'Killing Jimmy Hoffa: 40th Anniversary Edition'
(DVD / NR / 2015 / MVD Visual)

Overview: Jimmy Hoffa's disappearance is one of the great crimes of the century. Despite a massive Federal investigation spanning 4 decades and hundreds of suspects, only the general contours of the crime are known. In the American mythology Hoffa is both hero and villain; a self-made man who ran the nation's largest union and was so beloved by the rank and file Teamsters he represented that they supported him as union president even as he served time in prison.

DVD Verdict: Celebrating it's 40th Anniversary, and running at only 79 minutes, for those that either know the story, or are still interested in knowing more about the case, 'Killing Jimmy Hoffa: 40th Anniversary Edition' is one damn good staring point, that's for sure. After 40 years, America's most iconic missing person case is still unsolved. 'Killing Jimmy Hoffa: 40th Anniversary Edition' explores not only the mystery of Hoffa's disappearance, bit perhaps more importantly, his life and times in 20th century America.

In the American mythology Hoffa is both hero and villain; a self-made man who ran the nation's largest union and was so beloved by the rank and file Teamsters he represented that they supported him as union president even as he served time in prison. Hoffa's name is synonymous with corruption thanks to Bobby Kennedy's campaign against him, but the truth is much more complex.

Hoffa's glory years coincided with the golden age of the Union movement and the American economy; he also was enmeshed in the Machiavellian world of organized crime. 'Killing Jimmy Hoffa: 40th Anniversary Edition' tells the whole story for the first time, using exclusive interviews, never before seen news footage and photographs, and revealing the real story of the day he died.

So, did Jimmy Hoffa help murder JFK? Did Hoffa really work for the Mafia? Was Hoffa an effective union leader, in general? All these questions, and so many more get examined and delved into throughout the 79 minutes, and for the first time, the true story of when, where and why James Hoffa was murdered and why his body will never be found. This is a Full Screen Presentation (1.33:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
