"Can You Ever Forgive Me?" Have you seen this movie?

It is a must see for anyone interested in autographs or documents. I saw it on DVD last night and thought it was great.

In your experience, do the scenes in the movie express the realities of the autograph/document field?

All glory is fleeting.

    I just read about the movie. Wow! Based on a real memoir. I did not know of the woman until reading this. Crazy story!!!

    I can't answer your question but I saw it when it came out and thought it was terrific. It DID make me doubt the authenticity of every autograph I own. :D

    Interesting - thx for posting. I will have to check it out.

    While it is disturbing that she was able to forge high end material (as others have also done), she was ultimately caught (as were others). I 'd like to think the lie ultimately gets uncovered.

    Maybe not always ... but I'll let you watch the movie. :)

    I'm from the coin side on these boards, but I'm also a book collector with a focus on Fakes, Frauds, Forgers and Hoaxes.

    This is from my forgery catalogue:
