Brando primarily agreed to star in Mutiny on the Bounty because he was obsessed with sampling the favors of Tahitian women.
Marlon Brando was a genius in terms of his acting ability, but in his personal life, his behavior was wildly erratic. Prone to crazy mood swings, he could be an obnoxious bully one moment and a charming, caring individual the next. Only one woman managed to withstand being with him over the decades: his longtime personal assistant Alice Marchak, who became his friend, advisor, secretary and in his sad final days, only companion. Brando's life was one of soaring triumphs and great wealth, but in the end he had squandered everything he had. Grotesquely overweight and penniless, he fully planned on creating a line of merchandise that he would hawk on the QVC shopping network while dressed in drag. Death prevented him from participating in this final indignity. Marchak's new book Me and Marlon reveals shocking details about the bizarre life of the reluctant Oscar winner - including his self-professed addiction to sex. Click here to read an extended excerpt.
