J. Edgar Hoover, powerful head of the F.B.I. for nearly 50 years, looks back on his professional and personal life.
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.
The movie portrays the Lindbergh kidnapping as being the reason for the origin of the crime laboratory. In fact, according to the FBI website, the lab was much earlier. In addition, it was the New Jersey police and Schwarzkopf who did the work on the ladder, including the forensic work that led to the mill where the kidnapper was employed. Schwarzkopf, incidentally, is the father of General Norman Schwarzkopf, the commander of Desert Storm.
