The story of the late J. Edgar Hoover, who was head of the FBI from 1924-1972. The film follows Hoover from his racket-busting days through his reign under eight U.S. presidents.
The film was shot at authentic locations such as J. Edgar Hoover's office and home, the FBI's headquarters in Washington, DC, and training facility in Virginia, and the Mayflower Hotel (where Hoover ate lunch daily).
