Pictured here is a 23-year old Marlon Brando, who is now widely credited with bringing realism to film acting.

The actor and director is mostly remembered for his Academy Award-winning performances as Terry Malloy in On the Waterfront (1954) and Vito Corleone in The Godfather (1972). But he was also in classics such as A Streetcar Named Desire (1951), Julius Caesar (1953), The Wild One (1953), Guys and Dolls (1955), Last Tango in Paris (1972), and Apocalypse Now (1979).

Brando was also quite the activist, most notably was his involvement with the Civil Rights Movement. But he stood by many noble causes including several Native American Movements.
