Marlon Brando and Bob Hope fight over Oscar

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.
