James Toback accused by three dozen women

An Oscar-nominated writer and director lured women into disgusting encounters while presenting himself as a gatekeeper to Hollywood stardom, according to a new report.

More than three dozen women told The Los Angeles Times that James Toback duped them into meetings in which he’d pleasure himself in front of them or grind against them.

Toback, 72, is accused of approaching women in Manhattan, touting his Oscar nomination for writing “Bugsy,” starring Warren Beatty. Toback, who directed the films “Black and White” and “Two Girls and a Guy,” told many of the women that Robert Downey Jr. was a close friend, the women told the newspaper.

TVNL Comment:  Let's face it.  Sexual assault and harassment are endemic to American society.  It has to stop.  Most women are not free to make accusatoins without fear of retribution.  There has to be a safe place for women to tell the truth.  As of now, there is none..
