TRUTH !!
Brando was expelled from Libertyville High School for riding his motorcycle through the corridors. He was sent to Shattuck Military Academy, where his father had studied before him. Brando excelled at theatre and did well in the school.
In his Senior year (1943), however, he was put on probation for talking back to a student officer during maneuvers. He was confined to the campus, but tried going into town, and was caught. The faculty voted to expel him, though he was supported by the students, who thought expulsion was too harsh.
He was invited back for the following year, but decided instead to drop out of high school.
He went to work as a ditch digger, and later, as an elevator operator in a large department store.
