BRANDO'S ASHES SCATTERED WITH GAY LOVER'S
Sep 24 2004
Farewell to film legend at ceremony in desert
By Ian Markham-Smith
SCREEN legend Marlon Brando's ashes have been scattered in the desert along with those of his gay lover.
Three-times-married Brando and actor Wally Cox, who met as young men at acting school, had long been rumoured to be lovers.
And when Brando was entrusted with Wally's ashes after his death in 1973, aged just 48, he kept them.
A friend said: 'Wally was the big love of Marlon's life.'
Marlon treasured the ashes and kept them at his home but left instructions that part of his ashes were to be mixed with Wally's so they could be scattered together in Death Valley - so that even in death they would not be parted.
'Wally's loss was the heartache that Marlon had to bear for so many years.'
Manchester, the star's son with his second wife Movita, confirmed some of Cox's ashes had been scattered with his dad's in the California desert.
More of Brando's remains were scattered on Tahiti, where he bought a home after filming Mutiny sive or insul there.
Miko would not give details of why Cox's ashes were mixed with his fathers. He would only say it seemed like the right thing to do,adding: 'He was his best friend.'
Brando, who is believed to have had at least 16 children, and Cox, who was married twice, met at the famous Stella Adler acting studio in New York in the 1940s.
They shared a home for a while but it was rumoured Cox moved out because he could not stand Brando's pet raccoon.
Godfather star Brando, who died in June at 80 of lung failure, was devastated at Cox's death from a heart attack.
The New York Post reported yesterday: 'After he died, Marlon Brando's ashes were mixed together with those of his lover Wally Cox and scattered in .'
Cox,who wore thick glasses was noted for playing characters with meek and shy personalities, seemed an unlikely match for the brooding Brando.
But they remained close for decades, prompting Hollywood speculation about the nature of their relationship.
