Based on Brando himself, that examine advanced from deeply auditing his characters to not memorizing his traces as a result of … effectively, that is not what folks do once they discuss. They do not know what they’ll say prematurely, so even essentially the most nuanced reciting of scripted phrases felt unfaithful to his ears. In Stefan Kanfer’s e book “Someone: The Reckless Life and Outstanding Profession of Marlon Brando” he mentioned the cadence of such rote memorization appeared like “Mary Had A Little Lamb” to his ear. He continued:

“In bizarre life, folks seldom know precisely what they’ll say once they open their mouths and begin to specific a thought. They’re nonetheless pondering, and the truth that they’re searching for phrases reveals on their faces. They pause for an on the spot to seek out the best phrase, search their minds to compose a sentence, then specific it.”

This brought on a bit of little bit of fear for “The Godfather” director Francis Ford Coppola, not a lot that Brando could be dangerous within the position as a result of he was utilizing “fool playing cards,” however that he’d encourage the remainder of the forged to do the identical. Seems he did not have a lot to fret about on that entrance as the remainder of the forged have been more than pleased to do it the old style manner and the outcome is likely one of the biggest movies of all time. So, whether or not Brando was utilizing naturalism as an excuse for laziness or if he was really on to one thing we’ll by no means know, however I suppose the proof is within the pudding.
