At the time even [[TennesseeWilliams Tennessee]] agreed that Brando's appearance in the theater was unique and there was no way that Jessica Tandy could compete with him. She seemed all [[HystericalWoman tics and mannerisms]] while he was the [[RatedMForManly male principle writ large]].

->''"Almost any Creator/BillMurray role fits on this list, but ''{{Film/Ghostbusters}}'' is one of the most lovable movies ever made, and 90 percent of that is Bill Murray's fault. If you actually look at the character of Pete Venkman, he's a borderline sex offender who uses electrical torture as a punchline. He tells presumably-dicked representatives of the Environmental Protection Agency that they have no dicks. He mocks the spirits of the dead in a world where he knows they can hear him. If Bill Murray wasn't a comic genius we'd probably be asking why someone made a movie out of some script they found on death row."''
