Are you saddened by Marlon Brando`s death?
(CNN) -- Marlon Brando, the stage and screen actor whose performances in ``A Streetcar Named Desire,`` ``On the Waterfront`` and ``The Godfather`` earned him plaudits as one of the greatest actors of all time, has died, his attorney said. He was 80.

Brando died in Los Angeles. The cause of death was not revealed, but he had suffered from congestive heart failure and was overweight.

The actor was perhaps the most influential of his generation, noted Bob Thomas of The Associated Press.

Brando shot to fame in 1947 with his groundbreaking performance in Tennessee Williams` play ``A Streetcar Named Desire`` as the brutal, animalistic Stanley Kowalski.

Brando, a devotee of the Method, gave a raw, vital performance under Elia Kazan`s direction that had critics swooning. Using the technique, fostered by Russian director Konstantin Stanislavsky and popularized at Lee Strasberg`s Actors Studio, actors such as Brando drew on their own psychology and experience in creating roles.

Not really. I never cared for his acting to be honest.

No not really.

Nah. He had lived a very full life and I assume he was ready to go.

Well as your favorite movie has "Tom Green" in the title I'm not surprised, gregmitch. Sorry, that was mean. Go see "Apocalypse Now" or "Godfather." I would suggest "On the Waterfront," but I doubt it's up your alley.

I'd agree with unhailey. However it is sad he can't make more films. I enjoyed his acting and many times picked very good projects. (I couldn't imagine someone else as Kurtz in "Apocalypse Now!")

Kurtz scared the hell out of me. Other than Apocalypse, I haven't seen any other Brando movies... though, Godfather might soon be rented. I do know that with his death, another bit of old Hollywood has slipped away.

That makes me sad.

Not especially. Sorry.
