    Big loss in Hollywood, always enjoyed his work. The Godfather trilogy were the first VHS tapes I owned, have them on DVD now. He was a terrific actor, and played a lot of very memorable parts.

    Truly one of the best ever, maybe the best American actor of all time. A great loss.

    We won't see many like him. Just reading about how he went about his parts, how he created the characters and often the dialogue, was a look into someone who had a genius for acting.

    He will be missed.

    This is a shame. He was a great person, and actor. I have a horrible feeling that Tibs is going to have something inflammatory and useless to say.

    Wow... what a great loss. It was good to see him in The Score with Deniro and Norton a few years ago. One of the best.... RIP.

    strange man and horrible leader of a family....probably a major result of his own upbringing....dragging your mom out of bars has to create some scars...

    as an actor....the best our country has produced.....partly b/c he bucked the establishment and did it his way....he took a dump on hollywood....but was soooo good that they still begged for him.....

    brando was to american acting what kerouac was to american writing.....the two greatest american artists of our time....

    brando was to american acting what kerouac was to american writing.....the two greatest american artists of our time....

    Deniro and Hemingway.

    The fatass should just be thankful he lived this long. they showed clips of an interview with larry king from 1994 and he looked ready to kneel over. RIP Jor-El.

    while deniro is a great actor....no way do i doubt that....i prefer brando..but its like choosing between jlo or alyssa milano on this one.....now kerouac i am huge on....his works took the stick out of america's 1940 and early 50's ass and moved people to live......and live....we have kerouac to thank for the acceptance of premarital/free sex that we all love today....

    here is why i put brando and kerouac together....spontaneous prose.....kerouac sat down at a typewritter with a roll of uncut paper and just started banging the keys...spontaneous prose....the closest you can get to being inside the head of the author...

    brando did the same with acting....he REFUSED to memorize lines....as was customary at the time....because he felt it led to a "canned" performance....instead Brando simply interpreted the purpose and feeling of a scene and went with it....flinging it....letting the true performance come out....

    so thats why i put those two together....

    Uh, yes, very insightful. Given the fact that I linked his message in my reply, indicates I was purposefully being a "lab rat to the feeder bar". But, I guess that joke was beyond the intellectual ability of some to comprehend.
