Goofs

When President Truman informs Hoover that the FBI will not control the newly formed CIA, the President says he doesn't want to create an American KGB. The KGB was not formed until 1954, over a year after Truman left office. At the time the CIA was formed in 1947, the Soviet intelligence / secret police agency was called the MGB. See more »

Pretty good document
24 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Lenny Maltin speaks of it as an average piece of work. I don't agree. This is a very interesting TV movie, which shows aspects of the FBI boss that Clint Eastwood did not in his 2011 movie starring Lenny Di caprio. Of course Trat Williams plays sometimes in the Brando GODFATHER way, especially in the final scènes when he fires Sullivan. You think here a s a kind of Alan Pakula manner of filming. Louise Fletcher is pretty good too as the Hoover's mum character. Yes I recommand it.
