About this title:

Synopsis: Presenting a portrait of Marlon Brando, the author offers a critique of his personal style and attempts to define and explore his charisma. This book provides an insight into the actor's influence over a generation and assesses the reasons behind his becoming a symbolic figure. His behaviour and attitudes still cause controversy today and this portrait of an actor is illustrated throughout with stills fom the Kobal collection, highlighting Brando's potent image which must take much of the credit for his unprecedented influence.

Book Description Pavilion Books Ltd, London, 1991. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 90 photographs (illustrator). First Edition. Dust jacket complete, unclipped. Original grey cloth wit bright black titling on spine. No ownership inscription. The text is illustrated with 90 quintessential black and white images of Brando. 218 pages clean and tight. Brando brooding. It was a sight never before seen in the movies. In films like A Streetcar Named Desire, The Wild One, On The Waterfront he redefined the nature of screen heroism, redefined the standards of screen acting and helped the entire post-war generation to define itself. In the process he became something more than a star; he became a cultural icon, one of those rare figures whose public life permanently invades, and in some measure shapes, our private reveries. A distinguished critic recalling. Richard Schickel is a member of that generation that came of age as Marlon Brando entered his first claims on the world's attention. In this book he recreates the excitement, the danger, the controversy of the years when Marlon Brando challenged, and upended, everyone's ideals of heroic performance and everyone's ideas of how a movie star's life should be lived. More than that, the author recreates the era in which Brando came of age: Hollywood in crisis, America addled by anxious prosperity and Cold War conformities, and an alien culture - youth - forming within the larger one. A life that is more than a `life.' Marlon Brando was the product of an archetypal American adolescence - at once rebellious and dutiful. In his young manhood he knew fame and achievement as everyone dreams of it - vast, sudden, overwhelming. In maturity he alternately despised and embraced his own gifts and the gifts the world insisted on pressing upon him. In age, his life has been touched by tragedy. In tracing this life, as notable for its enigmas and its refusals as it is for its ambiguous triumphs, Richard Schickel has provided the first serious, deeply considered analysis of all of Marlon Brando's movies, offering fresh and often surprising judgements on his work and the conditions under which it was performed. Writing in a unique tone - at once intimate and ironic - drawing on his remarkable sense of film and social history, the author places the films firmly within the context of their times. More importantly, he also places the troubled, troubling life of his subject in the context of our lives, showing how Brando has reflected and refracted the hopes of his own theatrical generation, influenced the aspirations of those who have followed him, helped determine the relationship of celebrities to their own fame and, above all, defined his public's relationship with the movies, with stardom and with the life of the times they have shared with Marlon Brando.
