Long DescriptionApproved by J. Edgar Hoover himself, this idealized telling of the FBI's origins spans the years between Hoover's appointment in the '20s and the Red Scare of the mid-'50s. Beginning with an investigation that showcases the talent and resources available to the FBI, dedicated agent Chip Hardesty (Jimmy Stewart) tells new recruits how the agency was streamlined into a professional crime-fighting organization. Using his personal life story as a backdrop, Hardesty takes the new men (and the viewer) through cases involving gangsters, land grabs, and Communist spies. Vera Miles plays Hardesty's dedicated wife, while Murray Hamilton helps out as gung-ho fellow agent Sam Crandall. Lots of pro-Hoover PR and propaganda, but it never gets in the way of the action or family drama. Interestingly, the history of the Hardesty family is almost as good as the history of the agency. --Mark Savary

Over the past couple weeks we have gone through and updated the way you can help us keep the site up to date. If you are a registered memeber of the site, you can help and earn lookup credits by validating products and putting things in the right category.

We just added a new page that make it very easy to categorize products that are not already in a category. Visit the UNCATEGORISED PAGE and see if you can help us out. If you know where the product goes it only takes a couple clicks to categorize it. If not, just skip it and check the next one.

You get to see a list of 10 items at a time. Once you have looked at them you can use the link at the bottom to get a new set. Categorize as many or as few items as you like.

If you want to help even more, you can go to the PENDING CHANGES page and check the items that other people have entered into the system. If there is nothing pending on this page, you will automatically be given a list of items that need to be categorised. So if you like, you can use this one page do perform both tasks.

We spend a good deal of time each day performing these tasks ourselves but your help is always appreciated and makes things go a lot faster. We plan on making more improvements over time so feel free to send suggestions.
