Marlon Brando on Rejecting His Oscar for 'The Godfather' The Dick Cavett Show



Marlon Brando is interesting as he talks about not accepting the award, about how he felt badly for Sacheen Littlefeather because they weren't listening to her. And that he boos she was getting were really directed at him and he felt badly she had hat happen to her
I like that he's given lots of time to collect his thoughts and just speak without being coaxed, or interrupted
His on Hollywood and its treatment of non-whites is quite good
I vaguely remember when it happened. I was almost 9
What I remember was that a Native American woman (referred to as Indian at the time) was on stage and there were boos from people in the audience. I didn't really grasp what was going on. At first I thought maybe she had come on to stage and grabbed the award before Brando could get on stage

1. I remember Brando being made fun of.

It was ugly. Turns out he was a better man than most. Thank you dear sir.
