The true story of one of America s most baffling mysteries.
On July 29, 1975, there was no one to rival Jimmy Hoffa as the most powerful man in the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
On July 30, 1975, there was no Jimmy Hoffa.
For over thirty years, federal and local authorities have been digging up farmland, landfills, swimming pools and football fields in search of remains that might answer the question WHERE IS JIMMY HOFFA?
A child of the Depression, James Riddle Hoffa relied on a combination of brute force and utter fearlessness to rise from the lowly position of Detroit warehouse worker to the upper echelons of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
Hoffa nationalized the American trucking industry and even plotted to assassinate Cuban president Fidel Castro! His brash scheming and Mafia connections earned him the enmity of union rivals and unwanted attention from Washington, where President John F. Kennedy and Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy targeted him for scrutiny. Both men would die trying to put Jimmy Hoffa behind bars.
Played in Hollywood films by the likes of Robert Blake, Sylvester Stallone and Jack Nicholson, Jimmy Hoffa appears as himself in newsreels, home movies and courtroom appearances while the testimony of experts, biographers, lawmen and ex-labor officers helps tell the story of one of the most colorful characters in American criminal history.
Available for the first time on DVD
