I was horrified to read this citation on IMDB whilst watching The Godfather for the nth time last night.
Marlon Brando is widely considered the greatest movie actor of all time, rivaled only by the more theatrically oriented Laurence Olivier in terms of esteem. Unlike Olivier, who preferred the stage to the screen, Brando concentrated his talents on movies after bidding the Broadway stage adieu in 1949, a decision for which he was severely criticized…
Anyway, I put my horror out there on Facebook to see if I was alone in feeling this was a ridiculous statement.
I was not.
200 or so Facebook comments later we’d drawn up a late Sunday night shortlist that stretches to a grand old baker’s dozen.
Now it’s your turn. Vote on who you really think is the greatest.
You can vote for three actors and in a week I’ll tell you the result. Please feel free to share this via your social media channels. The more the merrier
