The Way It's Never Been Done Before: My Friendship With Marlon Brando. George Englund on IMDb. BNF: cb14678238c (data).

Marlon Brando was the brightest, boldest, and most iconoclastic acting talent of our time. But while his courage and imagination as an artist brought applause and attention from around the world, Brando shunned nearly everything that goes with celebrity status. He was one of the most reclusive personalities in modern times and a legend beyond compare. He was also an equal opportunity provocateur - a dazzling baffler - be it on stage, on screen, or in his private life. Always true to his nature, he never failed to surprise.

It is perplexing to me how most people, especially those who've reviewed this book, can be so in awe of a celebrity, without "getting" how cruel and even life-killing a so-called "sensitive" actor, Mr Brando, was to many others. Brando "stood up for" some causes, but did he treat others sensitively in his daily life? Not in my book. I read Rita Moreno's book, and she too was "addicted" to Mr Brando. A shame the lessons some of us must go through in order to finally learn we must say "No" to some very manipulative, selfish people. But Mr Englund did not say "no" permanently to Brando.

Mr Englund's writing was very good. But I have felt disappointed, to say the least, that he thought it was "noble" to put up with wrong behaviors toward himself and others, in order to be a "friend." Something he wrote of near the end of his book, really hit me hard. Objectively, I absolutely cannot "see" the "greatness" of Brando as a person: Irresponsible, self-centered, cruel. The book was well-written. But I don't feel that their friendship was noble. It was very very "co-dependent" for Mr Englund to have stuck with Brando all the years that he did.

I like the personal aspect of this book, the relationship between the author and Marlon Brando. Marlon Brando had such charisma that he not only got what he needed, he also got what he wanted and some of what he wanted wasn't so good for him. His brilliance, intelligence and interest in just about everything is this world, made him a very unique man. He was a loving father, when he was with his children but he wasn't with them most of the time. They didn't come first in his life, neither did his wives or numerous girlfriends. The craft came first, even though he was loathe to admit it, but the research he did for each film was lengthy and he was constantly rewriting and revising scripts. He was an adventurer and citizen of the world, having traveled throughout the world. All in all, he was a good man, he spent a lot of time for causes in believed in, going out of his way to try and help people. He was generous to his family and put a niece through law school. Till the end he was thinking about projects both in the movies and maintaining his Polynesian Island in its pristine, natural condition.

Two close friends sharing the drama of their childhood. To be noticed and loved by his parents Marlon had to change the world then became a recluse. So much suffering at the end of his life, love suffocation with food addiction. Deeply sensitive and emotional, he shared the human condition with his soul. The world loved him for that.

Would love to contact George Englund. I met with him several times when I worked for George Chasin, then Jay Kanter at MCA. He would often come with Brando Jr. I knew Brando Sr. quite well and do not agree with some of the comments. But, then again, I'm a girl..... About Englund's book, I was quite impressed with the integrity and fidelity to a long and arduous friendship. Just proves the act of love can be exhausting, yet deeply fulfilling in bits and pieces. I cried about Brando and the disposition he was born with, not really anything he could help. His agony was impenetrable, yet there was also a lot of goodness. And Englund did a superb job of showing warts and roses. At first I thought he was exploitative, but the strength Englund demonstrated in the relationship, the camaraderie and loyalty, while telling the truth, really impressed me. I'm an avid reader and quite critical of most writers. Being weaned on Dostoevsky, Capote, Thomas Wolf, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and my major crush, editor extraordinaire Maxwell Perkins, George Englund made the cut for excellence! Bravo! Quite brave of you to disclose so much personal history about both of you.

After reading this book, I had to respect the author for surviving the friendship of Marlon Brando. With Brando's keen perception and ability to read people, he stripped friends and acquaintances of their defenses in record time. There is one part describing Marlon's encounter with a cop that is worth the price of the book by itself. The book is both amusing and sad but even the sad parts have a humorous side. I think Mr. Englund tells us more than we need to know about Brando's final days. This part is indeed plain spoken and it's a tribute to the author's writing skills that it was not offensive. For some reason, no matter what we read about Brando, it seems we admire him more. I think it has something to do with the fact he was real and human. And he comes across as both in this book written by his friend.
