Brando's madness, Val Kilmer's ego, and the folly of Dr Moreau

Fabulous account of the shooting of “The Island of Dr Moreau”, one of the best nutso Brando movies:

  <blockquote>        <p>With changes being made to the script on a daily basis, actually learning it seemed pointless, so Brando had his dialogue read aloud to him line by line via an earpiece during filming. Sometimes the signal would be drowned out by a local police scanner, and Thewlis would later reminisce about Moreau shouting in the middle of a scene: “There’s a robbery at Woolworths”. </p>  </blockquote>
