The Secret File on J. Edgar Hoover

Feb. 09, 1993
60 minutes

For nearly 50 years, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover amassed secret files on America's most prominent figures, files he used to smear and control presidents and politicians. Frontline reveals how Hoover's own secret life left him open to blackmail by the Mafia and offers a startling new explanation why the FBI allowed the mob to operate unchallenged for over two decaes.

Producer(s): Bill Cran
Stphanie Tepper
