He never liked Elvis, so he can blow it out of his ass.

He may have not liked Elvis, but that doesn't change the fact that, at his best, he was arguably the greatest film actor of the post war 20th century. De Niro, Pacino, Nicholson are his disciples.

I don't think Marlon liked any singer. Did you see Guys and Dolls where HE sang? That alone would put anyone off singers!! By the way I used to have that record (Guys and Dolls with Brando singing. I think it was "Luck be a Lady." I also have the VHS. But then I have the VHS of a LOT of musical comedies of old. I have to watch them when my husband is asleep (which he is now; hmmm, maybe...) Anyway Elvis liked him!

Brando was disdainful of any kind of popular entertainment. In public, he always expressed embarrassment at the fact that he was an actor which he considered to be a waste of life.

In private though, some Brando intimates have revealed that he was secretly proud of his best work and in his old age used to regale them with recreations of Terry Malloy, Stanley Kowalski et al.
