Brando Was A Huge Jackie Brown Fan

Late actor MARLON BRANDO was such a huge fan of QUENTIN TARANTINO's JACKIE BROWN, he could recite a large chunk of SAMUEL L JACKSON's lines from the 1997 movie.

PULP FICTION star Jackson, 55, was stunned when Brando - who died in July (04) - did this for him one evening.

He says, "I'm really anxious to meet (certain) people sometimes, just so I can say I've had a conversation with them.

"I had a great conversation about acting with MARLON BRANDO one night. He just walked up on me and started doing lines from JACKIE BROWN. "I turned around thinking it was a fan - but it was (Brando).

"It was great to know he watched the film and liked it so much that he remembered my dialogue."
