Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

As this five-film box set vividly demonstrates, Marlon Brando was, at least in the beginning of his legendary career, not one to rest on his laurels or emerging mythic status. Spanning 1953 to 1980, this collection gathers some of his most challenging and offbeat performances. 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. In Mutiny on the Bounty, Brando daringly portrays Fletcher Christian so foppish that he makes Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow look like Errol Flynn in The Sea Hawk. 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.

Only The Formula, a still timely, yet confusing conspiracy thriller about synthetic fuel, is dispensable, although Brando is compelling to watch in his few scenes opposite fellow Oscar-holdout, George C. Scott. More entertaining than the film is the lively audio commentary with director John Avildson and screenwriter Steve Shagan. Suffice to say, they have little good to say about Scott, disgraced former studio head David Begelman, and, of all people, Christopher Lambert, who would star in another film that Shagan wrote. The Julius Caesar disc contains an excellent bonus, "The Rise of Two Legends," in which Laurence Fishburne refers to Shakespeare as "the Aaron Spelling of his day," and Dennis Hopper praises Brando for taking "the act out of acting." Mutiny is given the two-disc "Special Edition" treatment with a bounty of extras. Most concern the construction of the ship for the film, but we do get the original prologue and epilogue that were excised before the film's release and then restored for its 1967 television broadcast, and not seen since. The Teahouse disc contains an entertaining vintage featurette that follows cast and crew to Japan, while Reflections offers raw on-location footage. All five films are making their domestic DVD debuts. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

Marlon Brando is surely one of the most enigmatic and highly praised actors in film history. This collection presents five of his films on DVD for the first time. Two of the films (Julius Caesar, Mutiny On The Bounty) are available on their own, but most fans will spend the extra $13 for the box set, which also includes The Formula (w/ George C. Scott), Reflections In A Golden Eye (w/ Elizabeth Taylor), and Teahouse Of The August Moon (w/ Glenn Ford).

5.0 out of 5 stars Reflections in a golden eye is golden again November 17, 2006
Format:DVD
Yes,the disk of relections in a golden eye is indeed in the original golden colored treatment as intended by director John Huston.Restored by Warner Bros you can now see this great film in the version intended by its creator.A unique experience.Forty years ahead of its time.A must for film collectors and admirers of Huston as a director.The color treatment adds immeasurably to the power of the narrative and lends a hypnotic and dreamlike edge to this disturbing and provocative film.Get it.Hard to believe the packaging does not mention the gold in this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Special Talent November 6, 2006
Format:DVD
It isn't merely his brilliant acting and physical beauty, but that extra quality people in show business call "stage presence." Only 2 of these titles (JULIUS CAESAR and TEAHOUSE) are among the very best of his 38 major films, but all 5 are ample proof--if proof is needed--that Marlon Brando is one of our most enduring stars.

JULIUS CAESAR: Shakespeare gets the fancy Hollywood treatment, with a young Brando heading an impressive cast, and he more than holds his own with the likes of James Mason, John Gielgud, and Deborah Kerr. His Marc Antony is a fascinating interpretation.

THE TEAHOUSE OF THE AUGUST MOON: In this film of John Patrick's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Brando is the sly Japanese(!) interpreter for a group of Americans in postwar Okinawa. He wouldn't be cast in the part today (they'd find an appropriate Asian actor), but it remains one of his best comic performances.

MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY: A solid remake of the classic, not as good as the original and way too long, but worth a look for Brando's complex portrait of Fletcher Christian. And the cinematography is stunning.

REFLECTIONS IN A GOLDEN EYE: Perhaps his most offbeat role, as a repressed homosexual Army officer who prefers (nude) Robert Forster to (nude) Elizabeth Taylor. John Huston's film of Carson McCullers's novel is certainly--umm--naked, a kinky but interesting oddity.

THE FORMULA: Brando only has a couple of scenes in this film version of Steve Shagan's bestselling thriller (George C. Scott and Marthe Keller are the actual leads), but it's awesome to watch him and Scott locking horns. Nobody could play a charming villain as well as Brando (see THE GODFATHER), and the subject of this film (the formula of the title) is surprisingly timely.

So, you decide which are your favorite Brando films, but these 5 are all interesting examples of his work.

"The Marlon Brando" collection is quite easily one of the best collections

to come out recently (and there have been many). We all have our favorites, and I have mine. I would buy this just to get "Teahouse of

the August Moon" and "Julius Ceasar". And, "Teahouse" is far and away my

favorite. Mr Brando plays an interpreter on Okinawa, working for the US

Army...along with a fantastic supporting cast. Every one of these films

is worthy and shows the range of Mr. Brando's abilities. I would say "You

Can't Go Wrong". Then, you might want to add "Sayonnara"...which is lavish, dated, and sad...but well worth watching...and it will round

out your collection. I am a big fan of the "Teahouse of the August Moon"

and "Guys and Dolls" Brando...and I tend to keep quite a distance from

"The Wild One" Brando. I would add that whatever your tastes, Mr Brando probably has something of interest to share with you, so go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection March 20, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not his most famous movies, but a great collection showing his multitude of acting styles and presence. The Mutiny on the Bounty was a two-disc set. Well worth the price of this collection just by itself!

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT BRANDO LIBRARY September 17, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Believe it or not, I had not seen ALL of the movies in this collection ... ever.

Suffice it to say, each of the movies in this collection is a classic ... and in my more senior years, I REALLY "get it". For example, like virtually ALL educated Americans, I had to read William Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" first in high school, then again in college ... and, never mind the strange ancient English, I had no idea about the true meanings of deviousness, treachery, betrayal, and tragedy. Indeed, the familiar funeral oration over Caesar's murdered corpse, where Mark Antony sways the easily manipulated Roman crowd ... a Marlon Brando classic ... was amazing. Indeed, in a special feature commentary by actors such an aging Dennis Hopper it is explained how Brando in that one scene changed Hollywood acting forever.

I could gush about each of the other movies in this collection, but for the price you cannot beat the quality and quantity of entertainment. Also the quality of the DVD sound and images are crisp, evidently having been made from digitally well restored prints.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Marlon Brando Collection January 11, 2007
Format:DVD
An amazing set of films that I have been waiting for on DVD for a number of years. I think Julius Caesar, Reflections in a Golden Eye, The Teahouse of the August Moon and the Formula are all first time on DVD. Altough thes are not Brando at his very best, they are most important in showing the wide range of roles he could play. The whole set is very well presented and I would recommend the set, not just to Brando completists, but also to those who only know him from his more famous roles, The Godfather, On the Waterfront. The man will be sorely missed and this set goes a long way to showing what a great actor he was. There are not many 'film stars' around today who could hold a candle to him. A wondeful tribute!!
