The title to Clint Eastwood's film, "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly," would have been more apt on the dust jacket of a Jean Paul Getty biography.

Paul Getty, one of America's first billionaires and the richest man in the world, was a consummate businessman who built an empire and left a remarkable antiquities and art collection as his legacy.
