NEW YORK - Anthony Marshall has had a life of privilege and pain as philanthropist Brooke Astor's only child.
Born into wealth, he joined the Marines after high school and was wounded in the battle of Iwo Jima. He later became an ambassador, author and Broadway producer before his life began to crumble when his own son accused him of mistreating the aged Astor and doyenne of New York society who married into one of the country's first ultra-rich families.
As he faces the possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison, the normally reserved Marshall is taking a surprisingly personal approach to stay free.
