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!Added 26 August 2002 at 12:30 AM
