On this day, April 3rd, in 1924, Marlon Brando was born. With that name. And that face. And, that…well… you know the rest.
But just case you don’t know ALL of it, and I’m guessing you surely don’t, you must try and watch the new(ish) documentary “Listen To Me Marlon”
I’ve been meaning to tell you about it forever but, as you’ve no doubt noticed, my blog might as well be a recluse on an island in Tahiti of late.
Anyway, if you’re a fan, like me (verging on stalker) I highly recommend it. It’s sad, really tough to watch at times, but totally mesmerising. With previously unseen film, photos and a treasure trove of raw audio tapes, Brando himself basically narrates the entire documentary. Some pretty powerful and provocative footage.

“and it’s been a struggle to try to preserve sanity and the sense of reality that is taken away from you by success” Brando
“When what you are is unwanted, then you look for an identity that will be acceptable” (Brando, speaking about his childhood)
OK, as Marlon would say, I have to scram. To search Google choosing Brando photos is to completely write off the rest of my night. Helloo00.
xx Miss you! Hope you had a great weekend.
