Classic Hollywood MTC Podcasts

Marlon Brando was a legend in his own lifetime. At the peak of his film career in the 1950s he created a series of film performances including the character Terry Malloy in On the Waterfront that not only defined him as an actor, but defined an era marked by the rise of the Stanislavsky and method schools of acting.

By the end of the 1950s Brando was at the top of his game, loved by actors, the studios and the public a like. His films minting millions of dollars.

This all changed with the making of two films that have since become cult classics, the psychological western One Eyed Jacks, Brando's only official directorial effort and the seafaring epic Mutiny on the Bounty which Brando virtually directed by default.

Brando's reported behaviour behind the scenes of both films would have a long lasting effect on the studios that commissioned both movies and his personal and professional career.

Enjoy the eventful story of One Eyed Jacks and the Brando Mutiny as told by Mrs Classic Film Fan.   

The music "The Wild at Heart" is by Jonny Easton. 

Have a great Easter break and look out for the next Classic Hollywood MTC episode in May.
