Marlon Brando In Rebel Without A Cause? TV Dinners?

Ed here: Today Movietone published a list of prominent actors' screen tests. Scroll down to find Brando's audition for Rebel Without A Cause. I've never seen or heard Brando like this. Very young, not so confident. Some of the other tests are interesting, too.

My buddy Harry Shannon was nice enough to remind me of one of the questionable joys of boyhood.

I am still eating them at lunch despite warnings of heating plastic trays in a microwave. How sad is that?
