I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender...

As you've no doubt heard, Marlon Brando, who brought Method acting to American cinema and made actors like Cary Grant look like marionettes, has died. Sadly, many people know Brando as much for the bizarre behavior, tragic personal life and box-office clunkers that marked the latter part of his life as they do for one-of-a-kind performances like "On the Waterfront." As for his turn in "The Godfather" what more can be said?

Before Brando, actors on screen looked like they were merely...well, acting.
