The Brand of Brando

79



Mercurial. Handsome. Legendary. Marlon Brando shaped the craft of  acting with his performances on stage and the screen. As the brutish Stanley Kowalski in Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire, or in the lifetime performance of Don Vito Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola’s blockbuster, The Godfather, Brando was inevitably named by Hollywood as the Actor of the Century. 

Over the years, his legend has only grown, building an army of fans around the world. If you are one among the many fans  of  the late actor’s films, or his school of acting, this quiz may be the place to put your trivia strengths to the test; these two cinephiles aced it.
