  • Listen to Me Marlon (NR)

    Listen to Me Marlon, an engrossing documentary portrait of Marlon Brando, has more than its share of awkward moments, but none more so than its 1955 clip of the 30-year-old actor appearing on Edward R. Murrow's CBS interview series Person to Person alongside his 60-year-old father, Marlon Brando Sr. When Murrow asks the father if he's proud of his son—who has just won an Oscar for On the Waterfront—Marlon Sr. replies, "Well, as an actor, not too proud, but as a man, why quite proud." more...
