Marlon Brando
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences issued a formal apology earlier this year for Littlefeather's mistreatment at the 1973 Oscars.
Littlefeather was asked by Best Actor winner Brando to turn down the award in 1973 due to the treatment of Native Americans.
"He had an oxygen tank and he just kind of held my boob, because that was in the script."
The legendary filmmaker also explained why, despite some conflict in their friendship, Brando remains his hero.
In 1973, with mixed reviews and pre-Fandango screenings that had to be purchased in advance, it grossed the equivalent of $186 million.
The nod to Marlon Brando’s “The Wild One” character is just the start.
Vittorio Storaro says it was "made up by a journalist."
The filmmaker describes how the scene was filmed in a newly surfaced video.
The five films nominated for Outstanding Documentary/Nonfiction Special attempt to understand several of the most creative minds of the 20th century.
