Marlon Brando

Age: 80

Academy Award–winning actor considered a singular practitioner of Method acting. His inward-looking style and rough sex appeal established him as one of Hollywood's most respected actors. He's best known for two films made in 1972, The Godfather and Last Tango in Paris. He won the Best Actor Oscar for The Godfather but refused the award in protest of Hollywood's treatment of Native Americans. His other films include On the Waterfront and Apocalypse Now.

Died: Los Angeles, July 1, 2004
