... titles (5): A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Viva Zapata!, Man on a Tightrope, Wild River, and America, America. Bad news is it'll cost you plenty and comes with lots of already-released Kazan movies. Good news: a made-for-PBS Scorsese documentary that will air in October is also included. Info here: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-talk/579046-new-elia-kazan-giftset-never-released-dvd-films-november.html

A Letter to Elia will air nationally on PBS as part of the “American Masters” series on October 4, 2010, accompanied by a companion short documentary featuring some of the country’s most noteworthy actors and directors talking about Kazan’s influence on their work and on the American film industry.

Of the collection, 5 films have never before been released on DVD: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Viva Zapata!, Man on a Tightrope, Wild River, and America, America. The Elia Kazan Film Collection will be available for $199.98 U.S. / $349.98 Canada.

For what it's worth, Werner Herzog claims Viva Zapata! is Marlon Brando's best movie.

Here's the source--an NPR interview in which he discusses his picks for three essential movies.

Considering we're only a few cents from parity that's just stupid. I wonder what's up with that?

Three good picks but I would go with On the Waterfront or A Streetcar Named Desire as my top Brando performances.
