Funny, I was just watching this last week for acting purposes…
But since Quincy Jones felt the need to throw the 1960s under the bus this week, let me post this…
More serious people, who are more directly affected by homophobia than I, can speak to some of the uglier comments around Q’s revelations about Marlon’s bisexuality. Brando was my acting idol when I started, so in my own research, that aspect of his life I knew about years ago.
The name dropping was new information though!
Aside from that (and on a much lighter note), among film geeks, among actors, a phrase I’ve heard more than once is, ‘I don’t swing that way, but young Marlon Brando in peak physical condition in ‘Streetcar’…I understand.’
Next Best Picture review Sunday night.
