Exclusive Clip from 'Meet Marlon Brando,' Maysles Brothers Doc, Available for the First Time

“Meet Marlon Brando,” the documentary by Albert Maysles and David Maysles, will be available for the first time since its 1965 theatrical release on Fandor starting tomorrow.

The short black and white film, which features the actor as he is interviewed by a series of journalists, premiered at the New York Film Festival in 1966. It has aired in France, but until now has not been available in its entirety in the U.S.

“It’s sort of an unwritten code that if you don’t cooperate with those people and tell them about the intimacies of your personal life, you’ve broken the rule and have to be choked publicly and chastised for it or chublicly plastised for it, if you like. That’s the way of the world out there,” Brando tells a a comely young interviewer. “You’re so pretty, I’m distracted,” he says, flirtatiously.

Indiewire has an exclusive clip from the film, which you can see below:
