My first viewing of this masterpiece. Acted to perfection by every damn cast member. From the second the film started I was hooked, fully engrossed in the story.

"“Brando makes choices in his performance that are the best…ever made on screen in their subtleties and internalizations…. I don’t think there’s a better example of chemistry in cinema history than Eva Marie Saint and Marlon Brando in this movie…, where he puts her glove on…or the kiss that they share in the apartment.” -Drew Barrymore “I don’t think anybody in film ever portrayed angst, confusion, and torment more honestly, without grandstanding, than Marlon Brando.

" Notes: Even though Marlon Brando’s career has always been rather inconsistent, I have always been a huge fan of the guy and since this flick is considered as one of his classics, I was quite eager to check it out.
