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!

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

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!
