Brando photographed by Cecil Beaton, 1946 (scanned by me)

...I very nearly had a cataplectic fit when I first saw this picture, because for heaven's sake, just look at him.

One of the best actors of all time and the definition and epitome of cool and sexy. Which biography are you referring to? Thanks for the gorgeous photos!! The one where he is dripping wet..

I don't care if he was nuts, he was one of the greatest actors of the century. Also, rowwwr. (Is there a growling-in-lust smiley? If there's not, there totally should be.)

His autobiography is called "Songs Me Mother Taught Me".

Even if you don't like Brando all that much, it's still an amusing books with lots of great stories. I loved reading about his pet racoon Russell.

I agree, it is a really great book. I liked when he talked about acting and his his method. You can understand why he is considered a great actor, he really understood his craft.

He was so handsome, raw sexuality at its fullest

^ Happy reading!

It's such a great experience to view things from his perspective regarding social rights, his promiscuity and all that I really treasure it...tell us what you think of it when you're done reading!

Half of my face looked like Marlon Brando in the Godfather last fall when I had my wisdom tooth removed... Not my best look

I have to read that book too!

I'm so sad right now!
Simplyclassics.net is down... possibley gone forever. *Tear* That site had the greatest gallery of old hollywood stars. Anyone know what happened to it?
I don't know where to go now for Brando pictures.... I guess I'll have to live by what I saved onto my computer from that site.
Other than crosscity... there isn't really any spectacular Brando galleries on the web... at least not that iv'e found.

I hope simplyclassics will come back. It was the best site for old Hollywood pictures and discussions
