No it wasn't, actually. It was at a time that Brando was out of control. He later apologized to just about everyone on that film, the other actors, the director and the producers. He was an ass!hole and admitted it. He nearly ran the production company broke and the only way they could finish the film was to agree to his demand and build an 18 foot replica and burn that!

Brando had just been sacked by Stanly Kubrick and caused the dismissal of a great direct on Bounty... Anyway read it here
