Joseph L. Mankiewicz


The Marlon Brando Collection
Directed by: Joseph L. Mankiewicz
(Warner Home Video)
When Brando died, the eulogies remembered his work in The Godfather, A Streetcar Named Desire and On the Waterfront. But the second tier work assembled in this Warner Bros. set invites rediscovery. From fighting tyranny in the highly criticized, but still enthralling Mutiny on the Bounty to playing Marc Antony in Julius Caesar, projecting gay lust in Reflections in a Golden Eye and turning Japanese in The Teahouse of the August Moon, the collection uncovers new dimensions of one of the screen’s great performers.
