Storyline

Journalists from all over America meet Marlon Brando in a New York hotel room to interview him about his new film, Morituri. Seeing this as an opportunity to let the legendary actor promote the film, they find Brando unwilling to talk about it, instead he is more interested in larking about and turning on the charm when being interviewed by a former winner of the Miss USA competition.

Meet Marlon Brando (1966)

**** (out of 4)

Terrific documentary covering Marlon Brando's 1965 press junket for the film Morituri, which has the actor sitting in a hotel lobby and answering questions from various reporters. In my opinion Brando was the greatest actor to ever grace the movie screen and he was also one of the most fascinating people to listen to. He has several interviewers asking him questions ranging from various subjects including his films, Civil Rights, the American Indian and other social issues and it's great to see how he tackles these various subjects. Needless to say, he's really not interested in talking about his movies or what a great actor he is. He certainly doesn't do his film any justice as he either doesn't want to talk about it or throws mild insults at it. The real charm is seeing how Brando talks to the reporter depending on whether they're female or male. With the male reporters he doesn't really take them too serious and blows off the majority of their questions. With the females, he turns on that classic charm and spends most of the interview flirting with them. This makes for some great laughs and it's easy to see why the women would fall to their feet for him. The film runs 25-minutes and there's not a boring moment anywhere in it and it's a shame there couldn't have been more to see.
