The Hoax

The Hoax is a 2007 American drama film based on the true story of American novelist Clifford Irving's falsified autobiography about the seclusive billionaire aviator Howard Hughes. In what would cause a fantastic media frenzy, Clifford Irving (Gere) sells his bogus biography of Howard Hughes to a premiere publishing house in the early 1970s. The film is directed by Lasse Hallstrom and written by William Wheeler. Actor Richard Gere portrays Clifford Irving, and Alfred Molina portrays Irving's associate Dick Suskind.
