J. Edgar Hoover:
Let me tell you something. The SCLC has direct Communist ties. Even great men can be corrupted, can't they? Communism is not a political party. It is a disease. It corrupts the soul, turning men, even the gentlest of men, into vicious evil tyrants.
While J Edgar eats dinner at home with his mother and his niece, the niece's fork arm changes positions several times between shots, resulting in a vanishing carrot that eventually gets eaten twice.
