Marlon Brando: Anatomy of an Actor Hardcover – May 21, 2013
by Florence Colombani (Author)

Marlon Brando (1924-2004) is an icon in the history of American cinema. When he passed away in 2004, The New York Times remember 'the rebellious prodigy who electrified a generation and forever transformed the art of screen acting... a truly revoluntionary presence.'

From his beginnings in A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) to his mythic performances The Godfather (1972) and Apocalypse Now (1979), Brando, who worked with such famous film stars as Elizabeth Taylor and Al Pacino, and such leading directors as Elia Kazan, John Huston and Francis Ford Coppola, has become a benchmark for other actors.

Anatomy of an Actor titles are comprehensive studies on the craft of the world's greatest actors, through the analysis of ten of their most iconic roles. The authors examine why and how these famous actors have become some of the most respected and influential in the film world. Each title is divided into 10 chapters, each one dedicated to a specific role and fully documented with film stills, on-set photography and film sequences.
