MGA 1600, 1961
The cat held by Marlon Brando in the opening scene was a stray the actor found while on the lot at Paramount, and was not originally called for in the script. So content was the cat that its purring muffled some of Brando’s dialogue, and, as a result, most of his lines had to be looped.
I met this crew of young skaters recently on a walk through the old neighborhood. They were eager to show off their homemade skate park they had spent the day building. Their last oasis of skate was torn down after it became a favorable place to sleep and serve dope. Without any deterrence, they moved on and found new materials to work with. The resilience, dedication, and commitment of these boys put a smile on my heart. They just want to skate; not vandalize or destroy, just enjoy their neighborhood with their friends, and skate. The human spirit ceases to amaze. If you ever find yourself at a point of loss, desperation, or despair, talk to a child who still has that light in their eyes and they will show you why you never have a reason to give up.
