Gettys, The: A Tragedy of Riches

Item Number:
50 min.
Closed Caption:
A & E Entertainment
Their saga is filled with more highs and lows than a soap opera. From the desperate attempts of one man to dispel his father's ghost to generations of despair and infighting, they prove that money cannot buy happiness. The Gettys are on of the most storied families in American history and one of the most troubled. BIOGRAPHY traces the long, often tragic saga of a dynasty tormented almost to destruction by its own wealth. From founder J. Paul Getty's obsessive need to disprove his father's deathbed judgement to the legal struggles that have pitted family members against each other, the story of the Gettys is told through extensive footage and numerous interviews with family, friends and associates. Three generations of Gettys reveal their take on their mixed legacy from oil fortunes, museums and charities to suicide, bankruptcy, drug abuse and lawsuits. BIOGRAPHY presents the twisted saga of the Gettys, whose money has bought them everything but happiness.
