Brief Synopsis

The story of Walter Winchell, chronicling the gossip columnist's rise from a vaudeville entertainer to one of New York's most powerful media personalities. From 1925 through the 1960s, Winchell blurred the line between tabloid and hard news, redefining modern journalism in the age of celebrity by revealing the private lives of public people. Based on a book by Winchell's longtime ghostwriter, Herman Klurfeld.
