The FBI Story

Director: Mervyn LeRoy
Year Released: 1959
Rating: 0.0

Ludicrously white-washed depiction of the FBI that was made with the loving generosity of a certain Mr. J. Edgar Hoover, so you know the agency is caressed oh-so tenderly. War vet and Mr. America James Stewart is the thread that takes you from the bumpkin beginnings of the Agency to its Commie-stomping later incarnation and what would eventually become a domestic spying program (apologies if my ideology's sticking out of the bottom of my shorts). At least when the Russians made their propaganda, it was aesthetically ingenious.
