In 2001-2, Hollywood legend Marlon Brando (1924-2004) conceived the idea of presenting a series of instructional videos about acting, giving a personal Hollywood masterclass to the public. Acting classes on the program were hosted and attended by Hollywood greats, including the likes of Jon Voight, Whoopi Goldberg, Robin Williams, Leonardo di Caprio and Sean Penn. The classes proved controversial to the acting elite he invited, with Brando inviting members of the public to join the stars, dressing as a drag queen and clashing with director Tony Kaye, which ultimately derailed the project.
A unique collection of Hollywood memorabilia in very good condition.
