J. Edgar Hoover: A law unto himself
[VIDEO] This week a biopic about this historic figure was released in theaters. J. Edgar starts Leonardo DiCaprio (yeah the guy from Titanic & Inception) plays J. Edgar Hoover as a young man all the way to his old age. The film even touched upon the rumors of Hoover's homosexuality although in reality those rumors have been disputed.
On today's edition of CBS Sunday Morning they do a portrait of the long time director of the FBI. Even touches upon the speculation of his own personal life. As I've stated it has been disputed but we see one authored interviewed who believes that Hoover may have been homosexual.
All the same people still wonder about him. The secrets he kept and the secrets he used. There is a reason that the term FBI files are in the culture today!
