Blind Item #8 - Reader Blind

Many decades ago, arguably the best version of this particular work by a permanent A++ writer whose authorship has come into question was made.

It starred this permanent A+ Oscar nominated/ Oscar winning actor who would have sex with anyone - Man, woman, you name it.  It also starred this older Oscar nominated character actor who played the role that gave the film its name.

Also in the film was this Oscar nominated foreign born actor who was probably A in his time and had a very recognizable speaking style. He was in a lot of classic films.  This actor smoked a pipe and during shooting breaks would look for places in the large set where he could smoke quietly. However, he gave this up as one time he came across the A+ actor and the older actor having sex in what they thought was a remote corner.

I think Brando won for streetcar, so Williams is the author but not sure hes been questioned for plagiarism

sandybrook said...

John Gielgood and James Mason were also in Julius Caesar

+1 Sandybrook for Julius Caesar

cheesegrater15 said...

I bet John Gielgud was the pipe smoker catching Brando smoking Calhern's pipe. Giggity.

Hamlet (1964)
Author- William Shakespeare
Older Oscar nominated character actor- Richard Burton (Hamlet)
Permanent A+ Oscar nominated/ Oscar winning actor- Hume Cronyn

Can't figure the third one though. John Cullum is in the cast, and he's won or been nominated for a bunch of awards, but no Oscar.

IndieRaga said...

Is smoking pipe a euphemism for something here!
Who's the older hag?

Moose said...

Gielgud would have joined in.

James Mason was the pipe smoker, so its the 1953 Julius Caeser with Brando and Calhern as the actors caught in flagrent delicto.

IndieRaga said...

flagrent delicto.....lolzzz
You so funny !

Brayson87 said...

So what did they use for lube back then?

Humor Me said...

This is "Julius Caesar". 1953

J said...

William Shakespeare from Stratford-Upon-Avon wrote Shakespeare's works.

SeijnSei said...

Brando. The Godfather??

longtimereader said...

Shakespeare's authorship has been called into question by the kind Paedo-posh types who can't conceive a small town Tanner's son from the West Midlands could write such epics.

Brayson87 said...

"character actor who played the role that gave the film its name." At least we know the film has to have a character in the title.

Brayson87 said...

It is fun to trigger some people by talking random smack about Shakespeare, the way their heads explode you'd think you were knocking religion to a fanatic.

Zebra Seasoning said...

JC is a better guess. Well done.

Derp said...

Butter, motherfucker! This is Brando. You gotta ask? Wow, just wow.

Paul Bearer said...

James Mason was the guy who found Brando and Calhern going at it.

Mason had a distinctive speaking style!

momo said...

Bacon. Bacon wrote everything from the KJV to Shakespeare. Pretty much created the language as we know it. Get up to speed.

kiki71 said...

Neither Streetcar nor Waterfront got its name from one of its lead character. Julius Caesar makes the most sense to me.

Brayson87 said...

@Derp, Haha it's so obvious they even put it in the name. Plus it's edible so would have been kosher for tossing and clean up. Eventually Brando got too fat for f*cking and just stuck to the eating.

Brayson87 said...

@momo, But what of Edward de Vere?

Sunkist said...

The writer has to be Shakespeare because there are several docs and the movie 'Anonymous' that pretty much prove there was no Shakes-Spear that was a writer during this Elizabethen time. Probably Brando

Unknown said...

Mmmmmm....bacon!
🥓🥓🥓🥓🥓🥓

Unknown said...

Did they use more than a knob?

Unknown said...

Brando was good
But he did not write any of Shakespeare's stuff!

PattiJoy said...

@longtimereader your explanation of the bias against Shakespeare's authorship makes the most sense of all the theories. Nobody does classism better than bonny England.

Pig Tracks said...

Hmm. Louis Calhern died while filming Teahouse of the August Moon, which starred Marlon Brando.

Rosemary Young said...

I'm just LOLing at William Shakespeare being described as a "permanent A++ writer."

TKAM:

Harper Lee. Truman Capote was the authentic author.

Gregory Peck
Frank Overton
Robert Duvall

HouellebecqGurl said...

Harper Lee's editor wrote most of TKAM. Which is a shitty book/movie.
Shakespeare wrote his own shit, people are navel gazing assholes.

The movie is Julius Caesar, obvi Brando for the serial fucker.

Alana said...

@Rabbit Who was the pipe smoker of the three?

Mary Lamb said...

An old friend of mine, sadly now gone, knew Marlon and said he was gay and that everyone knew it. Didn't stop him from having a slew of children. I'm guessing he was sexually fluid.

Sd Auntie said...

Bisexual. Not gay. He has 10 children with women. Last one with housekeeper who popped out 4 before he croaked. Gay men do not fuck women on a ling term basis but bi do.

Boo Kitty said...

It's an actual term.

Brand in Julius Caesar.

I just don't buy a lot of these "reader blinds."

Marlon Brando in Julius Caesar.

I really don't buy a lot of these "reader blinds."

shakey said...

Edward De Vere was nobility, and at the time it was considered scandalous for them to frequent (let alone write for) the theatre as it was for low, common folk.
