Brando better than Brad..
Russkaya, like every girl of her generation, believes that nothing better than Brad Pitt has ever happened in cinema. She was transfixed, not believing her eyes, yesterday, when Marlon Brando invaded the screen in his first appearance on Elia Kazan's "A Streetcar Named Desire". She confessed, as the film went on, that Brando was really on a different league. Poor Brad, he tries so hard and then comes an old black and white copy of the "Streetcar" and an Oldie like Brando snatches the crown, the scepter and the gasping admiring smiles of young viewers.
(The film was part of a cycle of fashion-related films exhibited at the "Circulo de Belas Artes", in the Gran Via, to acknowledge the current Madrid Fashion shows ("Pasarela Cibeles").. Blanche Dubois as a fashion icon..Now, that is a refreshing new viewpoint on Uncle Tennessee's play!)
