Jocelyn Brando

1919 - 2005

Jocelyn Brando, the older sister of Marlon Brando, was born Nov. 18, 1919, in San Francisco, California, to Marlon Brando Sr. and his wife, the former Dorothy Pennebaker. Joceyln and Marlon and their sister Frances grew up mostly on a farm near Evanston, Illinois, though the family moved around during their childhoods. The bane of the children's existence was the alcoholism of both parents, which was particularly acute with their mother. Her brother's friend Karl Malden believed that Jocelyn's promising career was derailed by alcohol. Despite not living up to her promise, she managed a career that spanned five decades in the theater, film and television. Jocelyn Brando came to the stage naturally, first appearing in a theatrical production under the direction of her mother, who was a principal in an Omaha community theater group that included Henry Fonda. She made her Broadway debut soon after her 22rd birthday, appearing in "The First Crocus" at the Longacre Theatre on January 2, 1942
