Filmmaker James Toback has been accused of being a sexual predator who uses his position in Hollywood to seduce aspiring actresses. In 2018, five sexual misconduct cases against Toback were reviewed by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. However, criminal charges were never filed against Toback because the allegations did not fall within the statute of limitations. The LA Times also corroborated the claims, saying nearly 400 women contacted them following an article in which it reported that 38 women had come forward after Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment case to tell stories. similar sexual harassment by Toback.
New York State recently changed its statute of limitations, paving the way for a new lawsuit against Toback. The Adult Survivors Act was recently enacted and gives victims one year to sue their abusers, regardless of when the abuse took place. Victims can also sue institutions that protect sexual predators. The Harvard Club, which was used by Toback as a venue for the abuse, was also named in the complaint against Toback. The lawsuit accuses the Harvard Club for “providing him with a safe haven for his wrongful and criminal acts”.
The Harvard Club has not commented on the charges, except to say that Toback’s membership in the exclusive club was terminated in 2017. Toback graduated from Harvard in 1966, which gave him access to the prestigious club.
Seventy-eight-year-old Toback has been accused of sexual misconduct for almost four decades. Some of the films he produced that brought him fame include The Gambler (1974), The Pick-Up Artist (1987), Bugsy (1991), Two Girls and a Guy (1997) and The Private Life of a Modern Woman (2017). Bugsy was nominated for an Oscar. Among Toback’s many accusers are actresses Selma Blair, Julianne Moore and Rachel McAdams. Additionally, Toback has been accused of using his friendship with Robert Downey Jr to build an impression of his prominence in Hollywood when he pressures women into having sex or performing sex acts. Some of his victims also claim that he threatened them with violence if they spoke about their encounters. In January 2018, Selma Blair told The Talk that she had been scared after Toback threatened her: “I was literally scared for 17 years of James Toback threatening to murder me and, you know, to putting on cement shoes and gouging out my eyes with a Bic pen if I ever told anyone.
