One of the greatest actors in film was a high school dropout. But he didn't choose to leave — the Nebraska-born actor was kicked out.
Marlon Brando attended Libertyville High School in Illinois but his roguish behavior got him in a bit of trouble.
"I always had friends, boys as well as girls, but I was anathema to many of my teachers and the parents of many of my friends, some of whom treated me as if I were poison . . . I was a bad student, chronic truant and all-around incorrigible," Brando has said. "I was forever being sent to the principal's office to be disciplined."
His parents then sent him to Shattuck Military Academy, but after more bad behavior, Brando was expelled once and for all.
Brando moved to NYC in 1943 to study at the American Theatre Wing Professional School.
