Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Turner Classic Movies' Greatest Classic Films Collection: Marlon Brando collects four movies on two double-sided discs. Breakthrough performances don't come much more electrifying than Brando's animalistic turn as Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire. Sweaty, brutish, mumbling, yet with the balanced grace of a prizefighter, Brando storms through the role--a role he had originated in the Broadway production of Tennessee Williams's celebrated play. Some naysayers doubted Brando, he of the Method and mumbles, could do Shakespeare justice, but he acquits himself impressively as Mark Antony in Joseph Mankiewicz's stellar adaptation of Julius Caesar. Though now dicey from a PC standpoint, Brando, unlike Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany's, rises above grotesque caricature as a wily Japanese interpreter in The Teahouse of the August Moon, one of his rare forays into comedy. John Huston's Reflections in a Golden Eye teams Brando with another screen icon, Elizabeth Taylor, in a nasty piece of Southern gothic about sordid doings on a military base. Brando portrays a latent homosexual fixated on young soldier Robert Forrter, who has a penchant for naked horseback riding and sneaking into Taylor's room while she sleeps to fondle her clothing. --Robert Horton and Donald Liebenson

Product Description

A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE: THE ORIGINAL DIRECTOR’S VERSION (1951) Winner of 4 Academy Awards* “Perhaps the most thrilling display of ensemble acting in all of American film” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angelers Times) stars Marlon Brando, Vivien Leigh, Kim Hunter and Karl Malden in the screen version of Tenneesee Williams’ powerful Pulitzer Prize drama directed by Elia Kazan. JULIUS CAESAR (1953) Brando plays imperial loyalist Marc Antony in Shakespeare’s towering tale of friendship and betrayal co-starring James Mason and John Gielgud. Joseph L. Mankiewicz directs this lavish Academy Award winner.* THE TEAHOUSE OF THE AUGUST MOON (1956) Brando shows his comedy chops! In a delightful change of pace, he’s an interpreter in post-World War II Okinawa who bucks U.S. military men Glenn Ford and Paul Ford in order to build a teahouse – complete with geishas. REFLECTIONS IN A GOLDEN EYE (1967) Illicit passions play out against the hidebound decorum of a Georgia army base in a startling version of Carson McCullers’ novel. John Huston directs Brando and Elizabeth Taylor.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHY BRANDO WAS THE BEST!!! May 14, 2011
For anyone who wonders why Marlon Brando is believed by many to be the best actor that ever lived, this TCM collection of four Brando films goes far in answering that question. While not the "Best of Brando" (with the exception of STREETCAR included in this collection) in watching these four films back-to-back the sheer versatility of the man is amazing. Four films, four Brandos, and never the same person twice. From the muscled machismo of Stanley Kowalski in STREETCAR to the repressed homosexuality of Major Penderton in REFLECTIONS IN A GOLDEN EYE to the totally convincing, comedic incarnation of the Japanese Sakini in TEAHOUSE OF THE AUGUST MOON to the pitch-perfect patrician portrayal of Marc Antony in JULIUS CAESAR, one would be hard-pressed to believe they were watching the same man.

While versatility in and of itself is not the sole measure of great acting, in Brando's case it is his ability to become other people and magically make us truly believe he is those other people that makes him arguably - very arguably - the best actor ever. James Stewart, Spencer Tracy, James Cagney, even John Wayne - all mesmerizing, all magical, all wonderful actors - but basically always portraying variations on the main theme of their main strengths as actors. An actor can be versatile - but many who are also show their artifice as well as their art. Lon Chaney had a range of versatility and powers of transformation that totally fulfill his legendary status as the "Man of a Thousand Faces" - but, sadly, silent moves - great as so many undoubtedly are - are in a separate realm, as if from a different world when judging acting. With the advent of sound, the voice became as paramount to an actor's artistic tool-set as gesture and body chemistry.

These dvds were mislabeled. I didn't get what the packaging said I was supposed to get hence 4 stars. Marlon Brando was a star in his own rite.

I purchased this collection while just wanting the Teahouse of the August Moon but after watching that one we watched the others as well. I enjoyed them all, even though I wouldn't have chosen them separately.

I bought this for Teahouse of the August Moom-- a little known classic and one of my favorite movies. I am thoroughly enjoying the whole collection. Brando was a genius. It's nice to have him back in the house!
