To celebrate the November 11 release (Nov. 9 limited) of Clint Eastwood’s biopic J. Edgar, we’re giving away a prize pack to help you on your way to becoming, like J. Edgar Hoover, the most powerful man in the world.

During his lifetime, J. Edgar Hoover would rise to be the most powerful man in America. As head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for nearly 50 years, he would stop at nothing to protect his country. Through eight presidents and three wars, Hoover battled against threats both real and perceived, often bending the rules to keep his countrymen safe. His methods were at once ruthless and heroic, with the admiration of the world his most coveted, if ever elusive, prize.

Hoover was a man who placed great value on secrets – particularly those of others – and was not afraid to use that information to exert authority over the leading figures in the nation. Understanding that knowledge is power and fear poses opportunity, he used both to gain unprecedented influence and to build a reputation that was both formidable and untouchable.

He was as guarded in his private life as he was in his public one, allowing only a small and protective inner circle into his confidence. His closest colleague, Clyde Tolson, was also his constant companion. His secretary, Helen Gandy, who was perhaps most privy to Hoover’s designs, remained loyal to the end… and beyond. Only Hoover’s mother, who served as his inspiration and his conscience, would leave him, her passing truly crushing to the son who forever sought her love and approval.

As seen through the eyes of Hoover himself, J. Edgar explores the personal and public life and relationships of a man who could distort the truth as easily as he upheld it during a life devoted to his own idea of justice, often swayed by the darker side of power.

Oscar winner Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven) directed the film from a screenplay by Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black (Milk).

Academy Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio (Inception, The Aviator) stars in the title role. J. Edgar also stars Academy Award® nominee Naomi Watts (21 Grams) as Helen Gandy, Hoover’s longtime secretary; Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Hoover’s protégé Clyde Tolson; Josh Lucas (The Lincoln Lawyer) as the legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh, whose son’s kidnapping changes the public profile of the F.B.I.; and Oscar winner Judi Dench (Shakespeare in Love) as Hoover’s over-protective mother, Annie Hoover.

A Warner Bros. Pictures presentation, “J. Edgar” was produced under the banners of Imagine Entertainment and Malpaso. It will be released in limited markets on Wednesday, November 09, 2011 and expand to a wide release on Friday, November 11, 2011. The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
