商品の説明

内容紹介

When the head of Columbia Pictures, David Begelman, got caught forging Cliff Robertson's name on a $10,000 check, it seemed, at first, like a simple case of embezzlement. It wasn't. The incident was the tip of the iceberg, the first hint of a scandal that shook Hollywood and rattled Wall Street. Soon powerful studio executives were engulfed in controversy; careers derailed; reputations died; and a ruthless, take-no-prisoners corporate power struggle for the world-famous Hollywood dream factory began.

First published in 1982, this now classic story of greed and lies in Tinseltown appears here with a stunning final chapter on Begelman's post-Columbia career as he continued to dazzle and defraud . . . until his last hours in a Hollywood hotel room, where his story dramatically and poignantly would end.

David Begelman, powerful head of a studio thinks he is above the law, until an actor by the name of Cliff Robertson exposes him. This book is a well written tale of immorality in a town known for it's lack of scruples. Hollywood insiders should not be surprised at this tale, but I was. The check Begelman forged was for a small amount. The man made more than that in a month. The book exposes the reasons why a man who had it all, would choose to commit such a crime and fall from grace. I was quite disappointed by Robertson's treatment by Hollywood's hierarchy when he was the victim, not Begelman. But it proves just how far studios will go to protect the bottom line. I read this book when it was first published years ago and I'm reading it again. The list of books I will read more than once is a short one. I highly recommend it.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x9c8a3fa8) A good, solid treatment of a fascinating subject 2007/12/25

This is not really a tale of embezzlement and disgrace - it is the store of power struggles between the Board of Directors for Columbia Studios, who were clearly had personal loyalty in their underlings as their top priority, and the CEO, Alan Hirschfield, trying to do what he needed to do to save the studio.

I don't have access to people at this level, so I appreciate the peeping-Tom aspect of viewing the thought processes and actions of people who normally hide behind lawyers, secretaries, and call-screeners.

The author obviously interviewed many many people to put this book together, and I appreciate how he reported on the media coverage, as well. I never really thought of how people manipulate the news as part of the story, but course it is.

The book is like a newspaper story in that it is filled with information, but the narrative reads like a novel - very easy to read. The author does a good job of developing story-lines, so we have a sense of completeness, and a sense of an overview, while also sprinkling the famous names and the glamour that makes Hollywood so compelling to people.

I've never understood why Hollywood turns out bad movies month after month, year after year, when it is so easy to tell from the beginning that a movie is going to be awful. Why make awful movies?

This book doesn't directly address that issue, but it shows how irresponsible and irrational the leading powers that control Hollywood on both coasts are, and how corrupt the whole system is. It's obvious that normal things like making a good product become irrelevent to their attention span.

I guess it's not really corruption, if everyone knows it's happening, and it's just a way of getting things done.

My only complaint is that I wish I had more of a reality on the Board Directors. Their actions seem so irrational, but I'm sure it's because they were not forthcoming in their interviews, and did not take the opportunity to express their points of view. People at that level are notorious for avoiding the press, so it is not surprising.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x9c86142c) Where Hollywood and Wall Street Intersect 2009/3/30

Over twenty years after its original publication, this book is still a compelling page turner that I could not put down. Actor Cliff Robertson unwittingly uncovers an embezzler, which ultimately fuels massive incompetence and repeated mistakes that almost destroy Columbia Pictures. While we are now lamenting the greed, corruption, and incompetence that lead to our current financial crisis, it's interesting to note that Wall Street has always suffered from foolishness. A very well written book.

In 1977, actor Cliff Robertson (CHARLY) stuggled to comprehend a $10,000 payment from Columbia Studios that incurred a tax liability for him but never, to his knowledge, was received or paid out. Under gentle, then increasingly firm pressure, studio execs discovered that there was more to Begelman's malfeasance than that one "slip." Although the consequences were wide-ranging (spoiler) the good-old-boy network got Robertson blacklisted for his honesty and persistence, while most of the moguls kept on running the Hollywood machine as before.

INDECENT EXPOSURE the book is now 32 years old but has gone through several editions and is still read in business schools as an example of how corporate malfeasance can become entrenched throughout a corporate culture. It's well worth reading by the layman, too, because McClintick tells the story cogently, compellingly and well. This especially applies to film buffs and those who are interested in how movies are made. Highly recommended.
