Those flights from New York to London sure do get tiresome, and after a few drinks in first class, what's left to do except write love letters to the flight attendant? Over at Letters of Note, an amazing online archive of scanned letters, memos and notes by famous folks, you can see for yourself a strange missive from Marlon Brando himself way back in 1966. According to the site, Brando wrote this letter during the flight and handed it to the flight attendant as he was leaving the plane.

Brando was already a mega–movie star from his '50s films like 'A Streetcar Named Desire' and 'On the Waterfront,' but the '60s were a little more uneven for him. While filming 'Mutiny on the Bounty' in Tahiti, he bought the island of Tetiaroa and later married his co-star, the much younger Tarita Teriipia in 1962. It wasn't until 1972's 'The Godfather' that Brando really got his groove back.
