In 1951, Marlon Brando received this letter from a 13-year-old girl from Marshalltown, Iowa:
I know how hard it must be with all those photographers and reporters chasing you around, so if you would like to come and stay at my home, my family would like you to come and stay as long as you like.
Marlon never answered. Anyway, five years later, the girl would be picked by Otto Preminger to play the leading role in Saint Joan: she was Jean Seberg.
