Mourning the Don

Marlon Brando 1924-2004

I'm not qualified to write a retrospective of Marlon Brando's career. But between "On the Waterfront" and "The Godfather," to me there was, and is, no greater actor. His short part a few years back in "The Freshman," a comic reprise to "The Godfather," warmed my heart.

So long, you crazy old coot. To say you will be missed is so weak a line as to be almost sacrilegious.

It was always a thrill to see Brando act. Good or bad, he was great. As the Godfather, he gave men lines we still use in our life and in the Freshman, you admired that he didn't mind parodying one of his most famous roles. God speed.
