* Phony Yale Degree

Courtesy of researcher J.S.:

I was reading the Wikipedia bio of David Begelman--the man [who the late actor, Cliff ] Robertson exposed as a crook.

One of the tidbits I found there was the following:

A writer for New West magazine, working on this story, queried Begelman's claimed alma mater, Yale University, listed in his Who's Who entry. Yale responded that Begelman had never attended that university. New West said "Although Begelman was indicted for forgery and grand theft, the Hollywood types were more outraged that he had listed Yale in Who's Who. Apparently they figured that everybody steals money. It was the fact that he lied about Yale that drove them crazy."
