Christian Brando [October 1st]

I just wondered if anyone knew if Christian was reconciled with his mother, Anna, after he left jail?  I know he refused to see her during the trial and while he was in jail.

Yay! Marlon Brando [July 20th]

A Marlon Brando Community! You'd think I'd have searched for it sooner but I guess I never really thought about it. After Cary Grant, Marlon Brando is my favorite actor. I've only seen a few of his movies: Guys and Dolls, On the Waterfront, Sayonara, The Wild One, etc. But I love his portrayal of character - you always know when he's serious - have you ever recognized in all four of the movies I mentioned he has a hand motion that he makes when he's most serious. I can't really explain it. By far, Guys and Dolls is my favorite for a lot of reasons but On the Waterfront is close behind.

I watched the first half of the Brando Documentary - I have yet to watch the second half. I think I was becoming a bit depressed but they certainly had some amazing pictures and information about him.

Let me know what movies I should be looking out for!

Thanks -

New Member [June 27th]

I just wanted to give a quick introduction. I'm glad that I found an active community dedicated to Marlon Brando, my favourite actor. I've been a fan of his for about four years, after seeing The Godfather for the first time. I think his best performance may be in On The Waterfront and Last Tango in Paris, but I also love him in A Streetcar Named Desire and The Wild One, among others.

I look forward to meeting the rest of you! :)

Last night, in one of the local theaters, they played A Streetcar Named Desire :] It was so amazing seeing Marlon on the big screen as it was meant to be shown. It was quite the experience that I will never forget.

Incase none of you have seen this, here is a video of a rare Marlon Brando screentest shot in 1947. This film he is auditioning for is in fact called "Rebel Without a Cause" but this is not the famous James Dean film and this version never was produced. Brando was just beginning to bloom- his debut film wouldn't be out until 1950. It's actually very interesting to watch how much he evolved. Check it out:

TCM! [May 3rd]

[ mood | bouncy ]

Did anyone watch the 2 day documentary? I want to watch it enormously, but I don't have TCM! Pray tell what happened. I hope it will be up on YouTube or so someday.

Well a few days ago I ordered his autobiography, and I can't wait until I receieve it. The only book on him at my library is the bio by Patricia Bosworth, which I really enjoyed. The lady can write! Not a chapter where I grew bored, which is quite difficult for a lot of biographies.

Truthfully I haven't watched a ton of Brando films, due to the fact of their unavailability here. From what I have seen, I've just been so impressed. It's no wonder so many actors including James Dean and Paul Newman idolize him.
