About The Hoax
- Year Released:
- Directed by Lasse Hallström
While F for Fake
follows the painter Elmyr de Hory, who paints copies of the great masters and passes
them on as authentic, it also concerns a writer, Clifford Irving, who is doing a book about this painter.
Later in life, Irving wrote a book he claimed was the autobiography of Howard Hughes, which in fact was
a fake. The Hoax
amusingly and dramatically tells the
story of Irving, played perfectly by Richard
Gere. (35mm presentation)
