Remembering Marlon Brando on His Birthday


Marlon Brando is widely considered one of the greatest actors of all time. The Omaha, Nebraska-born star rose to prominence in 1951, when he played Stanley Kowalski in the film adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire. He’d go on to star in some of the most culturally significant films of the 20th century, including Julius Caesar, Viva Zapata!, Sayonara, and, of course, The Godfather, all of which earned him numerous accolades. His reputation as a “bad boy” in cinema cemented his status as a bonafide Hollywood sex symbol throughout the ‘50s and ‘60s, and he had a laundry list of love affairs to prove it. While Brando’s personal life was wrought with tumultuousness, he was notoriously active in the political realm, participating in the civil rights movement and advocating for marginalized groups. In honor of what would have been the screen icon’s 95th birthday today, CR MEN looks back on his illustrious, 60-year career in photos.
