Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marlon Brando Head to Ohio...

The most unbelievable 9/11 tale of three icons’ daring retreat from a city in crisis—told Taiwanese animation style!Adapted from “Elizabeth Taylor’s Closing Act,” by Sam Kashner, published in the June 2011 issue of Vanity Fair.The last, strange decade of Elizabeth’s life began with one of the most cataclysmic events in American history, the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Michael Jackson was in New York, where he’d just given two concerts, on the 7th and 10th of September, at Madison Square Garden, to which he had brought two of his closest friends and idols: Marlon Brando and Elizabeth. His original idea had been for them to sit onstage like two great Easter Island figureheads flanking the show, but instead they sat in the audience. All three found themselves trapped in the city after the Twin Towers fell…

Vanity Fair’s Sam Kashner said: “Brando allegedly annoyed his companions by stopping at nearly every KFC and Burger King. One can only imagine the shock their appearance caused across the States.” However, no photos seem to have been taken on the 535-mile journey and one of Liz’s pals denied the story. She said: “Liz stayed behind and went to pray in a church, then went to Ground Zero. The airports opened and she flew home.”
