A 49 year old Marlon Brando on The Dick Cavett Show, June 12, 1973.
We couldn't survive a second if we weren't able to act. Acting is a survival mechanism. It's a social unguent and it's a lubricant. We act to save our lives, actually, every day. People lie constantly every day by not saying something that they think, or saying something that they didn't think. Or showing something that they don't feel ... If you are working for an ad agency, and you hate the guy, the idea man, the boss, and you know that every time he comes in with some impossible notion, something that really makes you gag when you drive home on the freeway, you know damn well that you are not going to get a raise, to move to a different position if you don't say "Leonard, I think that is terrific. It's just beautiful" And you even lean forward and put your elbows on your knees to show enthusiasm and you get a face for it, and you do it day after day after day to in order to just survive at your job.
