THE CONTENDER The Story of Marlon Brando

by | Read by Will Damron

Biography & Memoir • 22 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Mann's well-researched biography of the complex and acclaimed actor Marlon Brando, well known for his social and political causes, is skillfully narrated by Will Damron. Damron's measured baritone is a perfect match to the sprawling artistic arcs of the subject's life. His quiet and intimate narration style quickly captures the listener's attention and easily maintains interest. The work emphasizes Brando's depression, pain, and loneliness and discusses his alcoholic parents as having set his perspectives and sensibilities early in his life. Brando's many films, successful and not successful, are explored only within the context of the drama of his lived experience. This is especially enjoyable listening for American cinema fans.
