Actor Ralph Fiennes Lied & Cheated
To Portray A Liar And A Cheat

In other words the actor Ralph Fiennes lied and cheated just like Van Doren in order to perform better for the movie.

“Van Doren refused to cooperate in the movie’s making and declined to meet with actor Ralph Fiennes, who portrayed him in the film. Fiennes later told People magazine that after Van Doren brushed him off, he knocked on his door pretending to be lost so he could observe Van Doren’s movements and speech patterns.”

Charles Van Doren, the disgraced game show contestant who inspired the 1990s movie “Quiz Show,” has died. He was 93.

The dashing young academic’s meteoric rise and fall as a corrupt game show player served as a cautionary tale about the staged competitions of early television after he admitted to cheating on the 1950s show “Twenty-One.”

His son John Van Doren told the Associated Press that his father died of natural causes Tuesday at a care center for the elderly in Canaan, Conn. Funeral services will be private.

The handsome scion of a prominent literary family, Van Doren was the central figure in the TV game show scandals of the late 1950s and eventually pleaded guilty to perjury for lying to a grand jury that investigated them. He spent the following decades largely out of the public eye.

“Queens-born Herbie Stempel (John Turturro) becomes an unlikely hero after winning on America’s beloved game show, “Twenty One.” When the network decides to bring in a more telegenic contestant, the WASP-ish Charles Van Doren (Ralph Fiennes), Stempel takes aim at the show, announcing that the game is rigged. Congressional investigator Dick Goodwin (Rob Morrow) is brought in to examine the claim that winners were given the answers. Goodwin wrote the book on which this true story is based.”[movie the quiz ]

Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary

to send forth a stinking savour:

so doth a little folly him

that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.
