Newt's movie review

Brando was cast for his biceps and ability to sweat on command. He has evidently _never_ been able to speak properly.

Leigh's ability to provide a vacant expression followed by fear won her this role (altho... she was bloody brilliant).

Malden as protagonist??? Definitely the TSN turning point!
