How sexually attractive was Brando at this point -- no longer young, but not yet fat -- to those who are sexually attracted to men? Anecdotally speaking, of course.

More butter, dear?

Mr. Fiore:

I can't comment on mister Brando's attractiveness [to anyone] at that time -- although I honestly think that he's dreamy, all these photos considered -- But Ms. Schneider was absolutely ruthless in dismissing him sexually. When asked about the nude scenes, and whether he was attractive, she witheringly went off at length about him having no sexual attractiveness because, he was, after all, fifty at the time. . . .


I wish I had that damned interview -- the quotes are better than my memory. . . .

From the So Crazy It Must Be True Dept.: When the Nova Scotia Amusements Regulation Board attempted to ban screenings of Last Tango in Paris, it was struck down using a Canadian legal defense known as "the Margarine Reference" which had nothing to do with the movie, but referred to a separate case where butter-making dairies tried to have margarine kept off the market with false claims that it was an unhealthful product. Essentially it was settled not on grounds of censorship, but whether the government can make a criminal ruling on something that is a legally permitted enterprise. Or something like that.

You can't make up this kind of stuff:
