Mural, Folly Beach, SC  © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved

This figure is part of mural painted on the side of 

Planet Follywood Bar on Folly Beach. 
The painter is award winning Charleston artist James Christopher Hill

Any of you film buffs know the depicted Hollywood actor
 and in which movie he played?


  1. And look how you got his reflection on the car! I have no clue which actor he is or which movie. He looks like Elvis to me...but with Johhny on the jacket???

  2. I'll vote for James Dean, Doug. Very clever of you to add to the street art by capturing the reflection in not only the duco but also the window.

  3. That's Marlon Brando from "The Wild One".
    The film was created four years before you were born!
    At least, you can use this excuse. ;6)

    Next question. ;o)

  4. clever shot with brando times three.

  5. Beautiful mural. And yes this is Marlon Brando when he was still young and handsome. The title of this precise film , I don't know. I have other films in my mind with him.

  6. Fine street photography. The shot is well composed, has interesting details, and would be purchase readily I would think.

  7. Great framing of the mural Doug...
    this image as well as other paintings by James Christopher Hill
    are perfect replicas of Marlon Brando in "The wild One"

  8. I am not much of a film expert but really like the piece of street art you captured for us. Looks elegant in black and white.

  9. skillfully done indeed and well rendered by you. I have no idea who he is though

  10. A very effective shot, Doug. No idea who it is...

  11. Nice play with the reflection on the car, creating a brilliant composition. Nicely seen!
    Have a nice day.
