The author is a joke. Granted, there may be some facts, and much of it seems probable, but he stole many of his stories from Anna Kashfi's book, and did not give her credit. She was the one who heard Brando use the word "Noble Tool", and it is doubtful that he said it ALL the time, or many of the other brutish dialouge the author gave him.

I am sure he was wild beyond imaginiation, but when did he have the time for all of this? He would have to be Superman! The printed layout of this book is poor
Super seedy & juicy.
Brando basically fucked EVERYONE!
Though it covers less than a third of its subject's life, Darwin Porter's Brando Unzipped is more informative and enjoyable to read than most of its predecessor biographies.

Treating the twenty years that happened after a young bisexual Brando in shrunken-on jeans first arrived in New York City, this book is a detailed account of one of the greatest runs of sexual promiscuity in American history. For almost two decades, Brando had casual sex with anyone he wanted, male or female. If nothing else
I enjoyed this book a lot. Included is a certain photograph of Mr Brando to which Kenneth Anger refers to in the back pages of Hollywood Babylon II that he could not print, assuming it was because Brando was alive and would have sued. The existence of this legendary photo makes me suspect that this book is not all lies. After all Brando was a free spirit and pioneer and Hollywood is notorious for its casting couchs. His success came to him early in his career, and as said by some fellow reviewer ...more
beautiful trash. Sorry Darwin if you think I am a bit unfair, but this is pinch of salt stuff. Great read though, and I laughed deliciously to it. Big fan of your books. To all others read the Paul Newman book too. (All-time greatest actor by the way, not just America).

Unlike many biographies that track their subject’s life in a linear line from birth to death, BRANDO Unzipped: A Revisionist and Very Private Look at America's Greatest Actor, opens with Marlon Brondo’s arrival in New York City. He was just nineteen. He wore a red fedora and declared, “I want to knock New York on its ass.”
Brando meant that figuratively and literally. It’s the literal part Darwin Porter highlights in this exposé of one of the world’s best-known actors.
Porter tracks Brando’s li
As outrageous as many of the stories read, I believe they are mostly true. Brando saw being a high paid movie star as the perfect vehicle to fuel his passion for sex, food, travel, intellectual curiosity, civil rights, Native American rights, etc. After watching his acting in films like Last Tango in Paris and The Nightcomers, the stories in this book do not seem like a stretch. Most of his movies outside of One Eyed Jacks and Mutiny on the Bounty only took 2-3 months to film. During his down ti ...more

A lot of "inside information" about Mr. Brando's sex life.
I started skimming for the "good bits" partway through Chapter 1. That's never a good sign. The author takes his job as cultural dirty old man a little too seriously. The book seems to be a litany of stories about Brando's cock, where he put it, and what it tasted like. (Okay, I made up the last detail, but you get the point.) I thought I would enjoy its erm... blunt... approach, but... uh... no. I believe I have a small collection of Darwin Porter books that are now up for grabs. LOL

Finished Brando Unzipped and it was very entertaining and fun read. Brando was quite a man, if you believe all the dirt in this biography. Just a good reading enjoyment ...a raw exposure of Hollywood and the Broadway Theater of the 1940's and 1950's .
All about his affairs with many star both in NYC' Broadway theatre and Hollywood., male or female, he apparently liked both and lots of them.
Michael Berish
This guy was always noted as a maverick, but after reading this book, the guy was a sexual pervert. He may have been a great actor, but as a person he wasn't much. This book really, explicitly goes into his life (sex and all). It's a tell all, if their ever was one.
If even half of what's written in this book is true, it's a real eye-opener. As an actor, no matter how rubbish the movie was, he was always interesting.
Deserves 10 stars for being soooooo salacious!
