Marlon Brando Double Bill

MUBI Special

We are celebrating the anniversary of Marlon Brando’s birth presenting a double feature of the master of the Method and, very possibly, the greatest actor of all time.

The Wild One

Laslo Benedek United States, 1953

For Brando’s birthday we step back to one of his earliest—and most iconic—roles, embodying the swaggering masculinity that made him a star. So much of 50s America seems wrapped up in this meaty, mumbling, irrepressible outsider. The hipness of these biker gangs has passed, but their legends live on.

The Chase

Arthur Penn United States, 1966

To celebrate Marlon Brando’s birthday this week, we present a double feature of the master of the Method. One film before directing Bonnie & Clyde, Arthur Penn was already questioning American myths in this neo-western where Sheriff Brando struggles over the sin and violence of a Texas town.
