    I was 14 when this was released and totally enamored of Marlon Brando. I think I saw the movie a dozen times at the movies in 1961. I can’t watch it at all today, it’s so over-the-top hokey. But when I was 14, it was HOT.

      I recall some scenes – the bullwhip scene in particular – when his hand is smashed – as being very shocking back then. To the films credit this scene is still very powerful, but by today’s standards we see worse on TV every night. Notably, there is also little or no blood in the movie despite several scenes of death by gunfire. These days we have blood everywhere and hardly bat an eye. I’d have to say the overblown gore these days has diminished it’s impact – else we’ve just become deadened to it all.

      Yes … what that Star Power is, Brando had it in Aces.
