Ill Brando

Hollywood legend MARLON BRANDO has appeared in public wheelchair-bound and looking frail and ill.

The APOCALYPSE NOW star was snapped on his way to be treated for his failing eyesight, which is thought to be linked to his diabetes.

Despite recently losing 38 kilograms (6 stones) in weight after reportedly rediscovering his will to live, the reclusive Brando, 79, had to be helped to a car in a wheelchair wired up to a oxygen tank to help him breath

A source says, "He has been going to the hospital once a week for the last two or three months and has been looking increasingly frail.

"It is a shock to see how much he has gone downhill."
