About Marlon Brando Marlon Brando, Jr. (April 3, 1924 – July 1, 2004) was an American actor whose body of work spanned over half a century. As a young sex symbol, he is best known for his roles as Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire and his Academy Award-winning performance as Terry Malloy in On the Waterfront, both directed by Elia Kazan in the early 1950s. In middle age, his well-known roles include his Academy Award-winning performance as Vito Corleone in The Godfather, Colonel Walter Kurtz in Apocalypse Now, both directed by Francis Ford Coppola and an Academy Award-nominated performance as Paul in Last Tango in Paris. Brando's impact on film acting was seismic. He became known as the foremost example of the "method" acting style, and was initially much parodied for his "mumbling" diction, but his mercurial, often uncategorizable performances were held in the highest regard among his peers. Director Martin Scorsese said, "He is the marker. There's 'before Brando' and 'after Brando'.'" Actor Jack Nicholson once said, "When Marlon dies, everybody moves up one." Brando was an activist, lending his presence to many issues, including the American Civil Rights and American Indian Movements.
