Marlon Brando, Jr. (April 3, 1924 – July 1, 2004) was an American movie star and political activist. Amazing! That's all I have to say about Marlon Brando. He actually was an activist, supporting many issues, notably the African-American Civil Rights Movement and various American Indian Movements.I also didn't know he was born in Omaha, Nebraska, where I lived for 9 years and met my husband. An enduring cultural icon, Brando became a box office star during the 1950s, during which time he racked up five Oscar nominations as Best Actor, along with three consecutive wins of the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role. He initially gained popularity for recreating the role as Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire (1951), a Tennessee Williams play that had established him as a Broadway star during its 1947-49 stage run; and for his Academy Award-winning performance as Terry Malloy in On the Waterfront (1954), as well as for his iconic portrayal of the rebel motorcycle gang leader Johnny Strabler in The Wild One (1953), which is considered to be one of the most famous images in pop culture. However, this tutorial is a homage to Brando. Also the drawing of him is his character role Stanley Kowalski in "A Streetcar Named Desire." That man had an animal magnetism one couldn't refuse. Just LOOK AT HIM! Buffed! I had to vent. However my peeps, if you enjoyed this tut, please let me know by a fav, vote, and comment. Love you all! Peace out!
