Brando Blanked Kerouac

In 1957, Jack Kerouac wrote to Marlon Brando begging him to buy the film rights to his novel On the Road and to turn it into a movie. Kerouac pitched the idea that Brando could play Dean Moriarty and that he could play Sal Paradise. The pleading missive, discovered in 2005, was recently sold by the auction house Christie’s for $33,600.
