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?"

You're probably familiar with the current crop of #Me Too movement suspects and convicted perpetrators. 

Cosby300To mention just a few:  Major indie studio movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's trial for alleged sexual abuses of dozens of female complainants is coming up soon.  Excellent actor Kevin Spacey, facing charges for allegedly groping a teenage boy, has seen his "House of Cards" crumble.  And, sadly, Bill Cosby, formerly known as "America's Dad," is doing 3-to-10 in the slammer after being convicted on three counts of sexual assault.

What about those I'm calling the #Them Too perps?  I had a great time over at HarborChase of the Park Cities retirement community (in the Dallas area) recently with my Movie Memories presentation titled "Hollywood's Hot Movie Scandals."
