J. Edgar Hoover, powerful head of the F.B.I. for nearly 50 years, looks back on his professional and personal life.
J. Edgar extensively used real, working cars throughout the film. Many of the vehicles were owned by private collectors and were kept by the owners in excellent condition. In fact, the cars were so clean, the art department had to spray mud and dirt on most of the vehicles in order to portray road conditions of the time.

Moreover, the District of Columbia flag did not exist until 1938.
