Never confuse the size of your paycheck with the size of your talent. - Marlon Brando

I never met a dame yet that didn't know if she was good-looking or not without being told, and there's some of them that give themselves credit for more than they've got. - Marlon Brando, A streetcar named Desire
Since beginning my Netflix account last year, I have a whole bevy of movies available to me at the click of my mouse and a days mail. Lately, my youngest daughter and I have begun watching some of the old black and whites. She even received a few musicals for Christmas.
Last night, I watched a movie I have been wanting to see since I was about 15 or so. Our family had just signed up for cable television and on Saturday and Sunday afternoons my mother and I would settle in and watch movies. One day, she was watching an old black and white (which in my teen years was a bore!) so I had only watched a few minutes then headed off for more exciting teenage things such as flipping through a teen beat or something.
But that small glimpse of the movie stayed with me. I later heard about what a great icon Marlon Brando was, and heard that the movie itself was a classic!
I had to see it!
And the verdict? Not a bad show at all, interesting, great writing.
But- Brando! oh my!!!
(although I cannot find a picture that is not copyright)
He was definitely a man's man. I realize that this man could be my grandfather. And I realize too that he is no longer living.
But that didn't stop my heart from going pitter patter.


  1. Great blog. Welcome to MBC!

  2. So I am dying to know what film it was. Are you gonna tell us?

    I too love all the old movies and there is something special about some of the old black and white movies. Like there was a lot more meaning and feeling making up for the lack of color and special effects.

    Have a great day!
