Plot: Early in 1971, McGraw-Hill passes on Clifford Irving's new novel. He's desperate for money, so, against the backdrop of Nixon's reelection calculations, Irving claims he has Howard Hughes's cooperation to write Hughes's autobiography. With the help of friend Dick Suskind, Irving does research, lucks into a manuscript written by a long-time Hughes associate, and plays on corporate greed. He's quick-thinking and outrageously bold. Plus, he banks on Hughes's reluctance to enter the public eye. At the same time, he's trying to rebuild his marriage and deflect the allure of his one-time mistress, Nina Van Pallandt. Can he write a good book, take the money, and pull off the hoax?Keywords: 1970s, adultery, based-on-true-story, book, book-burning, book-signing, bookstore, credulousness, deceit, deception

Cliff gets into character as Howard Hughes to record his "biography." In this scene: Clifford Irving (Richard Gere), Dick Suskind (Alfred Molina) About The Hoax: The Hoax is the thrilling and unbelievably true story of the man who nearly pulled off the media scam of the 20th century.
