J. Edgar Hoover And The Great American Inquisitions (1999)
This program offers a blistering critique of J. Edgar Hoover, who ran the FBI for over four decades as a talented propagandist, inquisitor, and obsessive Communist hunter. Cultivating an atmosphere of paranoia, Hoover allegedly used the power at his command to compile secret files on thousands of citizens and to direct illegal operations in the service of purging America of those he suspected to be traitors. 93 min.
