This is the true story of an infamous swindle of the American public by the Secretary of the Interior in the twenties, the investigation by the Senate committee which included members of the Cabinet and prominent citizens. The Teapot Dome Scandal of the 1920's, in the USA was one of the most sensational conspiracies to defraud a government ever to hit the headlines of the world's newspapers. In which crooked oil barons, thieving politicians, jury fixing henchmen, and a gullible president, left their ignoble mark upon the pages of history. Secretary of the Interior, Albert B. Fall, sold leases on the Navy's oil reserves in California to his friends and made a personal fortune. One of those associates Harry F. Sinclair rose from being a pharmacist's assistant to become one of the richest oilmen in the world. His holdings were estimated to be in the region of $380,000,000! A decade later government special counsel succeeded in regaining the public property and punishing some of those guilty of defrauding the government. The first complete account on the events and an amazing commentary of the American scene in the 1920s.
