Did you know?

  • The band playing in the Stork Club in New York is led by Kyle Eastwood, son of this film's director Clint Eastwood.
  • The hardest set to build in this film was the Department Of Justice building. The design of the floor was too complicated to recreate so instead the real floor was photographed and then printed onto MDF boards.
  • Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays J. Edgar Hoover, had almost 80 costume changes in this film.
  • Leonardo DiCaprio's old age make-up was so convincing that on the first day Clint Eastwood walked right past him without recognising who he was.
  • Leonardo DiCaprio and Armie Hammer, who play J. Edgar Hoover and Clyde Tolson, did a lot of research into their roles in this film. Armie Hammer even hired a professional researcher to help him learn more about his character.
