Editorial Reviews

The New York Daily News
"Brando Unzipped is the definitive gossip guide to the late, great actor's life."
Bookmarks
"Yummy! That sums up Porter's titillatingly tabloidish account of Marlon Brando's eccentric, sex-centric years. The author barely pauses to take a deep breath as he dishes-drawing on 50 years of conversations with dozens of Brando's intimates-about the late, great actor's personal life.

But there's way more to this biography than sex: Porter writes with an insider's astuteness about the actor's movie career, critical passages that provide welcome depth. But it's no exaggeration to report that practically every page discloses a fascinating tidbit-about Liberace successfully seducing Dean, for example, but failing to seduce Brando. This is an irresistibly flamboyant romp of a read."

Gay Times (London)
"He was considered one of the most dynamic and imposing actors of his generation, but as author Darwin Porter finds, it was just the acting world that Marlon Brando conquered. It was the actors, too. "
The Sunday Times (London)
"The contents of this biography are for the most part compelling, reflecting the underground quality of much of the information, and there is an astounding revelation on almost every page. If you enjoy gossip and are not too precious about presentation, this book is certainly worth reading. Of course, if you enjoy salacious gossip and tales of sexual abandon, you will find yourself in hog heaven."
Frontiers Magazine
"Entertainingly Outrageous."
The Georgia Literary Association
"Original and at times amazing, BRANDO UNZIPPED documents a life of gargantuan excess that only Hollywood could have produced."
Women's Weekly (Australia)
"Astonishing...Veteran reporter Darwin Porter paints a portrait of Brando that's as blunt, uncompromising, and X-rated as the man himself."
Daily Express (London)
"The tempestuous affair with James Dean is just one of dozens of homosexual relationships, flings, and one-night stands in which Brando indulged during a lifetime of sexual voraciousness, according to a shocking new book that is sparking a major reassessment of Brando's legacy as one of Hollywood's most macho lotharios."
Le Journal du Dimanche (Paris)
"Brando Unzipped, from Blood Moon, contains major revelations about the tumultuous love affairs of the American actor who died in July of 2004. Its author, Darwin Porter, spent 50 years assembling meticulously documented source material. Amazingly, revealed for the first time are details about the involvement of Brando with Edith Piaf in the early 1950s. Three days of lovemaking and carnal excess began with a misunderstanding..."

Brando Unzipped: Bad Boy, Megastar, Sexual Outlaw 3.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

Straight away when reading the first page you can tell this book is total trash. Although some of the content may have stemmed from some sort of truth, it just really is trashy gossip, dreamt up for the reader's entertainment. I wish I had actually been thorough when reading reviews about this book before I actually bought it because it is a waste of money. I should have known better lol. Something I thought was going to be exciting to read, ended up being such a disappointment. A lot of the content, particularly the descriptions of Brando's supposed sexual encounters were so ridiculous I laughed out loud. It also mainly focuses on these supposed sexual encounters and not really on Brando himself. So if you are looking for a book that actually focuses on Marlon Brando in his personal life and who he was as a person DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! You are better off buying his autobiography - Songs my mother taught me. As laughable as this book was, I was a fool for buying it. Don't do the same!
