4.0 out of 5 stars An Incredible Actor
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars An Incredible Actor, 3 July 2011

This review is from: Marlon Brando - The Wild One/On The Waterfront/The Ugly American/The Appaloosa [DVD] (DVD)
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.

Only really wanted the first two titles but still good value and the other two may turn out to be a bonus

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!

four near classics from brando's early years and on separate DVDs too.Shows just how good an actor he was.The Pallokaville scene alone was worth the price of the 4 DVDs.I thought The Appalosa might be the weak link but this too was vintage Brando.This was a far superior western than anything the cigar-chewing Clint ever mustered.

I've been a fan of Marlon Brando ever since I saw the Mutiny on the Bounty when I was a boy. Can do no wrong

1966 Production, staring Marlon Brando. However, for me was the work of the Director of Photography, Russel Metty. True cinematography!
