r Actor Val Kilmer recalls the life and career of Hollywood heavyweight Marlon Brando , who died in 2004, aged 80, following an off-and-on career that yielded two Oscars (out of eight nominations, four of them in consecutive years: 1952-55), three Baftas and even a Razzie
Worst Supporting Actor award for The Island of Dr Moreau (1996), which also starred tonight's host, Val Kilmer. The programme explores Brando's unconventional upbringing and the unorthodox and massively influential film career that followed, with the actor championing - for better or worse - the acting style of Konstantin Stanislavsky. Contributors include film directors Bernardo Bertolucci , Francis Ford Coppola and Arthur Penn , screenwriter Bud Schulberg , biographer Peter Manso and Ellen Adler , daughter of drama teacher and Brando mentor Stella Adler.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
