Wally Cox Timeline
1940Was a childhood friend of Marlon Brando. The young Brando once tied the young Cox to a fence and left him in bondage overnight. They later met again in New York City in the 1940s and became best friends, a friendship that lasted until Cox's death.
1940Studied with Stella Adler in the 1940s in New York and became roommates for a time with Marlon Brando. Cox moved out reportedly because he couldn't stand Brando's pet raccoon. The unlikely pair, however, remained lifelong friends.
1960Once appeared in a TV commercial for men's underwear in the 1960s, but Standards and Practices, at the time, banned the commercial from broadcast. The offending material was Wally opening his dress shirt to reveal a small segment of his undershirt. This was considered "exposing underwear on a live model" and the commercial never aired.

2004Marlon Brando took possession of Cox's ashes from his widow in order to scatter them at sea but actually kept them hidden in a closet at his house and frequently talked to them. The Los Angeles Times on September 22, 2004, quoted Brando's son, Miko, to the effect that both his father's and Cox's ashes were scattered at the same time in Death Valley, California, following Brando's death.
