(Circa 1973) I would never have known or realised at that young age who he really was. I just remember our family vacationing over the Christmas Holiday's in Big Bear California, it was always quite snowy in Big Bear during the winter. We went out for breakfast at the local "Log Cabin" restaurant and there was Marlon Brando, family and all, having breakfast. I was really too young to understand (about ten years old) who this great man was, all I knew is he was a great movie star, a movie legend. He left a $10.00 tip on the table for the waitress, and we were in aww.
I'm now 45 years of age, just watched the Godfather I and II for the first time in my life.
