antiTainment NEWS: Marlon Brando 1924-2004
The world lost one of the greats on Thursday when Brando passed away in Los Angeles. Brando died of lung failure at 6:30 p.m. Thursday evening at the UCLA Medical Center. Since his passing, Hollywood stars have gone on record singing his praises but as Francis Ford Coppola said Friday, "Marlon would hate the idea of people chiming in to give their comments about his death. All I'll say is that it makes me sad he's gone."
So out of respect we will not post such comments here, but the best testament to the man can be found at the local video store. He left behind a body of work that many actors strive to match but fall far short of.
AP reports that the funeral will be a private affair, according to Brando’s attorney David J. Seeley.
As people reflect on Brando’s career in
the coming weeks, we are left with one of his most ironic and memorable
line, "I coulda been a contender ... I coulda been somebody ..."
No one can dispute that in life Brando went far beyond being just somebody.
