Storyline

This biopic follows the story of Clifford Irving, who sold a faux biography of Howard Hughes to publisher McGraw-Hill. Irving persuaded the publisher that he'd become close to the reclusive Hughes, and even when Hughes held a telephone news conference to refute Irving's claims, McGraw-Hill stood by him. Finally, the truth came out and Irving was sentence to two and a half years in jail.
