In the 1950s, gossip columnist and radio show personality Walter Winchell (Stanley Tucci) forged a career digging up celebrity dirt. Enticed by the private lives of public figures, the nation depended upon Winchell -- and his woeful sidekick and ghostwriter, Herman Klurfeld (Paul Giamatti) -- to spill the latest scoop. This HBO biopic proves that no scandal is ever too big or too small for America's insatiable appetite for shameful secrets. Starring Stanley Tucci, Glenne Headly, Paul Giamatti, Christopher Plummer, Xander Berkeley.
