Let's go back to the Golden Globe Awards of February 24, 1955, at the Ambassador Hotel’s Cocoanut Grove, in Los Angeles, when Marlon Brando received a Golden Globe as Best Actor of 1954 for Elia Kazan's On the Waterfront. The following year Brando would be presented with a special award as World Film Favorite-Male.

In the documentary Listen To Me Marlon, Brando’s life and career as narrated by his own voice, recorded over the years as both an intimate diary and a self-hypnosis technique.
