Marlon Brando is a cinematic actor who is considered one of the most famous American actors of the twentieth century, has many immortal roles over more than fifty years of acting, and is also known for such films as A Street Car Named Desir and The Godfather.
Marlon Brando was born on April 3, 1924, in Omaha, Nebraska. After a promising start in the fourth and fifth decades of the last century, including his legendary performance in the movie version of A Street Car Named Desir, Brando met in his career more failure than he met with success, until his role in The Godfather. After that, he received huge wages for small roles. He became known as a result of his indulgence but remained a highly respected actor.
The beginnings of Marlon Brando
Actor Marlon Brando was born on April 3, 1924, in Omaha, Nebraska. He grew up in Illinois, and after he was expelled from the Military Academy, he then worked in trenching until his father offered him funding for his education.
Brando moved to New York to study with acting coach Stella Adler at Lee Strasberg’s Actors Studio. Edler has always been known as Brando’s prime mover in his early days, and has been known for opening the doors to great works of literature, music and theater to the young actor.
While at the Actors Studio, Brando adopted a “method approach,” which emphasizes the characters’ motives in their actions. His first Broadway performance was in John Van Druten’s emotional play Remember Mama in 1944. New York City theater critics chose him as the most promising actor for his role in TruklineCaf in 1946.
The Achievements of Marlon Brando
In 1947, he gave his best role on stage as Stanley Kowalski – the wild person who rapes his sister-in-law, the kind girl Blanche de Bois in Tennessee William’s play A Street Car Named Desir.
Hollywood enticed Brando, and his first appearance was as the veteran, paralyzed politician in the movie The Men in 1950. Although he did not collaborate with the Hollywood advertising machine, he continued his progress in it, introducing the role of Kowalski in the 1951 movie version of A Street Car Named Desir, and his success was such a mass and fateful that he even won four Oscars for Brando.
His next movie was Viva Zaptata (1952), a screenplay by John Steinbeck, that traces Emil Yanuzapata’s rise from peasant to revolutionary. Brando continued this approach with Julius Caesar and later The Wild One in 1954, in which he played the captain of a biker in his leather jacket. Then an Academy Award went to him for his role as a regime-resistant docker in On The Waterfront, and the film cast a hard-hitting look at New York City labor unions.
Throughout the rest of this decade, Brando’s cinematic work ranged from Napoleon Bonaparte in Désirée in 1954, to Sky Masterson in Guys and Dolls (1955), where he performed singing and dancer in this film, and he also played the Nazi soldier in The Young Lions in 1958. Between In 1955 and 1958, it was chosen by film exhibitors as one of the top ten most sought-after at the box office nationwide.
However, his business met many times more failure than it did in the 1960s, especially after the disastrous re-introduction of Mutiny on the Bounty for MGM, which failed to recoup half of his massive budget. Brando introduced the character of Fletcher Christian, a role played by Clark Gebel in the original 1935 version. His excessive indulgence reached its peak while working on this film.
He was criticized for his tantrums on set and his attempt to change the script. Off the job, he had a slew of relationships, was an avid foodie, and cut himself off from the crew and filming set. And his contract to make the movie included $ 5,000 for every day the film passed its due date. In the end, he had earned $ 1.25 million.
Brando’s work came back to life in 1972 by playing the role of the mafia boss, Don Corleone, in the film directed by Francis Ford Coppola, The Godfather, a role for which he won an Academy Award for Best Actor. But he refused to receive an Academy Award, in protest at the way Hollywood had dealt with Native Americans, and Brando himself did not appear at the awards ceremony. Instead, he sent a Native American woman to read the rejection letter on his behalf.
In the following years Brando presented his most controversial and most acclaimed work Last Tango in Paris, which is rated an adult-only film. Since then, Brando has received high pay for playing minor roles in films such as Superman in 1978 and Apocalypse Now in 1979. He was nominated for an Academy Award for best supporting role in A Dry White Season in 1989, and Brando appeared in the comedy film The Freshman alongside Matthew Broderick. .
Brando participated in the 1995 Don Juan De Marco with Johnny Depp. And early 1996, he represented Brando in the unpopular film The Island of Dr Moreau.
Entertainment Weekly reported that Brando was using headphones to remember his roles. David Thuyles, who co-starred with him, told the magazine that Brando was otherwise the focus of his admiration. In 2001, Brando played an elderly jewelry thief looking for a last chance in The Score, co-starring Robert De Niro, Edward Norton and Angela Bassett.
