Waltzing with Brando
Planning a Paradise in Tahiti
Waltzing with Brando is the story of a young Los Angeles architect who found himself, quite unexpectedly, living on an unpopulated atoll in the South Pacific with his client, Marlon Brando.
Waltzing with Brando is the story of Marlon Brando and architect Bernard Judge living and working together on an unpopulated island near Tahiti between 1970 and 1974. It is an account of the four years they were developing a plan for, and later building, a small hotel on the Polyneisian atoll of Tetiaroa. Waltzing with Brando is a compelling story of a young architect who found himself, quite unexpectedly, living with Brando on a tiny speck of land within a crashing coral reef. The story includes a wealth of wild, funny and at times dangerous exploits. The narrative covers the joys, as well as the trials and tribulations of building a paradise in the midst of limpid lagoons, swaying palms and brilliant, white sand beaches.
