Favourite Gent Of The Day

Brooding, raw, honest... Unlike any other actor of his time, Marlon Brando didn't give to audiences with the desperate hope of approval or acceptance. He gave to satisfy his own acting wants and needs constantly defying expectations. It was as Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire when Brando was first recognized - and nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor. However, it didn't take him too long to reach stardom. Leaving his mark on not only the female audience with his brooding good looks, the male audience was likewise taken with the actor and his unique rebel style as seen in the 1953 film The Wild One.

The image of Brando continues today. His reputation for being a bad boy, for being difficult to work with, for participating in numerous civil rights movements will always be at the heart of stories re-told. What he is best known for, in my opinion, is being unique, true to his method, intense and passionate. Marlon Brando will always live on through the years. Timeless, unforgettable, legendary...
