What peers remember about Brando



The Associated Press

"Marlon would hate the idea of people chiming in to give their comments about his death. All I'll say is that it makes me sad he's gone."

- Francis Ford Coppola, director of The Godfather

"He influenced more young actors of my generation than any actor. Anyone who denies this never understood what it was all about."

- James Caan, friend and co-star in The Godfather

"America has lost its leading film star. He was the best. As far as I'm concerned, he was also a very good friend. The world will miss him."

- Friend and actor James Garner

"I feel a certain sadness at the loss of one of America's greatest actors. It is said no price too high does an original bear, and Marlon Brando was a quintessential original."

- Robert Evans, head of Paramount Pictures during production of The Godfather

"I always found him very quiet. He was not someone I ever got close to. Mean, moody and magnificent - that comes to mind."

- British publicist Max Clifford, who worked for Brando in the 1980s
