Marlon Brando in "The Wild One." (Columbia Pictures)

An enormously gifted stage actor-turned-film actor, Marlon Brando loomed large in Hollywood, both in accolades and on the scale.

He was the star of everything from "On the Waterfront" to "The Godfather." But what was the man behind the icon like?
 
In this presentation using PowerPoint images and film clips and lasting a little over an hour, we'll take a close look at the man who once said, "All I want to be is normally insane."
 
A rebel on screen and off, Brando uttered one of my favorite movie lines in the classic "The Wild One" of 1953.
 
His character was asked, "Hey Johnny, what are you rebelling against?" 
 
His answer:  "What have you got?"

Me, too.  I can remember when a half gallon of Blue Bell was $2.99, or on sale for 3-for-$5.  That's at least a dollar less than what they're getting for a pint now.  If my math is right, there are four pints in a half gallon.  Shouldn't a pint be about $2.25?  Of course not.  That would make too much sense, and, apparently, way too little cents.

What, that's not what shocked you?  Must be the Halloween candy.  The best bargain in town this week has to be leftover Halloween candy.  One of those giant gut-buster bags of bite-sized morsels such as BabyRuths, Whoppers, KitKats and Butterfingers, my personal favorite, are marked down to half-price now.  That means only 25 or 30 bucks a bag.
