NAMES IN THE NEWS : Retiring on a 'Stinker,' Brando Says

August 31, 1989| From Times wire services

TORONTO — Marlon Brando says he has made his last movie--and it is a dud.

"It's horrible," he said of "The Freshman." "It's going to be a flop, but after this, I'm retiring. I'm so fed up. This picture, except for the Canadian crew, was an extremely unpleasant experience. I wish I hadn't finished with a stinker."

Brando, 65, also told the Toronto Globe and Mail in an interview published today that he is fed up with kowtowing to the Hollywood publicity system and detests New York, which he called "a wart hog straight from hell. To sing my swan song here (in Canada) is very pleasant."
