Marlon Brando - Marlon Brando's Secret Phone Tapes Revealed

Movie great Marlon Brando spent years flouting California's strict phone laws by recording conversations he had with the famous and powerful, according to a new report.
The late actor secretly and illegally taped private recordings with friends and associates and left behind a treasure trove of bugged chats.
Movie mogul Mike Medavoy, who is one of the executors of Brando's estate, tells the Globe, "Brando was famous for making late-night phone calls, and I think he recorded almost every conversation he had."
Now, attorney Jeffrey Abrams, the manager of Brando Enterprises - the company that protects the film icon's legacy - is working with the late star's family in an effort to collect the candid chats, together with personal letters and photographs fans have never seen.
Abrams says, "He (Brando) was a lover of technology. There are reel-to-reel tapes from the 1950s. He'd put a giant tape recorder in the middle of the table as he had conversations with people. There's so much he collected about himself and so many more sides to Marlon Brando than the world has seen so far."
The Globe tabloid suggests many Hollywood superstars will be quaking at the thought of the phone chats being released as part of a retrospective exhibition and book project - because there are secrets that will be exposed.
One insider tells the publication, "He knew almost every major celebrity in town and it's no secret he loved to gossip with them on the phone... There are a lot of people in Hollywood who'll be holding their breath."
California law forbids civilians from recording phone chats without the permission of the other party or parties on the line.
