The allegations of sexual abuse against actor Armie Hammer, 36, are investigated in the documentary series House of Hammer, which began streaming on discovery+ on September 2.
The series consists of three parts.
Casey Hammer, Armie’s aunt, makes an appearance in the documentary.
She calls attention to the fact that other members of Armie’s family have also had difficult histories, such as Armie’s late grandfather Julian Hammer, who was the son of the late oil tycoon Armand Hammer.
In the documentary, Julian’s daughter Casey reveals several of her father’s most intimate and intimately private thoughts and feelings.
From watching House of Hammer, this is all you need to know about Julian that you absolutely must know.
Julian murdered someone.
Julian was 26 years old when he murdered a close friend at his house in Los Angeles on the morning of his birthday in May 1955.
It is said that he killed the man twice with a gun because he owed him $400 from a gambling debt.
Casey, the man’s daughter, is quoted in the documentary as saying, “The tale that he gave us was self-defense; however, my mom was very quick to warn me, ‘No, your father just murdered someone in cold blood.'”
Julian was accused of murder, but the charges were dropped after his filthy rich dad, Armand, personally delivered $50,000 to a lawyer.
Julian then claimed that he acted in self-defense, and the case was closed.
The provisions for him in his father’s will were not made.
Julian’s relationship with his father, Armand, was strained to say the least.
Armand had a net worth of approximately $180 million at the time of his death in 1990; however, his son inherited only a small portion of that money.
According to the comments that Casey gave for the documentary, Julian and Casey were only left a total of $250,000 from Armand’s bequest.
Michael Hammer, who is the grandson of Armand, as well as the son of Julian, the brother of Casey, and the father of Armie, received the most of the money, as well as Armand’s Rolls-Royce.
Casey stated that Julian’s behaviour changed after he found out that he would not be inheriting the majority of his father’s estate.
According to what she mentioned in the document, “He gradually began deteriorating.”
Casey also asserted that Julian frequently pointed his gun at her and threatened to pull the trigger unless she could demonstrate that she was not “possessed.”
Casey said that Julian did this multiple times. According to her, Julian “wasn’t getting help” when he really required it.
He brought his father’s criminal past to light.
Edward Epstein, an investigative journalist who wrote Dossier: The Secret History of Armand Hammer in 1996, revealed in the documentary that Julian Hammer exposed his father Armand’s business wrongdoings after Armand’s death.
Epstein’s book was titled “The Secret History of Armand Hammer.”
Julian was the one who, according to Edward, “gave me all of his private papers as well as recordings of his father.”
“I believe that the reason for this was because he was angry at what his father had done to him by excluding him from the will.
He made up his mind that he was going to bring his father’s shady past to light.
Armand’s involvement in the unlawful funding of Richard Nixon’s Watergate fund during the early 1970s was one among the many crimes he committed.
His daughter Casey stated that Julian had sexually molested her when they were younger.
Casey broke out into tears as she confessed that when she was a child, Julian sexually abused her in the doc.
It was only after a number of years had passed that she was able to recall what had occurred, and even then, she had to check with her mother to make sure it was true.
Nevertheless, Casey confessed in the document that despite the abuse she suffered at her father’s hands, she does still have some positive feelings toward him.
“Because it’s possible that he’s the only one I’m interested in seeing…
It’s not even possible that he’s in paradise or on the other side, in my opinion.
“That’s how I know it’s so deep, and I don’t know if I’ll be normal,” she said.
“That’s how I know it’s so deep.” “The fact that I still think he will save me or be there for me is the thing that bothers me the most.
I was aware of what my father was up to, but I chose not to question him about it because I did not want to hear the words coming out of his mouth.
There’s always a chance that the other person will grow and realise they weren’t trying to cause you any harm.

Julian died in 1996.
Julian had reached the age of 67 when he passed away in March of 1996.
He passed away well over five years after the death of his father Armand.
It is not known what caused Julian’s death. Casey did state in the documentary that her father had a history of both mental illness and substance abuse,
but she did not specify whether or not she believed that either of these issues played a role in her father’s passing.
