Marlon Brando, in full Marlon Brando, Jr., (born April 3, 1924, Omaha, Nebraska, U.S.—died July 1, 2004, Los Angeles, California), American motion picture and stage actor known for his visceral, brooding characterizations.
This is a complete filmography of Marlon Brando, who is considered one of the greatest actors of all time.
- Marilyn’s Death. Brando studied people. It was his work, and it was his innate ability to mimic others, coupled with his imagination and empathy, that made him so great, and he knew it too.
- No Burt For Brando. Harboring a dislike for Burt Reynolds, when Brando found out that Reynolds was being considered for the role of Michael Corleone in The Godfather, he threatened to leave the production entirely.
- Cheesecake Takes. Though Sinatra held a grudge against Brando, they co-starred in the 1955 film production of Guys and Dolls. Aware of Sinatra’s animosity, Brando purposely worked to get under the crooner’s skin, and would intentionally mess up scenes because he knew it would get to Sinatra.
- Frankie and the Grudge. When Brando had originally declined the Oscar winning role of Terry Malloy, Frank Sinatra was cast as his replacement, only to be pushed out once Brando was convinced to change his mind.
