Rebel Without a Part

Sometimes I forget just how incredible Marlon Brandon once was.

A new documentary, "Listen to Me, Marlon," features this scene above, in which we see a 1947 screen test that Brando, intoxicatingly handsome and seeming almost embarrassed by it, performed for Warner Bros., reading lines for the role that James Dean eventually landed in "Rebel Without a Cause." This was three years before his screen debut in 1950’s The Men. (Via Entertainment Weekly)
