saw J Edgar today. a fabulous movie, with lovely little tidbits thrown in that we never knew anything about, like the friendship & photo ops that existed between Mr Hoover and Shirley Temple!!!! crazy & creepy!!
Shriley said in her autobiography ‘My role models were Amelia Earhart and Eleanor Roosevelt and my major crush was J Edgar Hoover.”
Apparently the FBI was called in numerous times to investigate death and extortion threats against her. The threats weren’t reported at the time, she said, for fear that they would stimulate more threats [via]
