David Downing explores the development of this complex and wayward genius, through the early string of Brando's unprecedented triumphs such as A Streetcar named Desire and On the Waterfront, for which he finally won an Oscar, having been nominated four years in succession; the long eclipse; and the eventual, triumphant return with The Godfather, Last Tango in Paris and Apocalypse Now. He examines the development of Brando's acting talent, his increasing disenchantment with the cinema as a career, his growing commitment to political and ecological causes. A wonderfully illustrated portrait that shows us the face and the soul of Marlon Brando, actor of genius.
