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?"

John Wayne about to hitch a ride to fame as The Ringo Kid in "Stagecoach" (1939).

So what's your favorite Marion Robert Morrison movie?

We're talking the late, great "everyman" movie star John Wayne, of course.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance starring The Duke, Jimmy Stewart, Vera Miles and Lee Marvin as the title character is my favorite, Pilgrim.   That heartfelt-yet-hard hitting Western of love, unrequited and otherwise, giant pan-fried steaks and Marvin as quite possibly one of the Top 5 big screen baddies of all time, only edges out True Grit by an eyepatch or two.
