Celebrity Death Train

Vito Corelone. Stanley Kowalski. Terry Malloy. Sky Masterston. Colonel Walter E. Kurtz. Dr. Moreau. And yes, Jor-El.
Marlon Brando has passed away at age 80. It’s shocking because he always seemed so fit and full of vitality when he was mumbling his way through crappy roles for the past twenty years. Does early brilliance forgive later creative stupor? I think it probably does.

“And maybe Marlon Brando will be there by the fire.
He’ll sit and talk of Hollywood and the good things there for hire…”

-Neil Young, “Pocahontas”

Girl: “What’re you rebelling against, Johnny?”
Johnny: “Whaddya got?”
The Wild One
