Mickey Rourke Interviewed: Plus Hollywood's Greatest Comebacks
Chris Roberts , January 15th, 2009 01:57

Chris Roberts gets personal with Mickey Rourke and The Quietus remembers more of cinema's greatest comeback stories


Marlon Brando - The Godfather

A huge comeback which finally ended what came to be known in Hollywood as the 'Brando Blacklist' in which studios refused to work with the notoriously difficult actor, although some say his politics not his temperament was the problem. He followed The Godfather with Last Tango in Paris and Apocalypse Now, then became drunk with power and reclusive. His next comeback would be a posthumous one through recycled footage in Superman Returns.
