This Xmas my present to myself is - The Marlon Brando Collection. Am getting it tomorrow and I can't wait to see -

  • Mutiny on the Bounty (have seen it once only). I love this film and it is the best of the Bounty movies by far. brando is exquisite in this film.
  • Julius Caesar - an all time classic with one of the greatest screen moments, the Friends, Romans speech by Brando. (again have seen it once only)
  • Reflections in a Golden Eye - Never seen it, from what i have heard it boasts of one of Brando's great acts. Elizabeth Taylor to boot, and under the helm of John Huston. Will be a great treat.
  • Teahouse of the August Moon - Brando as a japaneese who totally hoodwinks Glen Ford in a delightful comedy. (again have seen it once only)
  • The Formula - Brando in 3 scenes pitted against another great talent in George C. Scott. The film has been universally panned, but still want to see him, deliver the great line that i have heard so much about - We are the Arabs.

It is definitely going to be a great new year for this brandofan.

Hey KBR, Happy New Year!

Brando is GREAT in Reflections in a Golden Eye. In truth, there is no word that can do justice to his work in that movie. Sheer genius; you have to see it to believe it!
