Jamie Cunningham and Horse's Mouth co-founder Tina Croll were grateful to have spent a long afternoon with Freddie toward the end of his life. "At 99, he was as lively as ever," said Mr. Cunningham. "One story he told really stayed with me - Freddie said when he danced Stanley Kowalski in the ballet of Streetcar Named Desire, Marlon Brando came back stage and said, 'If I could do with words what you're doing with movement, I'd be a better Stanley.' That's the kind of artist he was," said Mr. Cunningham.
