J. Edgar

Saw it tonight. Clint Eastwood makes a good movie. Larry would like it. You know, the whole law and order thing.

That was a different movie that also appealed to self professed conservatives.

"Repo Man" (1984, dir. Alec Cox)

Miller: John Wayne was a fag.
All: The hell he was.
Miller: He was, too, you boys. I installed two-way mirrors in his pad in Brentwood, and he come to the door in a dress.

Clyde was an Orangatang buddy!

John Wayne a queen?

Hah!

(Not that there is anything wrong with that....really).

But he just had to always play the super macho bad a$$. I read that he had lifts in all his shoes too.

Whether he directs or acts or both, I'm a huge Eastwood fan. The Outlaw Josey Wales, Pale Rider and Gran Torino are probably my favorites.

One of the greatest western movie scenes ever, "endeavor to persevere"

So, how close to "truth" was the movie?
J Edgard was, ah, a complex individual. Most larger-than-life people are.

That is a good scene. That Indian actor played a lot of interesting and great parts. He has a wonderful way about him.

I saw J. Edgar last night. I liked it a lot, but I find it hard to believe that Hoover was really that much of a whack job. The character depicted in that movie was one sick SOB. Leonardo DiCaprio is a great actor.

Hoover was truly a strange man. He had his agents dig up dirt on all the Politicians (and other folks) so he could blackmail them to keep his job forever.

As for the cross dressing thing I suppose nobody knows for sure but I have read a lot of speculation about it.

It matters not to me his sexual preferences but he had many other things to detract from liking him.

My Mom worked for him back in the late 40's or mid 50's or so. She was known as a real looker and was used to handsy men. Said he was pretty strange.
