Beautiful, Talented Marlon Brando

Marlon Brando is my favourite actor, along with Cary Grant. It's amazing that someone with so much talent had the added blessing of being so beautiful. There's a story about how he was so frustrated by people paying attention to him based on his looks that he deliberately got into a fight so as to get his nose broken. His nose did get broken, the consequence of which was that he ended up looking even better afterwards than he did before, haha. I'm not sure if there is any truth to the tale, but it's amusing nonetheless.

My favourite performances of his are: A Streetcar Named Desire, Last Tango in Paris, and, of course, The Godfather. He was also great in the underrated Reflections in a Golden Eye, where he starred opposite Elizabeth Taylor. If you have not seen the film, I highly recommend it. Not only does he look like the hottest of military daddies in it (:-P), but more importantly, seeing him and Taylor on the screen together is a treat no one should miss out on!
