Profile of J. Paul Getty, one of America’s first billionaires. Getty, the richest man in the world in the mid 20th century, was a consummate businessman who built an oil empire and left a vast antiquities and art collection as his legacy. But he was a womanizer, a miser, and a completely dysfunctional parent. This is a tale of great success in business and utter failure as a human being.
