Marlon Brando Jr.
(April 3, 1924 – July 1, 2004)


A vintage
Vespa ridden by Hollywood legend Marlon Brando – illegally –
while visiting Britain is to go under the hammer.

Double-Oscar winner Brando rode the iconic Italian scooter around
Berkshire – even though it was not registered in the
U.K.

Brando’s “fun runaround” belonged to his American movie producer
pal Elliot Kastner, who he worked with on 1976 American epic western
"Missouri Breaks."

Kastner, best known for producing World War Two classic Where Eagles
Dare, bought the 1976 Vespa in Rome for a film shoot. He later shipped
it to England where he owned Runnymede House, a country home in
Old Windsor, Berkshire.

Jessica McClure Morales became 33 years young in March.

Following McClure’s rescue on October 16, 1987, surgeons had to
amputate a toe due to
gangrene from loss of circulation while she
was in the well. She also has a scar on her forehead where her
head rubbed against the well casing. She had 15 surgeries over
the years and has no first-hand memory of the event.
