The young actor's turn as the animalistic auto-parts salesman Stanley Kowalski in the 1951 film "A Streetcar Named Desire" made the 27-year-old Brando a star. A skilled method actor, Brando's wardrobe was key to developing the character. A brute, blue collar kind of guy, Kowalski would of course wear jeans with his sweat-soaked undershirts. What we really appreciate is the touch of Southern gentlemanliness in the spectator shoes. Well played.
