Overview

First published in 1982, Indecent Exposure is the classic story of Hollywood's greatest scandal and the bitter corporate power struggle that resulted.Beginning with what seemed like a serious but contained incident of embezzlement, Columbia Pictures studio head David Begelman is caught forging a $10,000 check with Oscar-winning actor Cliff Robertson's name on it.Soon the lives of dozens of Holywood's most powerful figures are engulfed in the most controversial and painful incident of their careers.Wall Street is also drawn in as the powerful financier owners of Columbia struggle for control of the studio.

David McClintick is adding a new chapter to this edition, following Begelman's post-Columbia career in Hollywood, as he continues to dazzle and defraud.It ends with the dramatic and poignant rendering of Begelman's final hours and his suicide in a Hollywood hotel room.

Fascinating, if you're interested in the movie business and how people's opinions can be changed if they're making money.
