Marlon Brando

By timparkin  
Brando's performance as Vito Corleone in 1972's The Godfather was a mid-career turning point. Director Francis Ford Coppola convinced Brando to submit to a "make-up" test, in which Brando did his own makeup (he used cotton balls to simulate the puffed-cheek look). Coppola was electrified by Brando's characterization as the head of a crime family, but had to fight the studio in order to cast the temperamental Brando, whose reputation for difficult behavior and demands was the stuff of backlot legend. Mario Puzo always imagined Brando as Corleone.

Quote:Its a great image. I dont see the connection though.

I saw the black rocks as representing the cotton wool that Marlon used to create the unique look of the godfather. and the setting sun to the left of Rhum as the mafia's influence on the descendant but with little to replace it. The sands of time wash around the whole lot but with a promise of a new dawn the next day..
