J. Edgar Hoover, powerful head of the F.B.I. for nearly 50 years, looks back on his professional and personal life.
According to Armie Hammer, Leonardo DiCaprio and him proposed to Clint Eastwood to make the sexual relationship between the characters to be graphic, but he refused, arguing the screenplay didn't call for it.
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.
