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."

Towards the second hour, an unknowing policeman prides himself on having worked in a film with Marlon Brando long ago. It is an allusion to Queimada.


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.
