Excellent price for this Marlon Brando Box Set
A collection of classic and unusual Marlon Brando movies including The Wild One, One The Waterfront, The Ugly American and The Appaloosa.
The Wild One (1954) An angry young Marlon Brando scorches the screen as The Wild One in this powerful 50s cult classic. Brando plays Johnny, the leader of a vicious biker gang that involves a small, sleepy California town. The leather-jacketed young biker seems hell-bent on destruction until he falls for Kathie (Mary Murphy), a 'good-girl' whose father happens to be a cop. Unfortunately for Johnny, his one shot at redemption is threatened by a psychotic rival, Chino (Lee Marivn), plus the hostility and prejudice of the townspeople. All their smouldering passions explode in an electrifying climax!
On The Waterfront (1954) Marlon Brando is the longshoreman who finds himself increasingly isolated when he challenges the might and power of the tough new York City dockers' Union. Rod Steiger is his elder brother, torn between loyalty to union and love of family. Lee J. Cobb is the powerful union boss, while Eva Marie Saint is the girl with whom Brando falls in love.
Winner of 8 Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Support Actress, Best Director and Best Screenplay, this devastating film has, since its first screening, become one of the movie greats.
The Ugly American (1963) As a compassionate American ambassador to the strife-torn Southeast Asian nation of Sarkhan, Brando tries to keep the Communists in the north from overrunning the weakened democracy in the south by making sure a vital road into the country's inaccessible interior goes through. But, from his very arrival, 'The Ugly American' is met with suspicion and hate even by an influential freedom fighter now suspected of being a Communist agent.
The Appaloosa (1966) A cowboy plans to start up a stud farm but is interrupted by a group of men who believe he has attacked their girl...
