Young Marlon Brando

So obviously I'm into old and vintage things. But I never knew that I will enjoy watching black and white movies as well, courtesy of Mr. Brando.

Good God, the young Jor El was HOT.

Frankly I never watched any of his movie but Superman, and it used to be the oldest movie I had ever watched (Superman was released in 1975). But then my friend posted that animated gif above in my Facebook timeline and I was like "WHO IS THIS GUY I SHOULD KNOW HIS NAME" lol joking. In that exact moment I knew he was now probably older than my granny or even already dead. I was right tho.

WHY I'm always attracted to characters that are not real?! Well in this case he was real. But already dead so it's the same.

This is a video I found in Youtube with keyword "young Marlon Brando" lol. It's a scene from a 50's movie called A Streetcar Named Desire, the movie that had brought him fame. He, as Stanley Kowalski, was such a bad guy, but sometimes sweet.....I think. That moment after he was arguing with his wife Stella, he would come to her, apologize, and hug her, was kinda sweet. But he was so temperamental that he wouldn't hesitate to mistreat his wife. He would apologize later tho, and Stella would always forgive him (like whaa).

Stanley Kowalski is the kind of man the most of girls like: masculine, powerful, aggressive, and yes, hot. But he's not my type (and no one's asking).

I did watch the entire movie and I can tell you it was such an amazing movie. It's considered as one of the greatest movie of all time not for nothing. Especially when the greatest living actor--who was no longer alive--was in it.

One more video. See the animated gif up there? It was from a rare screentest of him for Rebel Without A Cause (1955). He eventually turned down the role and it was given to James Dean. Tragically, James Dean was found dead on a car accident a month before the movie was released. For your info, James Dean idolized Brando so much that he imitated the way he act and dated the same women that he did. That's creepy for heaven's sake!

"That f**cking Jimmy doesn't just want to imitate me, he wants to be me!" Marlon said, quoted from Brando Unzipped, a book by Darwin Porter. Even the great James Dean wanted to be Marlon.

God, his southern accent was so alluring.
