Did You Know?
The film is based on a 2011 story published in Vanity Fair alleging that Elizabeth Taylor
, Marlon Brando
, and Michael Jackson
embarked on a road trip from New York City to Ohio in a rental car shortly after the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks, as accounted by Elizabeth Taylor's former personal assistant Tim Mendelson
and an anonymous former employee of Michael Jackson. While Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando were in New York City on the evening of the 10th to attend Michael Jackson's 30th anniversary concert, whether the road trip actually took place is disputed. A former employee of Taylor told the Washington Post that she remained in New York for several days and eventually flew home, while a family friend of Michael Jackson told the New York Post he departed New York on his tour bus, accompanied by his family and professional entourage, while Marlon Brando sequestered himself in his hotel room.
