Publisher's Summary

Following his development from moody Oklahoma teenager to the method-trained star to the eccentric recluse of his later years, Patricia Bosworth offers a penetrating look at Marlon Brando's evolving persona: the volcanic Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire, the sensitive rebel in The Wild Ones, the iconic Don Corleone in The Godfather. Bosworth probes Brando's alcoholic parents' influence on his acting, his decades of psychoanalysis, and his tumultuous personal relationships. Here, from rebellious unknown to reluctant idol to falling star, is the complex charismatic genius who changed the face of acting.


What the Critics Say

"A vivid reminder of the personal and professional highlights of Brando's life." (Publishers Weekly)
"Bosworth, a gifted writer, has a clean, spare, but witty style, which helps her pack much more than one might expect into this tiny volume." (Booklist)
