Somebody : The Reckless Life and Remarkable Career of Marlon Brando

Author(s): Stefan Kanfer


Marlon Brando will never cease to fascinate us: for his triumphs as an actor as well as his disasters; for the power of the screen portrayals he gave. This title examines each of Brando's films. It brings into focus Brando's self-destructiveness, his lifelong dissembling, his deeply ambivalent feelings towards his chosen vocation.
