Trivia
This was Dan Dailey's last movie, released 10 months before his death at age 64.
Share this
The film had a formal screening at the Kennedy Center, but members of both parties in the largely political audience were irritated by the film's unflattering depiction of not only Republicans such as Richard Nixon, but also Democrats such as the Kennedys and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Share this
The film was shot at authentic locations such as J. Edgar Hoover's office and home, the FBI's headquarters in Washington, DC, and training facility in Virginia, and the Mayflower Hotel (where Hoover ate lunch daily).
