He asked to personally thank me, and said, ‘Not many people would be so honest.’ Anna Wintour also thanked me.” She must have been very concerned." - via

Marlon Brando Is A Wild Child At Heart

Marlon Brando portrayed Johnny Strabbler, a leader of the Black Rebels Motorcycle Club in the film, "The Wild One". Released in 1953, two years prior, I read up that Brando had made quite thee fashion splash with his "t-shirt ensembles in the 1951 cinema classic "A Streetcar Named Desire". But it's his black leather motorcycle jacket topped with jeans and a plain t-shirt that really set into a blaze his future iconic style for dandy men everywhere.

Don't forget his yummy looking hat which reminds me of a modern day police office here on the west coast. It is said that his "Triumph Thunderbird 6T motorcyle" which appears in the photo as well, inspired the like of James Dean who after watching this film, bought a similar motorcycle.

A Look At His Craft.

An interview from 1953.

A scene from one of Marlon Brando's first ever films he made and a first film for me that I had ever seen him in! "On the Waterfront".
