Ex­cit­ing, con­sis­tently in­ter­est­ing pic­ture fol­low­ing the true(ish) story of the man who, in the early 1970s, con­vinced a ma­jor pub­lisher that Howard Hughes had granted him per­mis­sion to ghost an exclusive au­to­bi­og­ra­phy. This un­re­li­able his­tory of an un­re­li­able his­tory fea­tures de­li­cious pe­riod de­tail and ben­e­fits from a prop­erly sleazy lead per­for­mance by Gere. Bare-bones DVD, alas.
