Marlon Brando - The Godfather
Super Star & Best Actor Winner

marlon-brando Handsome, sexy and primal, Marlon Brando was like a force of nature when he exploded on the screen in the 1950s. Although critics complained that he mumbled, the audience, particularly young people, went wild over him.

Considered by some to be the finest actor of his generation, Marlon Brando's defining role would be as the brutish Stanley Kowalski in STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE for which he won a Best Actor Award.

Brando's notable films include: DON JUAN DE MARCO, THE WILD ONE, ON THE WATERFRONT, THE GODFATHER his 2nd Oscar, THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU, SUPERMAN, APOCALYPSE NOW, and THE SCORE.

After being slim and trim in his youth, Marlon Brando grew to be over 300 lbs in later life. He claimed candidly that he had exchanged an earlier passion for women for a passion for food.
