That's the title of the article which isn't too bad on Brando's importance
in the acting profession, which he liked to put down as pretentious and
overblown as the article truly notes.  But it doesn't talk at all about his
left-leaning politics, including his strong support for Native Americans in
and out of Hollywood (leading to a famous Academy Awards moment).  Also, it
doesn't mention his overtly political roles in "Burn" under Costa Garvas or
Palcy's "A Dry White Season", which were heartfelt and excellent.  Nor his
terse comment when asked about the meaning of "The Godfather":  "It's about
capitalism."  He was great.
