Plot Summary

Biopic of J. Edgar Hoover told by Hoover as he recalls his career for a biography. Early in his career, Hoover fixated on Communists, anarchists and any other revolutionary taking action against the U.S. government. He slowly builds the agency's reputation, becoming the sole arbiter of who gets hired and fired. One of his hires is Clyde Tolson who is quickly promoted to Assistant Director and would be Hoover's confidant and companion for the rest of Hoover's life. Hoover's memories have him playing a greater role in the many high profile cases the FBI was involved in - the Lindbergh baby kidnapping, the arrest of bank robbers like John Dillinger - and also show him to be quite adept at manipulating the various politicians he's worked with over his career, thanks in large part to his secret files.

Trivia There was actually a huge fight between J. Edgar Hoover and Clyde Tolson in a hotel during one of their trips. According to Clint Eastwood, there are several testimonies of maids that talked about the room being destroyed after the discussion. However, writer Dustin Lance Black dramatized the content of the argument. See more »
