Lee Israel was born in Brooklyn in 1939. She began her career as a freelance writer in the 60s. In November 67, on the instructions of Esquire, she interviewed Hollywood stars of the 20s - 30s Kathryn Hepburn, for which she traveled to California shortly before her death. After this career, Lee went up the hill. She then wrote a biography of actress Talloula Bankhead and journalist and televised Dorothy Kilgallen. The book about Dorothy was a huge success and even appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. Then the publisher gave her an advance so that she wrote a book about the founder of the famous cosmetics brand Estee Lauder, and it had to be an unauthorized biography with a lot of unflattering details for Lauder. Israel agreed. Lauder made several attempts to bribe Israel to abandon the project, but Li refused. Realizing that neither Israel nor the publisher can not agree, Lauder herself wrote a book about herself, and her publication coincided with the release of the book Israel. That was in 1985. Lee's book was crushed by critics and turned into a total commercial failure for her. Then Israel said, “I made a terrible mistake. Instead of taking a decent amount from a woman who was as rich as Oprah, I published a very unimportant book that brought me some losses and a bad reputation. ”

Online now she could not pay for modest housing, and lived in the full sense of hand to mouth. She tried to find at least some work, but she failed. This pushed Li to a different kind of activity, which she remembered more than her literary achievements. But Lee had a very close and devoted friend to her by the name of Jack, who worked in the archives of the large kinotochka.club library. He showed Lee various autographs of famous people, by that time the deceased were actors and writers, and Lee made very good fakes and sold them to collectors, and it was rather expensive at $ 400 per copy. But soon rumors spread that these were not authentic documents. Then she persuaded Jack to steal the originals, which he replaced with the copies she had concocted, and their joint business continued.

All this lasted for about a year, until in 1993 the FBI became interested in her, and Li was not arrested. She pleaded guilty to conspiracy to steal and sell the stolen property. During the investigation, Li spent six months under house arrest, and in court received five years of probation. Israel later said it was proud. FreeMovies4k.org Can You Ever Forgive Me?
