(This is an email I sent out the day after)

No one has ever mentioned his greatest performance. That was in "Sayonara" in which he had to act as if that dog he was provided as a leading lady was an immensely attractive woman.

There must be an interesting background story of her selection. Did the Japanese force her on them in exchange for filming in Japan? Did the producer or director get an absurd attachment to that troll?

The result was to turn American men off of Japanese women, and even Asian women, for a generation.

"What? That's a beauty in Asia? Forget it."

Whatever, Brando was magnificent.
