    Default Book claims Marlon Brando and James Dean had an S&M affair

    Spoiler alert: this is is a pretty long article, which also delves into Dean's relationship with Walt Disney and George Cukor. Feel free to read the rest in the link below
    Marlon Brando and James Dean had 'secret master and slave S&M relationship' | Daily Mail Online



    James Dean and Marlon Brando had a secret sadomasochistic relationship fueled by the Godfather star's ego and insatiable desire for control, a new book claims.

    The two men would meet up for master and servant style sex sessions where Dean asked to be burned with cigarettes, it alleges.

    Friends revealed that Brando was so in charge that he made Dean watch him have sex with strangers who he had just met as part of a twisted mind game.

    Brando never reciprocated Dean's love and played a 'cat-and-mouse game' with his younger lover for his own amusement.
    Friends said that Dean was like a 'puppy dog' who would loiter outside Brando's apartment in the cold - in the desperate hope his idol would invite him in for sex.

    Dean and Brando were two of the icons of their generation but their dark personal currents drew them together, the book says.


    The two men both studied under acting coach Lee Strasberg, they were both discovered by director Elia Kazan and they were both intense, brooding characters.

    In some ways Dean was considered the successor to Brando and only got his roles in Rebel Without a Cause and East of Eden because Brando turned them both down.

    In James Dean: Tomorrow Never Comes, which is due out next on Blood Moon Productions, authors Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince reveal that their relationship was far more complex than had been thought.

    The book is based on conversations with sources and veteran gossip journalists who had known Dean before his death in 1955 at the age of 24.

    They reveal that the first time Brando met Dean was not on the set of East of Eden in 1954 as he claimed in his own memoir, 'Songs My Mother Taught Me'.

    I really believe that Jimmy fell in love with Brando that year. As for Brando, I don't think he ever loved Jimmy. I met Brando only three times and each time he was with Jimmy. In my opinion, Brando was in love with Brando.Alec Wilder, composer

    Instead it was in 1949 when, after an extended stay in Paris, Brando flew back to New York to make a public appearance at the Actors Studio where he had studied under Strasberg.

    Following his lead role in A Streetcar Named Desire on both the stage and the screen Brando was being idolized and wanted to give a speech at his alma mater.

    At the back of the audience was a young man who Brando would later describe to Bobby Lewis, one of the founders of the actor's studio, as staring at him so intently he 'felt my skin burning'.

    Brando thought that Dean had a 'childlike sincerity' and thought Dean was in love with him - and he was right.
    Afterwards Dean introduced himself by telling Brando that he was his 'greatest fan' and that he was confused about many things but 'not confused in my admiration for you'.

    The two men made small talk about Dean's ability to predict days that people would die - he got his own wrong - before a long pause when they looked into each other's eyes.

    Brando leaned in and kissed him, the book says.

    Prince and Porter claim that Brando downplayed the extent of his relationship with Dean In Songs My Mother Taught Me.

    But it was quite apparent for their celebrity friends who included playwright Tennessee Williams, composer Alec Wilder and Rogers Brackett, a Manhattan advertising executive who was Dean's on-off boyfriend.

    Dean is said to have told Brackett that Brando was 'completely in charge of our love-making'.

    Brackett recalled Dean saying: 'I got to make love to Brando, which is something I've been longing to do every since I first heard about him….he told me what he wanted and I went along for the ride.'

    Stella Adler, the actress and acclaimed acting teacher, said that after that she saw Brando 'everywhere' with Dean.
    Wilder said: 'They were definitely a couple. Of course, the words "sexual fidelity" would be unknown in each of their vocabularies.

    'Jimmy and I used to sit and talk for hours in my room at the Algonquin Hotel (in New York). He kept me abreast of the affair.
    'I really believe that Jimmy fell in love with Brando that year. As for Brando, I don't think he ever loved Jimmy.

    'I met Brando only three times and each time he was with Jimmy. In my opinion, Brando was in love with Brando'.
    Dean ditched his trademark white t-shirt and jeans and started to dress smarter and more like Brando.

    Stanley Haggert, another of Dean's friends, said that Dean never had any money and that he thought Brando 'wouldn't lend him a cent'.

    Right, apparently Dean, another young, unknown actor until his final year or so, managed to have flings with Brando, Walt Disney and they mentioned Steve McQueen somewhere else. How does this even happen? And then there's Dean having this unrequited love affair with Pier Angeli, his mentor and whoever else he boned. How did he find the time? Meh, I lean more towards him being bisexual but an opportunistic one. He was young, just breaking into Hollywood and the times were starting to change.

    None of this would surprise me if it were true. It's not that unknown or shocking for a young hottie looking for a break to latch onto someone more successful that they idolise. Sounds like something out of Hollywood Babylon.

    I think it was that moron Kenneth Anger who called James the Human Ashtray. At least that is where I read it. The books he wrote turned out to be full of lies and half truths and doctored photos. He also claimed that Jean Harlow and Joan Crawford posed for porn pictures. Maybe Joan did, but Jean did not. Anyhow, the pictures he claimed were of them were not.

    The more I read about Marlon Brando, the more he comes across as selfish and exploitative with a number of people.

    He was a serious narcissist. My jaw dropped when I read that he and some of the film crew from Mutiny on the Bounty gave the Tahitian girl extras several STDs. The film company had to pay for treatment. And he had really fucked up relationships with his children and grandchildren.

    Dean absolutely idolized Brando.

    Brando visited Dean and the rest of the cast of East of Eden.

    gotta say it would be fucking hot if true. both guys back then were seriously great looking.
