Ep. 29: Marlon Brando’s coming of age in Libertyville


The Academy Awards are this weekend, so it seemed fitting to talk about some local history that connects Libertyville to Hollywood. Did you know Marlon Brando spent a large chunk of his teen years as a rebellious troublemaker at LHS?

Joe, one of our adult services librarians, discusses how Brando ended up in Libertyville and shares a few of the wild one’s greatest pranks.

Read Joe’s full blog post A Kid Named Bud, then check out a Marlon Brando movie from the library! Joe also wrote a great history of the Liberty Theater Brando worked at.
