Lights! Camera! Interaction!

Good acting, according to Oscar nominee Robert Forster '64, is interacting-both among actors on stage and between the actors and their audience.

During an impromptu two-hour session at Drama House, Forster, himself very much in interactive mode, fielded questions and spun stories about an actor's life on Hollywood sound stages. Before Marlon Brando came along, Forster told his listeners, it was assumed that the only good actor was a loud actor. That changed when Brando, insisting on using his characteristic mumble, started a trend toward naturalistic acting that resulted in performers relating to each other like real people. It was, Forster pronounced, "Marlon Brando's good deed."
