With which male co star did Brando have the best chemistry??
The contenders: - Karl Malden - On the Waterfront, Anthony Quinn - Viva Zapata, Red Buttons - Sayonara, David Niven - Bed Time Story, Yul Brynner - Morituri, Al Pacino - The Godfather, Jack Nicholson - The Missouri Breaks, Mathew Broederick - The Freshman, Jhonny Depp - Don Juan DeMarco.
The interesting part is that 3 out of the above won Oscars as best supporting actors in the mentioned films opposite Brando.
My take would be Broderick - The Freshman as they both seemed like they were having lots of fun. Liked each and the fun element showed up on the screen.
Male bonding between a 66 year old and a 28 year old. All that in the backdrop of a spoof on the godfather...wow!!

Have said this before and will say it again, for those getting a sense of deja vu, tough!!
Reclusive Brando is now becoming very visible Brando. Bio Pic being planned (Hopkins to star as the older Brando), his last film back on track - Citizen Brando and all the major Studios are issuing DVDs of his films. And to top that there is going to be another auction of his memorabilia.
Now what am I looking most forward to is purchasing the DVD of BURN and reliving Brando's self professed greatest performance. I saw it when I was about 18 and was blown over; want to see if it is true that BURN just gets better with time.
Gillio Pontercorvo, Ennio Morricone and BRANDO, 3 masters, 1 great motion picture.
