Dim the the lights. A legend has died. Marlon Brando passed on today.
Arguably the greatest actor who ever lived, none can argue that he influenced a generation. And I’m not just talking about actors such as James Dean, Robert DeNiro, or Johnny Depp. Brando literally influenced a generation of kids who wanted to rebel… and Brando continued to rebel throughout his life.
If all you know about Marlon Brando was that he played Superman‘s father or was pretty strange when interviewed by Larry King. If you only know Brando from impressionists doing their take on Brando as Vito Corleone from The Godfather then you owe it to yourself to check him out.
Yeah, he was cool in Apocalypse Now… and you may have heard how strange he was in The Island of Dr. Moreau [both on and off the set]…
…but if you want to see Brando at his best then check out On the Waterfront… A Streetcar Named Desire… Guys and Dolls [he could do it all!]…One Eyed Jacks [which he also directed]… Mutiny on the Bounty… and of course… The Godfather.
Marlon Brando was indeed the man. Our prayers go out to his family, friends and fans.
Now I think I’ll dim the lights and put on a classic Brando movie…
