The trial is finally starting for Anthony Marshall (pictured), accused of swindling grand NYC society dame Brooke Astor—his mom!—out of millions of dollars in the final, Alzheimers-ridden years of her life. What a presumed innocent dick. Let's hear some of the sensationally prickish things he did, allegedly!
— He stole a valuable painting from his mom's house!
—Oh and this:
That same year, a nurse watched in helpless shock as Marshall and his shady attorney marched the doddering, 101-year-old doyenne — one man clutching her by either arm — into her drawing room to sign papers in which Marshall gave himself sole power of $60 million of his mother's money, prosecutors charge.
Anthony Marshall is 84 years old and he's gonna trot out character witnesses like Barbara Walters, so the trial should be a good time for one and all.
