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.

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
