Summary
"Taking his cue from renowned Hungarian art forger Elmyr de Hory and the American author Clifford Irving, who gained fame with his fake Howard Hughes biography, legendary filmmaker Orson Welles attempts to expose the degree of fakery in the artistic world. From his own penchant for magic tricks to the forged masterpieces allegedly hanging on the walls of great museums and an actress' claim that she was Pablo Picasso's true muse, Welles wittily examines the nature of duplicity and counterfeiting, while employing all the tricks he has at his disposal to call his own story into question--Container
