"When people think about Marlon Brando they think of the movie star; the hunk; the scandals. Susan L. Mizruchi finds the Brando others have missed: the man who collected four thousand books; the man who rewrote scripts, trimming his lines to make them sharper; the man who consciously used his body and employed the objects around him to create believable characters; the man who used his fame to foster Native American and civil rights. A complex person whose intelligence belies the high-school dropout. Brando's embrace of foreign cultures and outsiders led to brilliant performances in unusual roles -- a gay man, an Asian, and a German soldier -- to foster empathy on a global scale and to test himself.
