That ongoing, barely under control drama known as Marlon Brando―Hollywood's Ultimate Bad Boy, Megastar, and Sexual Outlaw―with a special focus on his early rise to fame and his social and sexual associations with the A-list legends of the 40s, 50s, and 60s. Brando Unzipped is the definitive gossip guide to the late, great actor's life ―New York Daily News. Lurid, raunchy, perceptive, and certainly worth reading, it's one of the best show-biz biographies of the year. ―London's Sunday Times. Brando Unzipped received an Honorable Mention from Foreword Magazine in its Book of the Year competition, and it won a Silver Ippy award for Best Biography from the Independent Publisher's Association.

Mega-star Marlon Brando is remembered both as a sexual outlaw and as the most radical and astonishing actor of his generation.
The subject is fascinating, historically important, and highly commercial. In fact, I'm amazed that other, larger publishing houses failed to compile biographies of their own since his death in July of 2004.
Maybe they were afraid of the controversy, or maybe they didn't have access to the wealth of previously unpublished material that the book's author, Hollywood veteran Darwin Porter, spent 45 years compiling.
Much to my amusement, during our pre-publication publicity of this title, a well-preserved and sexy, but otherwise not-particularly-flamboyant woman confronted me at a trade fair, hoping that her name--based on a short sexual interlude she cited-- had been included among Marlon's thousands of "conquests."
It was then that I fully appreciated the animal attraction Brando held for his fans, and the energy that some of them expend, even today, linking their names to his historical record.From the Author:
Within the pages of this book, the source of each individual piece of information is positioned close to the spot where the information actually appears.
Also within the pages, direct quotations have been transcribed "as they were remembered" by the people who originally heard the remarks. They're presented in the same format, using the same phraseologies, that were used when those remarks were originally transmitted to me. If the exact wording and phraseologies of any individual quotation are NOT accurately presented, the author hopes that the points being made, and the impressions being relayed, have nonetheless been rendered and repeated as accurately as possible.
To each of the sources that went into the compilation of this biography--dead or alive--and to the countless others not mentioned, I extend my heartfelt thanks for unveiling an American original, Marlon Brando Jr.
