Product Description

Four films starring Marlon Brando. 'The Wild One' (1953) is the classic biker movie in which Marlon Brando famously responds to the question 'What are you rebelling against?' with the retort 'What d'ya got?'. A gang of motorcyclists, led by rebellious Johnny (Brando), ride into a small California town and terrorise the inhabitants. Johnny falls for the local cop's daughter (Mary Murphy), but a rival in his gang (Lee Marvin) and the hostility of the townspeople create too many tensions for anything but a violent climax. In 'On the Waterfront' (1954), ex-boxer Terry Malloy (Brando) becomes involved in corrupt dockside politics through his lawyer brother Charley (Rod Steiger), who works for gangster union boss Johnny Friendly (Lee J. Cobb). When Terry witnesses the murder of a union worker by Johnny's thugs, his conscience begins to trouble him. He meets the murdered man's sister (Eva Marie Saint), and learns from Father Barry (Karl Malden) that the dead man was about to expose Johnny's illegal activities. Father Barry then tries to convince Terry to provide the evidence required to put Johnny behind bars. The film won eight Oscars, including Best Actor for method man Brando. In 'The Ugly American' (1962) Brando plays a publisher who is appointed ambassador to a small Asian nation in the throes of a communist insurgency, and his arrival leads to an escalation in the fighting. Brando stars in 'The Appaloosa' (1966) as the lone wanderer returning home with some hard-earned money and a valuable horse (the Appaloosa), planning to settle down and start a stud farm. Unfortunately the horse is stolen by crazy Mexican bandit Chuy (John Saxon), sparking off a long-running duel between the two men.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Incredible Actor 3 July 2011
Verified Purchase
Nearly sixty years ago, my mother took me and my brother to a matinee of The Wild One (she didn't know what she was getting into) and I have been a fan ever since. The Wild One and On the Waterfront are two of Brando's greatest films: an exceptionally talented actor before he "went strange" and before speech was overtaken by mumbles. These two films make the set worthwhile. The Ugly American is a period piece and looks both naive and wrong-headed now, with its portrayal of a "good" American diplomat in the imaginary country of "Sarkan" (a thinly-coded Vietnam), with the "Evil Commies" itching to overthrow the American-backed government. The Appaloosa (a.k.a. Southwest to Sonora) has some good moments (and some glorious scenery), but it is marked by conventions of the time (1966): to show when Brando is speaking Spanish he assumes a grotesque Mexican accent, for instance. Still, this is what westerns were. Not Brando's best, but worth a look.

Brando was always a favourite and re-watching these iconic films hasn't disappointed me. It's a myth that he mumbled and wasn't comprehensible!
