ARE USUALLY - "The stories begin. The stories end. However the work of Eddie Mannix doesn't
So says a booming voice whole "Hail, Caesar! " - a show set for release by Universal Pictures on
The film can be a Hollywood fantasy, written and directed by Ethan and Joel Coen. Josh Brolin
stars, in a very role inspired by and named for Eddie Mannix, a studio "fixer" who for years kept
obstreperous celebrities coherent, and beyond your gossip columns.
The truth Mr. Mannix, who died with the myocardial infarction in 1963, was the general manager
of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. According to E. J. Fleming's "The Fixers: Eddie Mannix, Howard
Strickling and also the MGM Publicity Machine" as well as sources, his was an all-purpose job. It
involved tracking movie budgets (Mr. Mannix reported daily to Louis B. Mayer, and spied on him
for the studio's New York-based overseer, Nicholas M. Schenk); monitoring Western Union traffic
(he was thought to are in reality handed every telegram sent or received by an M. G. M. player);

married manufacturing chief Irving Thalberg, after the fling with Mr. Mayer, approximately writes
In "Hail, Caesar!, " Mr. Brolin reaches the spirit. He hunts up a husband for his bawdy, pregnant
water ballet star, played by Scarlett Johansson, and slaps some sense into George Clooney, who
plays a none-too-bright actor kidnapped, and intellectually seduced, utilizing a ring of Communist
screenwriters. That group is supervised simply by a Soviet agent, Channing Tatum, who escapes

asked to control scandals for celebrities like Charlie Sheen and Bill Cosby, along with a dollop
together with the crisis consultant Allan Mayer, whose behind-the-scenes advice has helped the
Academy of Film Arts and Sciences protect its image.
You may need political maneuvering from Matthew Hiltzik, who worked for Hillary Clinton and
employed to keep Harvey Weinstein beyond trouble; some power-agent work from Ari Emanuel of
William Morris Endeavor; that help from more than one these quiet, intricately wired physical
production executives, who seemingly know the many secrets and where they could be kept.
Certainly one of the this last might be Andrew Z. Davis, the president of production administration
for Sony's Columbia and TriStar film units. Those occupy the Culver City studio which was once
patrolled by Mr. Mannix, and it is still lined with buildings named for Mannix pals like Mr. Gable
and Jimmy Stewart.
Be sure you00 religion, no individual may match giving her a very Mr. Mannix. In the heyday,
unlike those mild-mannered contemporary operatives, having been suspected of plotting murder,
and accused by press of beating his wife, who died within the car wreck in Palm Springs just
before a planned divorce filing. But he was nonetheless buried at Holy Cross Cemetery, on Sept.
3, 1963, following your solemn high requiem Mass.
Cardinal James Francis McIntyre, then archbishop of La, presided. Mr. Stewart must have been a
pallbearer. Given that Hollywood columnist Louella Parsons wrote just a couple of years earlier,
