Diesel Praises Brando Classic

Hollywood actor VIN DIESEL may be fond of starring in high-octane action movies and family comedies, but his favourite movie is the classic MARLON BRANDO-starring ON THE WATERFRONT.

The XXX star hails the dramatic 1954 movie as "genius", and was fortunate enough to recently meet the film's elderly writer, 91-year-old BUDD SCHULBERG.

He says, "ELIA KAZAN and MARLON BRANDO working on ON THE WATERFRONT...it's genius in action.

"I talked to Budd about that movie a few months ago and when he told me how hard it was to make the thing it made me love it a little bit more."
