BRANDO, Marlon

(1924–2004)
   Sometimes considered the greatest actor in U.S. cinema history, the Nebraska-born Brando dominated the film industry throughout his career. He won two Oscars and was nominated for a best actor Oscar for one of his Westerns, Viva Zapata! (1952). He directed and starred in the 1961 One-Eyed Jacks, which costarred Katy Jurado, and starred in The Apaloosa (1966) and The Missouri Breaks (1976). While Brando’s professional reputation rested on non-Westerns, like most great actors of his era, Brando proved adept in the Western genre.
