This iconic Black & White image captured by Frank Worth of Marlon Brando & Bob Hope - ‘It’s Mine’
Bob Hope was MC at the 27th Annual Academy Awards and here jokes around as he presents Marlon Brando with his award for 'On The Waterfront'.
Marlon Brando, acclaimed by many as the greatest American actor of all time, made his screen debut in "The Men" (1950).
A troubled youth, Brando had been expelled from a number of schools including military academy. In 1943, Brando arrived in New York and enrolled on a course at the Dramatic Workshop of the New York School of Social Research. Several acclaimed theatrical performances followed, including his landmark interpretation of the loutish Stanley Kowalski in Tennessee Williams' "A Streetcar Named Desire" (1947), a role he was to brilliantly repeat on film in 1951.
His first Oscar nomination was for Elia Kazan's powerfully disturbing "On The Waterfront" (1954), a complex portrayal of Terry Malloy, the washed-up boxer turned mobster stooge. The following decade, Brando's career hit the doldrums.
