American actor Marlon Brando was a part of the Hollywood entertainment industry for six decades. The long list of accolades he has won includes two Academy Awards. His role as Vito earned him his second Academy Award which must be rewarding for Brando considering the many flops, he had delivered in the ten years before The Godfather.
Marlon Brando was not just a name that could attract audiences to the theatres, it was also one that could get actors to join a film’s cast. One instance of this was the crime-comedy The Freshman in which the sole reason Matthew Broderick agreed to act was that he would get to share a screen with Brando. However, there was a point when the One-Eyed Jacks actor decided to badmouth his own film.
