Marlon Brando

Marlon Brando

Born on 3rd April 1924, Marlon Brando Jr., known for his captivating screen presence, is believed by many to be the greatest actor of all time. He won two Academy Awards for his performances in On the Waterfront (1955) and The Godfather (1972), though he famously rejected his second Academy Award in protest against the treatment of Native Americans by the film industry. He is remembered for his "bad boy" reputation. In fact, the road he lived on in Beverley Hills was nicknamed "Bad Boy Drive", as Brando, Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson all lived on it - all notorious Hollywood "bad boys." He also never learnt his lines. Instead, from early on in his acting career, he relied on cue cards held by other cast members or taped to walls!
