THE MARLON BRANDO QUOTE BELOW IS TAKEN FROM WIKIPEDIA's PAGE ON ELIA KAZAN: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elia_Kazan Marlon Brando, in his autobiography, goes into detail about the influence Kazan had on his acting: I have worked with many movie directors – some good, some fair, some terrible. Kazan was the best actors' director by far of any I've worked for... the only one who ever really stimulated me, got into a part with me and virtually acted it with me... he chose good
Conclusion: The acting ability was certainly not the MOVIE’S downfall. To make a fair assessment of this movie we must look at all aspects of the collaboration. This would lead us to evaluate the Directors, Producers and Screenwriters in turn. Richard Donner, Director/Producer, with such films as "Superman", "Free Willy", the "Lethal Weapon" series, and "The Toy" with Jackie Gleason (to name a just a few)

Throughout cinema’s storied history, we’ve come to know and love an array of grand achievements. The likes of On the Waterfront, The Godfather, and 2001: A Space Odyssey, have challenged, entertained, and touched us, spoken to our spirits. But while the beloved masterpieces of the silver screen will always be with us, there are countless other gems that few have ever seen or even heard of. For every Citizen Kane there is a Citizen Toxie; for every Lawrence of Arabia there is a Larry of Arabia. Enter the B movie.
As Ernie and his teammates had walked on the field the viewers of the game had begun to throw their pop-corn at them because the coach had allowed black athletes to join the team. The discrimination on that field was so strong that even the referees had denied many of the touchdowns that Ernie had attempted and achieved. The coaches were forced into subbing in Ernie and replacing him with a white player just so that the referees would accept the goal. In conclusion the discrimination Ernie Davis was forced to experience was quite cruel and inhumane. Everywhere he went he was attacked both mentally and
Marketing and Advertising So much to say, yet so little at all. This film is a surprise, as it should be. The title, in and of itself, causes attention and has a hint of being for a specific group of people. “Baadasssss!” (originally "How to Get the Man's Foot Outta Your Ass") stems from the son of Melvin Van Peebles, Mario on the complications of making a controversial film that needed to be made. All meta-ness aside (which could be an entire essay on this year’s syllabus), “Baadasssss!” is a well made film.
This movie was all about non-ethical and lazy like sayings, such as: “lets get it over quick” and “who really cares”. One guy, the 8th juror, did not agree with these saying’s and believed that a tough decision like this could not be decided in 5 minutes. He played a smart game, which we call ’playing devils advocate’. While the 11 men thought the person charged was guilty, this one juror thought differently. The 12 angry men were your average men, but each one had a different side.
Spike Lee's 1989 film “Do the Right Thing” had an interesting path towards realization. The film was released amidst fears that the movie would cause riots across the country, due to Spike Lee's decision to directly confront sensitive issues such as police brutality and racial tension. The movie was released without any outbursts of violence, which led Spike Lee to criticize the white community for not believing that a black audience could watch a fictional film and remain civil. When asked if Mookie did the “right thing” or not, Spike Lee replied that black viewers never ask him this question, only white viewers. Lee also added that white viewers will generally summarize the movie as a tale of the destruction of a local business, while black viewers
They feared Richard, and some of the white people felt it necessary to act out their racist feelings in order to cover up their fear. White coworkers beat Richard because his boss was kind to him. Richard later had to leave a good job because those racist co-workers would “kill” him. When the principal at Richard’s school had asked Richard to give a speech to a large audience of white and black people, Richard refused to read the principal’s prepared speech. By reading the principal’s speech, Richard was saying what the white power wanted him to say and to Richard this would be giving in to the very thing he hated so much.
In “The Pedestrian” by Ray Bradbury, the author uses original, creative and vivid imagery to show that being original, productive and creative can open up to more vivid and richer experiences, like walking and exploring new places rather than conforming to other people and not doing anything productive at all. The author also uses simple but powerful diction to foreshadow the sad ending of conforming to the law as stated by the police car rather than ignoring the police car, which can happen simply because of conforming to other people or things. This story is about a man arrested in one night for walking along the streets and not staying home like other people. The creative and vivid imagery that the author adds into this story gives a link between the loneliness of the streets and being the only one and original. Being original can be scary and can tempt you into conforming to something else, but one can become dull and boring from being forced by the society to conform to the rest of the people.
