if he sat while he typed all day.

    And I agree the photo is probably from the late ’60s.

  4. “Stan didn’t look like a beatnik in the 1950s.”

    No, Stan looked like Jack Lemmon in “The Apartment” in the ’50s.
