Marlon Brando, the rebellious prodigy who electrified a generation and forever transformed the art of screen acting, yet whose erratic career, obstinate eccentricities and recurring tragedies prevented him from fully realizing the promise of his early genius, has died. He was 80.
He died at an undisclosed Los Angeles hospital Thursday, his lawyer, David J. Seeley, said today. The cause of death was being withheld.
