    May Marlon Brando rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. He certainly managed to live a long full life.

    He once said: "The only thing an actor owes his public is not to bore them." Only if more would follow his lead.

    I think I can remember a Trivial Pursuit™ question asking what Marlon Brando had as his occupation on his passport; and the answer was 'Shepherd' ....

    That, and Streetcar Named Desire, I have absolute respect for him.

    :(

    Thanks for the URL.

    I had not heard this.

    Unfortunate for someone who was such a great actor and inspiration to others.

    I remember a couple of years ago I saw a trailer for a movie with Edward Norton, Robert De Niro and Brando and made a bet that the movie meant he would be dead in a few more years, guess I was right but I don't really feel like collecting on it.

    Well, he entertained us in The Godfather, Guys and Dolls, The Freshman,
    Apocalypse Now, and a ton more great classics. I am actually glad he lived to be eighty, considering his health and weight.

    Rest in Peace.

    Peace!

    The name of the movie was "The Score".

    I actually met Mr. Brando at his home the week he was leaving to film that movie. My boss and I sat and chatted with him in front of his computers for a few hours. He was a very interesting man, and quite a joker. He was constantly giving us a hard time about things, and just having fun. I don't know that he was in debt, he was having his home remodeled when I was there. It just all seems more surreal, now that he has passed away. It is just a great memory I will always have.
