In the documentary, they were saying that the response in the audience was of utter shock. People gasping, their eyes bugging out...
No one could believe it. It was a huge coup.

Funny, I just saw the speech on indian tv just 4 days ago. Marlon Brando rocks. The woman who spoke in his place is beautiful imo.

It was in a documentary about the way Indians where portrayed in cinema and they were showing how for the most part, they used white jewish men with a tan and a wig to portray them,

I was just watching a TCM mini doc on the oscars & their history and they had a protest/political segment that featured this, Jane Fonda and Michael Moore.

I also liked the POC segment, but it reminded me of how (eta: I ) hate that black people dog Hattie McDaniel and other performers of her time due to roles they had to take just to be seen. While it's not the proudest, we had to start somewhere and people like her suffered in their time so we have a chance and some semblance of a choice.

Also what a beautiful woman! Her voice is so soothing, even though it's tinged with sorrow.

Such a poetic voice.

Gotta respect Marlon Brando. That's a white man who is real about his allyship. He was willing to compromise his career and pulled this move.


Plus he was fine in his youth. Bahaha~

White people, man.

Brando was one of the few actors who put his career on the line to speak out and speak his mind.  He put his money where his mouth was. I'll always respect that.

I remember reading about this...Roger Moore took the award home for safe keeping until the officials asked for it

Littlefeather got all sorts of hate mail and death threats..people (read: white people) were saying things like she wasn't "a real Indian" and her costume was fake smh...Sleepy
