The Don is dead

Any movie watcher will agree that the small byline in yesterday's The Hindu that announced the death of Marlon Brando was more startling than any of the headlines.

His portrayal of Don Vito Corleone in 'The Godfather' has to be my all-time favourite movie role. He was truly able to bring out the richness of Mario Puzo's character, and even add some facets of his own.

Don Corleone. Life is so beautiful.
