Cliff Robertson is the true star of this story., Jun 5 1998
David Begelman would never have been exposed as the crook he was without the dogged, principled determination of Cliff Robertson to get to the bottom of corruption at the top levels of Hollywood. This excellent book documents Robertson's heroic efforts to get at the truth -- for which he was blackballed by the Hollywood establishment for years. Cliff once said to me: "Of all the things in my life I'm proud of -- if I'm proud at all -- is not winning the best actor Oscar or Emmy; it's my part in bringing down that crook Begelman." But perhaps the book is most valuable for its exposure of the top echelon of Hollywood -- controlled by people with lots of money and no taste; people who know nothing whatever about movies. And could care less. I hope this book is reprinted soon. It is timeless.
