Brando broke his jaw
If you have mixed feelings about today's celebrity culture, HBO's "Smash His Camera" about legendary paparazzo Ron Galella offers a fascinating look at hit-and-run photography. Controversial and often vilified, Galella captured some of the most iconic images of the past 50 years. But his tactics got him sued twice by Jacqueline Onassis and slugged by Marlon Brando. Watching the documentary is like getting tips on how to be a sociopath. Airs June 7 at 9 p.m.
