Marlon Brando Estate Sues Harley-Davidson over Boot Name

The Marlon Brando estate claims in a lawsuit that Harley-Davidson Motor Co. misappropriated the late actor’s likeness with its line of “Brando” boots.

The Harley boots look similar to a pair worn by Brando in the 1953 movie The Wild One, the lawsuit says. Hollywood, Esq. and the Associated Press have coverage.

A similar suit was filed last year by the estate of Humphrey Bogart over a “Bogart” couch sold by Ashley Furniture, Hollywood, Esq. says.
