GENRE BENDING IN B&W: The David Whiting Story w/ Controversies
Directed by Walter Reuben
(USA/2014/88mins.)

A movie about the unreliability of memory. A surreal black comedy which combines actual documentary interviews; staged portrayals of larger-than-life figures Ayn Rand, Mike Wallace, Cesar Romero, Lee J. Cobb and others; telephone interviews and aged newspaper clippings; and the proverbial Google search -- all in an effort to solve several lifelong mysteries: who was David Whiting (who died mysteriously in an Arizona motel during a Hollywood film shoot), and what was the mythic so-called 'Cesar Romero joke' which all of the filmmaker's classmates still remember as being utterly hilarious but which nobody can recall what the joke actually was?

Imagine the classic film RASHOMON (which deals with memory and truth) on steroids: a movie about love, betrayal, film history and memory, which playfully challenges your own memory of what you have already seen.
