Cinema Paradiso (1988)
While staring at the projected image of his love interest in his bedroom, Salvatore Di Vita says:
"You probably don't believe me, but I'm going to become the leading man in your life. Sure, I don't look like Marlon Brando, but look at me, really look at me. Am I really so ugly? So should I try once more? Maybe It'll succeed. What do you say?"
The Geisha Boy (1958)
In a direct reference to Joshua Logan's hit 1957 movie Sayonara, when meeting Kimi for the first time, Jerry states, "You're beautiful...I can understand now why Marlon Brando dug this place.".
Raging Bull (1980)
Jake La Motta refers to Brando's famous "I coulda been a contender" speech while sitting in his dressing room staring at his mirror (a la Taxi Driver) just before his stand up show:
Jake: "Some people aren’t that lucky… like the one Brando played in “On the Waterfront“, a down-and-outer."
Twin Peaks (1990)
In a conversation between Donna Hayward and Audrey Horne.
Donna: "Have you heard of One-Eyed Jacks?"
Audrey: "Isn't that that Western with Marlon Brando?"
La Dolce Vita (1960)
Reg Strikes Back - Elton John
The Day Today (1994)
In a news story:
Chris Morris: "The American actor Marlon Brando has been sold today in an auction at Sotheby's. Brando, who starred in films like Apocalypse Now and Superman, was part of a collection of international works of art which attracted interest from all over the world. He was sold in the large wooden chair he has occupied for the last three years to the Vatican, at just under the expected price of two and a quarter million dollars. It's believed he will be installed in St Peter's later next month."
Waiting for God (1990)
Mentioned in two episodes. Once in "Harvey the Priest" when Diana provides her own thoughts on Geoffrey's transformation to impress his wife in a conversation with Tom.
Diana: "[about Geoffrey] He thinks he's Fatboy Higgins, the last of the easy riders."
Tom: "No, no, that was just to amuse Marion."
Diana: "Ah ha ha. Not any more. He believes he's Fatboy in his own fat head. He's currently slobbing around our place looking like Marlon Brando on Valium."
The other in "The Hip Operation" where Tom offers his quaint view on Diana's arrival to the church with other residents of Bayview after having just been discharged from hospital.
Woman: "What is it?"
Tom: "It's Diano Brando and the Wild Bunch."
Limiting myself to popular media outside of his own work and his biographies obviously.
