Long DescriptionMarlon Brando was one of the most private superstars in modern times, who only stepped into the lime light to promote a new film or causes close to his heart. While several books exist based on that material, there has never been a personal biography with a first-hand view of the inner sanctum until George Englund's "Marlon Brando: The Naked Actor". Having been repeatedly urged to write by Brando himself (as he had been given his first Hollywood break by Brando), Englund started this memoir in earnest a few months before Brando died on 1 July 2004 in order to capture the real Brando behind the star. Looking back in time, Englund writes down his incisive memories from when he befriended the young Marlon in 1954 then on the cusp of his meteoric rise as the sex symbol equivalent of Marilyn Monroe and the beginning of becoming a close confidant for almost fifty years from whom Brando sought frank advice. Englund draws on stories from Jackie Kennedy to Marilyn Monroe that only he and Brando knew. But he also shows how the seeds of decline and suspicion were there from the start. From the stories a young actor emerges who was beautiful in every way - driven by his instinctive talent to break new ground, athletic, muscular, seductive, intelligent and generous. Gradually, however, Brando turned into the very person whom he loathed his father and humiliated at every turn. Overweight and trying to diet on a regime of his own invention, he was overcome by inertia at the end of his life in all - even his famed powers of seduction - but his talent.

As our site has grown, we have gotten more requests for data and image downloads. When we were small we handled these by hand and then later added a little automation. Now we have cleaned it up and made it easier to use.

Today we made it easier to see what it is we have to offer by cleaning up the look of the download page. We present more information to users before they log in to the system.

We cleaned up the purchase section of the page a great deal. Our downloads are not free (except for the sample data) and in the past, each download had to be purchased one at a time. now you can select multiple items and pay just once.

We made our pricing considerably easier to understand. We have always given discounts if you have already made a purchase. But it could be a little confusing because if you hand't purchased, you would see one price (the full price). But after your purchase you could return to the download page and see different prices. This confused people and they though that they over paid. Now the full price is displayed clearly all the time and instead of showing reduced prices, we now list a DISCOUNT as part of your order. And in your transaction history, your discount will always be visible to you.

Finally, we made it easier to get to your download once you have made a purchase. Right in your transaction history, the links to your downloads are easier to understand. When you download a file, the system will know if you have successfully downloaded, you are in the process of downloading, or if you ran into issues while downloading (or canceled). The status of your download is clearly identified.

We hope that these changes make the download page easier for you to use and understand. Feel free to send us your feedback about the page.
