I would have to agree with other reviewers that this film is rather corny, but for its time it was revolutionary. Throughout the film I must admit I had several laughs with lines such as, "You're too square" and "Anybody thinks their too good for me, I knock 'em over sometime". And phraseology such as "that's corn ball style". And Brando's faux black accent put me in mind of a 1970's blaxploitation movie, especially with the continual use of the word "jive". Nevertheless, Brando's deliverance is awesome, everything from his facial expressions and gestures to his timing is perfect. The man is stunning in this film. It's hard to take your eyes off of him, but then again, why would you want to?!! Highly recommended!
