Marlon Brando is no more

Los Angeles, July 2
Marlon Brando, who revolutionised American acting with his method performances in “Streetcar Named Desire” and “On the Waterfront” and went on to create the iconic characterisation of Don Vito Corleone in “The Godfather”, has died. He was 80.

Brando died at an undisclosed Los Angeles hospital yesterday, attorney David J. Seeley said today.

The cause of death was being withheld, Seeley said, noting the actor “was a very private man”.

Brando, whose unpredictable behaviour made him equally fascinating off the screen, was acclaimed the greatest actor of his generation, a two-time Academy Award winner who influenced some of the best actors of the generation that followed, among them Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Jack Nicholson. — AP
