Marlon Brando Trivia

Marlon Brando was well-known for never reading a script for a role. What is less well-known is that he suffered from dyslexia (a neurological condition that makes reading either extremely difficult or impossible for those afflicted). He was embarrassed about this fact & used to hide it from his film peers.

Quotes from Marlon Brando's Characters

    1. Colonel Kurtz: I worry that my son might not understand what I've tried to be. And if I were to be killed, Willard, I would want someone to go to my home and tell my son everything ? everything I did, everything you saw ? because there's nothing that I detest more than the stench of lies. And if you understand me, Willard, you will do this for me.

    1. Colonel Kurtz: Did they say why, Willard, why they want to terminate my command?
    2. Capt. Benjamin Willard: I was sent on a classified mission, sir.
    3. Colonel Kurtz: It's no longer classified, is it? Did they tell you?
    4. Capt. Benjamin Willard: They told me that you had gone totally insane, and that your methods were unsound.
    5. Colonel Kurtz: Are my methods unsound?
    6. Capt. Benjamin Willard: I don't see any method at all, sir.
    7. Colonel Kurtz: I expected someone like you. What did you expect? Are you an assassin?
    8. Capt. Benjamin Willard: I'm a soldier.
