"FOR A WHILE, the sensitive galoot was everyone's ideal - raw, physical, bluecollar, but also tender, vulnerable, noble. ... Even as the man himself decayed, the legacy of that look - Streetcar cred - endured for decades, in movies, in photography, in advertising, in American habits of dress."

Something on Marlon Brando worth reading.
