Meeting an Actor's Acquaintance

Hey y'all---I've got a question for y'all. If one were to approach the films of a particular actor, which one would be the best one to ease into her work? Especially when that actor is Marlon Brando?

You see, I had wanted to watch Last Tango in Paris, but after reading as many reviews as I could find and seeing a few clips and stills, something told me that Tango wouldn't be a good "intro" film into Brando's work. A couple of years ago I saw Burn! at a film screening that was part of a group study, and I really enjoyed that film. I saw The Young Lions on cable TV when I was in my late teens. I've tried to watch The Godfather before, but I didn't like it at all (maybe I need to watch it again).

Which Brando film would you suggest watching before seeing Tango? And please be careful, I haven't seen many of these films before, so don't spoil 'em for me!

By the way, this photo of Marlon was taken by Carl Van Vechten in 1948, and it's a fair use photo.

He sure fine, ain't he?

I'm sure by now you've seen On The Waterfront. But check out his portrayal of Mark Antony in Julius Caesar.
