Marlon Brando was one of Hollywood's great leading men, with a distinctive style of his own. He started his career on Broadway where he was an exponent of the method acting style. He had success with the stage version of a Street Car Named Desire and went on to star in the film version. He was not an obvious choice for the role of Julius Ceasar given his more earthy approach and voice, but he put all of himself into it and got an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. In The Wild One he played the rebellious anti-hero. It was banned for years in the UK due to the nature of its content. This was followed by one of his best acting performances in On The Waterfront for which he did win the Best Actor Oscar. At this point he was a major star but developed a reputation of being difficult to work with. In Guys And Dolls he showed he could sing and dance, a change from previous roles. His next major role was Mutiny On The Bounty. In the 1960's he appeared in several films that that were not particularly successful. His career took an upturn when Francis Ford Coppolla cast himin The Godfather. It became the most memorable of his films and won him a second Best Actor Oscar. His next film was the controversial Last Tango In Paris. In Superman he was paid a lot for just a very small part.
