9:11 am
>> i see myself as a strong advocate and a person who works to win justice for women. >> reporter: sometimes avenging wrongs. >> could be. i'm pretty tough. >> i disagree with the learned counsel here. >> as she usually does. >> reporter: love gloria allred or hate her. >> meg witman is exposed. >> reporter: just don't ignore. >> nicky was meg witman's housekeeper for nine years. >> reporter: last year after she took the case of an undocumented worker accusing california gubernatorial candidate meg whitman of cheating her out of housekeeper wages.... >> she says i cannot help you. >> reporter: witman's approval ratings plummeted and ultimately whitman lost the election. allred's "in your face" style may not win her many fans with politicians or fill-and-ering husbands. >> but i'll venture to say more people know her name than who the vice president is. >> reporter: maybe so. but gloria allred's
9:12 am
familiarity has bred plenty of contempt. >> every time some high-proceed fail case breaks out, you jump on television and act like you're god. >> reporter: and made her a frequent target of fun on late night television. >> gloria allred is representing the undocumented alien. how about we let the maid stay and take gloria allred. >> if nobody knew who she was, there wouldn't be a joke. >> reporter: nathan has been allred's law partner in los angeles for more than 30 years. >> gloria always stands up for what she believes. she doesn't take an opinion poll. she says what she thinks and lets the chips fall where they may. she takes the heat and doesn't shy away from it. >> reporter: she's also a bit of a scold. >> you are a disgrace charlie. >> reporter: publicly cast gating charlie sheen for his treatment of women. >> his sense of arrogance and entitlement is disgusting. >> reporter: even though she wasn't involved in any case
9:13 am
against him. >> i know how the system works so i know that it can work better. but it does take advocacy. >> reporter: don't you sometimes just want to say let someone else do it. why does it always have to be you? >> it doesn't always have to be me. we want millions of someone else's to do it but if i know what needs to be done and there's no one else doing it, then i need to do it. >> reporter: was she different than any other mother you ever knew? >> yes. >> reporter: lisa bloom, a lawyer herself, is gloria allred's only child. and one of her earliest cases. when lisa was sent home in fifth grade for wearing pants to a school square dance.... >> she marched into school the next day and said, "that was discrimination. that was wrong." guess what? they allowed her to square dance ever after. some moms would have said don't worry about it, honey. make me cup cakes. my mom got in there and changed the policy not just for me but for other girls. >> reporter: at age 7 lisa was already joining her mom at
9:14 am
public demonstrations. >> i remember somebody saying to me, how could you take that little girl on the picket line? and i said, well, actually i'm kind of embarrassed that it took me so long to have her come on to a picket line. >> reporter: gloria allred grew up in philadelphia, planning to be a teacher. she got married at 19 when she was a sophomore in college, had her daughter a year later, and was divorced before she graduated. >> as my father would have said. i went through the college of hard knocks. >> reporter: but life only got tougher. allred says she met a doctor on vacation in mexico and was raped at gun point. she became pregnant. >> that's when i found out though that you couldn't have a legal abortion. what you had to have was an illegal and unsafe abortion which i did have and which i almost died. >> reporter: that experience, she says, turned her into a fighter for women's rights. >> we as women don't only want
9:15 am
equal rights. we want equal responsibility. >> reporter: at age 33, allred, a high school teacher, became a lawyer. she learned quickly how to grab headlines. in the early '80s she sued new york's all-male frier's club successfully to become its first female member. >> you know, henny youngman said some people bring happiness wherever they go. gloria allred brings happiness whenever she goes. >> that was cute. that was a good line. >> reporter: doesn't bother you? >> yeah. >> i have a trash bag with me. >> reporter: but it's no joke that today there are few actors in hollywood more skilled at grabbing the spotlight for herself and those she represents. >> so the attorney argument is garbage. therefore properly placed in the garbage bag. >> when she calls a press conference we all go because we want to see what's going to happen. >> reporter: this man works for the celebrity television
9:16 am
news magazine inside edition. he's not troubled by the idea that allred uses the press to apply pressure. >> no one is forcing us to go to those news conferences. but because of those news conferences, her clients get attention. an issue that we might not otherwise talk about gets attention. i think if you had a man doing what she does you'll call him a champion. with gloria, you use the b-word. >> reporter: the better b-word might be big bucks. allred claims that over the years she has won a quarter of a billion dollars just in sex harassment suits. >> we'll do what it takes as long as it's legal, peaceful, i'll do whatever, whenever, however to win. >> reporter: take the case of rachael ukitell the self-professed miss stress of golfer tiger woods. in december 2009 as she was about to appear with allred in
9:17 am
front of cameras to tell her story, allred abruptly canceled the press conference. did woods pay a reported $10 million for her client's silence? what about the rachael ukitell case. >> i have no comment about rachael. >> reporter: on this matter allred is uncharacteristically discreet. can you explain why that press conference was canceled at the last minute. >> no, i cannot. >> reporter: was there a settlement? >> no comment. >> reporter: why not? i would assume from your no comment that there has been a settlement. >> i have no comment. >> reporter: you're just not going to answer that question. why not? >> i have no comment on why i have no comment. >> reporter: well, allred is known best for her celebrity clients, she says she does most of her work out of the spotlight for women like rit a milla. >> when i was teenager, i was abused by a couple of catholic priests.
9:18 am
that continued for a few years. >> reporter: allred took her case long before these types of lawsuits against the catholic church were common. she worked on the case without getting paid for more than two decades. >> 23 years on one case. >> reporter: 23 years. >> that's the longest for any case. >> reporter: in the end, she helped rit a milla went a half million dollar settlement. the impeccably turned-out attorney turned 70 this year. if her beach house in malibu is any indication, she no longer has to work. yet gloria allred shows no signs of softening, nor slowing down. do you even ever take a vacation? >> no. nor do i wish to take a vacation. this is what imminent to do. this is what there is a need for me to do. i have a duty to do it. i love to do it. i have a passion for justice.
9:19 am
and this is what i hope to do for the rest of my life. >> osgood: ben franklin's take on taxes coming up. [ male announcer ] every day, thousands of people

9:21 am
>> osgood: now a page from our sunday morning almanac, november 13, 17189, 222 years rag, the day benjamin franklin wrote to his french friend that, quote, our new constitution is now established. and it has an appearance that promises permanency. but in this world, nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes. we've mostly forgotten franklin's optimism about our constitution. we remember only his dire thoughts on taxes. indeed taxes have been the running theme throughout our history. from the british tax that triggered the boston tea party to the ratification in 1913 of the 16th amendment that authorized the income tax, heated tax debates are an american tradition. >> middle class families shouldn't pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires. >> a 20% flat tax on the personal side. >> a tax on corporate income, a 9% tax on personal income
9:22 am
and a 9% national sales tax. >> osgood: taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society said justice oliver wendell holmes. and enduring the endless arguments over taxes appears to be part of the price we pay as well. what benjamin franklin so famously said about paying taxes and one day being dead are the only two things of which we can be sure, that may once have been true but could this long endure under a tax code that's so complicated that nothing can be unequivocally stated? and so many people-- and this, there's no doubt of-- think of taxes as something they try to get out of. ahead, the return of the silent movie. so i'm glad it's with fidelity. they offer me one-on-one guidance to help me

9:25 am
>> osgood: from points west this morning, lee cowan has a sneak preview of a new silent movie that's making a lot of noise. you might think the idea that silence is golden is out of place in a world of modern film making, but no. ♪ >> reporter: it was hollywood's infancy, just a gesture or a glance, enough to light up the silver screen. a time as gloria swanson once famously quipped when stars had faces. >> used to be in silent pictures. you used to be big. >> i am big. it's the picture that got small. >> reporter: but norm a desmond might have felt right at home at this premiere last week. the film getting all the attention was a quirky against

the odds project entitled the artist. not only is it in black and white, but it's wordless as in primal. >> action! >> reporter: but this was shot in hollywood today with every high tech sound recording device simply turned off. >> no one shouting quiet on the set. >> reporter: the artist is the brain child of french director, telling stories without words he says is a fantasy, the purist form of movie making. >> really it's about... you don't need dialogue. people think it's intellectual. but it's exactly the opposite. it's a very controlled
9:27 am
experience. >> reporter: in a town where avatars and transformers roam the studio back lots, this movie is no easy task. when you told people i want to make a silent movie.... >> at first they thought i was kidding. "yeah, okay, but i mean what do you want to do for real?" >> reporter: he was for real. the script he wrote is about a silent movie star normed george valentine played by french actor jeanne dejardins complete with a side kick. john goodman plays valentine's boss, a studio executive desperate to modernize by branching into talkees instead. what was it about this role that attracted you? >> playing a big shot. without lines. >> reporter: since there was no scripted dialogue he and all the actors just made it up. acting outloud even though the
9:28 am
audience would never hear a word. >> if i screwed up the dialogue and i was improvising it who cares. >> reporter: you didn't have to memorize a thing. >> less work for dan. me like. >> reporter: not that it was easy. cromwell who plays valentine's loyal chauffeur says on the silent screen overacting is far too easy. >> the difficulty for an actor is that you have no reference as to where to pitch your performance. usually we gauge it by hearing ourselves speak. this you have to rely completely on your facial expressions and your gestures. >> reporter: and of course the music which becomes almost a character itself. it helps set the mood for what becomes a love story between valentine whose star begins to fade and his beautiful chorus girl who soon finds her voice in the talkees.
9:29 am
to bring peppy miller to life, the director's wife spent hours studying classic hollywood legends like marlene a dietrich. >> i used to watch the way she winked and she smoked cigarettes and held her head and moved just because i needed to have a sense of what it was to be an american movie star. >> reporter: but perhaps even the best movie star of old couldn't have done quite so much with a coat rack. even her husband director was shocked. >> i was like trying this out and i thought, oh, i can do this. he said, oh, keep that. that is so funny. >> reporter: funny and charming. those are the two words most often used to describe this film. it's gotten rave reviews at the film festivals in can, toronto and tell uwe ride. some are talking an academy award. the last time a silent movie won an oscar it was the very
9:30 am
first oscar ever given all the way back in 1927. >> to have this film to watch, it was so much fun. looked so easy. >> reporter: the l.a. times film critic sees just one down side to the art. >> the hardest thing about this film is to convince people that they're going to like it. i've been telling people about it for months. you can tell by the look in people's eyes they say, yeah, you say it's good but it's a silent film. i'm not going. >> reporter: that would be a shame. silence, says the director, has so much to offer. >> when you want to tell to your wife you love her, for example, i mean, you can say i love you. but if you just look at her, something happens with no words. i think usually it's more powerful. >> reporter: which is why we'll stop talking now too.
9:31 am
>> osgood: next, the red hot chili peppers still red hot. and later.... >> no peace ever ends for the federal bureau of investigation. >> osgood: the truth about g-man j. edgar hoover.

>> reporter: whatever the sound, their legion of fans have made them one of the most successful bands the last quarter venturi, so far selling more than 60 million records. not bad for some middle aged guys who started in 1983, just wanting to have fun. >> the very first night that we played we called ourselves tony slow and the miraculously majestic mayham but as soon as the club owner asked us to come back the next week with another song, he said can you come back next week with two songs we realized this could be a... this could go on for at least a month. >> reporter: as teenagers, kiedis and flea were friends at fairfax high in los angeles. >> i met anthony who was equally as wild as me when we were about 15. you know, we definitely got along. >> reporter: that stuff was
9:36 am
often on l.a.'s sunset strip. >> flea and i actually used to sneak into the roxy on a regular basis because we couldn't afford to go see shows. we would climb up the drain pipe in the back and go into the back stage window and surprise whatever band was playing and say, "do you guys mind if we just kind of come in and see the show?" it's hard to turn somebody away who has got that much enthusiasm. >> reporter: but it was on stage where their story started. >> maybe i could rap, you know. let's try it. a week later we're on stage, you know, and we put together a song and got together and did it. it was so fun. the excitement level was just like an undeniable magical thing. the next thing you know we're the red hot chili peppers and there are lines around the block wanting to see us. >> reporter: the chili peppers
9:37 am
became known for their wild performances including appearing on stage wearing only a sock. their lifestyle was equally wild, soaked in alcohol and drugs. and with kiedis and flea always present, others members have come and gone. 13 in total. but who's counting? drummer chad smith wasn't there at the beginning, but he's been with the peppers since 1989. >> we're kids. we're just big grown-up kids, you know. >> reporter: they have grown up. smith is 50. flea and kiedis both 49. all three are parents with young children. the real kid in the band is its newest member lead guitarist josh klinghoffer. at just 32 he was barely walking when the peppers first performed.
9:38 am
>> amazing thing to play these songs that i've grown up with. >> reporter: klinghoffer probably first listened to the 1991 album blood sugar sex magic which introduced the world to their distinctive sound. it sold more than 15 million copies and included perhaps the peppers' best loved hit "under the bridge." ♪ i don't ever want to be like i did that day ♪ ♪ i came into the place i love ♪ ♪. >> "under the bridge" gets a lot of love, yeah. i'll be driving down the street and a car full of what looks like hard core gang bangers will roll down their window and say, "i love that song "under the bridge." i'm like i'm so glad you didn't just kill me. ♪ listen what i say, oh > during the late '90s and
9:39 am
early oos, the chili peppers dominated the air waves the hits such as "by the way" and stadium arcade-ium which won five grammy awards. >> i love hearing us on the radio, man. whenever i hear it, i just can't believe other people are hearing. like i got in the car and he's hearing it too. >> reporter: staying on top meant a grueling worldwide tour to promote stadium arcade- ium. for two years the chili peppers criss-crossed the globe. a two-year break followed. >> we decided on the last day of tour in whatever year it was, we're going to take two years off and do absolutely nothing to do with the red hot chili peppers. in two years' time we'll get back together and have a discussion and take it from there. >> reporter: during his time off, chad smith made a children's record with none

other than dick van dyke. >> he sang actually a rap song. he's 84 years old. he's just totally cool. >> reporter: flea spent his down time at school as a teacher. he founded and at first largely financed the silver lake conservatory of music in los angeles. it provides lessons for 700 students a week who might not otherwise be able to study music. >> now beethoven, mozart, bach, they're just killing me. >> reporter: and then flea became a student himself, studying classical music at the university of southern california. >> i was like running across the campus holding a big backpack of books. i'm late to class. i'm late. i'm going to be in trouble. i'm like what am i doing? i could be on the beach in the

bahamas right now eating a papaya. >> reporter: the two-year break also included some unexpected misfortune. guitarist john frusciante who had helped write some of the peppers' biggest hits announced he wasn't coming back. while others may have thought the chili peppers were finished, the rest of the band had no intention of calling it quits. >> you know, i feel very close to these people as friends, and i i couldn't couldn't imagine not spending that kind of amazing time and experience with them. >> reporter: josh klinghoffer had played with the group as a side man. he was at a baseball game when flea called his cell phone and told him they wanted him to become lead guitarist. what was your answer? >> i'm at the dodgers game. i'll call you back. >> reporter: priorities. with josh on board, they recorded the new album "i'm with you."
9:42 am
it shot right to the top of the charts when it was released this summer. in september, the band was nominated for the rock'n'roll hall of fame. and though their music still might be difficult to categorize, many fans of the red hot chili peppers will insist the band has its own exuberant brand of genius. how else to explain why they didn't just survive; they continue to thrive. >> energy takes over on stage when certain people play music together. it lifts you. it fills you with an energy that you could never find anywhere else. lots of love. thank you very much. you were fun to be with. god bless.

9:53 am
bureau of investigation is as close to you as your nearest telephone. it belongs to you. >> reporter: but he also considered the bureau his personal keystone. >> the presidents were afraid of hoover. the congress didn't want to do any oversight. the f.b.i. was a law unto itself. >> reporter: ron kessler has written three books about the f.b.i. he says ironically in the beginning, hoover, a young justice department lawyer was charged with cleaning up a corrupt division. >> hoover emphasized the need for professionalism, not hiring people just because they were friends with someone or family members. he established the fingerprint operation. he established the indexing system with the files. >> machine gun sharp shooting from a fast-moving car. >> reporter: he also established the f.b.i. academy to train agents in crime-busting techniques, making sure he got the credit. >> director hoover super

sizing field practice, and the target might be a gangster car. >> reporter: in fact, the bureau's reputation and hoover's soared with high-profile takedowns of gangsters like john dillinger. but out of the spotlight the director was consolidating his power in another way. how did he go about collecting dirt on people? >> hoover, for one thing, would tell, for example, the head of the washington field office, i want material on congressmen, and they would include affairs that they might be having or they were picked up for seeing a prostitute the night before. then he would make sure that they knew that he knew what they had done. >> reporter: hoover kept files on celebrities like marilyn monroe, john lennon, elvis presley, and even albert einstein. >> in part because he wanted to have little gossip items to impart to presidents. on the other hand, just to
9:55 am
maintain his aura as being this powerful person who knew everything. >> that's a complete fabrication. >> reporter: now 91, this man was one of hoover's topate lieutenants. so this is you and the director. >> yes. >> reporter: he insists that if the f.b.i. kept files on public figures, it was for legitimate reasons. case in point. the information that president john f. kennedy was sharing a girlfriend, judith campbell exner with chicago mob boss sam giantana. >> that came to our attention. the attorney general approved. the white house knew about them. we had that on him. as a result the white house would sometimes call exner and it would be overheard by a wire tap. >> reporter: as for the bugging of martin luther king jr., who feuded with hoover
9:56 am
over the bureau's enforcement of civil rights, the f.b.i.'s alleged justification for tapping king was an investigation into two of his advisors who were said to be communists. but the taps ended up recording evidence of king's extra marital affairs. >> hoover was outraged that king was having affairs and projecting himself as a minister but at the same time hoover also was jealous of king because he got the nobel prize and that really infuriated hoover. hoover just totally went after him. he would even write letters to people who wanted to give awards to king saying, you know, we shouldn't do that. >> reporter: hoover may have amassed information on the sex lives of many prominent figures, but his own personal life has long been the subject of speculation. there were for years reports and rumors that hoover used to
9:57 am
cross-dress. >> yes. the rumor that hoover cross- dressed was a concoction of someone actually having been convicted of perjury. it was quoted in a book. it didn't happen. >> j. edgar hoover director and his chief assistant. >> reporter: but how about hoover's relationship with his top deputy clyde tolson? >> tolson and hoover would go on vacations together, would take adoring pictures of each other, would have lunch and dinner together almost every single day. there's no actual evidence of a sexual relationship but i believe he was homosexual and that he had a spousal relationship with tolson. >> reporter: he says he never saw anything other than friendship between the two men. but that hoover was aware of rumors. he actually had agents go and visit people and say i understand you're saying some things.... >> i went. >> reporter: you went to people and said i understand you're talking about the
9:58 am
director. >> yes. saying you have made remarks concerning mr. hoover being a homosexual. give me the evidence. they'd always back down. >> reporter: through the years, under eight presidents, hoover became all but untouchable. >> edgar, the law says that you must retire next january when you reach your 70th birthday. >> reporter: lbj even allowed him to serve beyond the 70-year age limit. >> i have just now signed an executive order exempting you from compulsory retirement for an indefinite period of time. >> reporter: and richard nixon didn't fire him either. >> nixon was afraid to do it. >> reporter: were people afraid to do it because they were afraid that hoover would go ballistic on them and start leaking out bad stuff about them? >> that was part of it. they were afraid of him. >> reporter: hoover died in
9:59 am
1972 at age 77. >> he fulfilled the american ideal of a man who made his own way. >> reporter: his funeral was a state occasion. but shortly after his death, details began leaking of a controversial domestic spying program and of hoover's own personal abuses. for example, using f.b.i. agents to work on his home. what do you think happened to hoover along the way? >> hoover, being as powerful as he was and having all this adulation all the time, did think he was god. initially he was very far-sighted. he did create this great organization. but as time went on, he became a despot. >> reporter: shortly after hoover's burial, clyde tolson, who inherited hoover's entire estate, bought the closest available plot. and almost 40 years after j. edgar hoover's death we are
10:00 am
still wondering about his secret. those he used and those he kept. >> osgood: ahead, dan akroyd, still one wild and crazy guy. but up next, end of an era.
