The FBI Story (25-Jan-1960)

Director: Mervyn LeRoy

Writers: Richard L. Breen; John Twist

Based on a book by: Don Whitehead

Music by: Max Steiner

Keywords: Crime

The story of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is told in episodic flashbacks through the eyes of fictional FBI agent Chip Hardesty; he investigates various iconic crime figures including Dillinger, Ma Barker, etc., as well as organizations including the KKK. In later years, Communists are a national security threat. Produced with the cooperation of J. Edgar Hoover, so a very clean cut and whitewashed depiction. Jimmy Stewart carries an otherwise mediocre film.
