Before this year’s protest of the Oscars for race-based policies, there was Marlon Brando’s acceptance speech in 1973. A speech that he didn’t even give.
Here’s the tape — check it out.
Turner Classics showed this speech the other day. It was very moving.
Good to hear that it had a wider audience this year than we could ever give it. It’s a piece worth remembering.
Very happy that it’s still being spread around!
