Hail, Caesar! Movie Summary
The film takes place over roughly 30 hours in 1951 during the time of the Red Scare. Eddie Mannix is a “fixer” at Capitol Pictures; working long days to keep his employees in line and the pictures rolling out on time.
His main star, Baird Whitlock, is kidnapped during the filming of a prestige picture called, “Hail, Caesar!” A group of communist writers called, “The Future,” is asking for a $100,000 ransom.
As Baird goes missing, Mannix must also find a husband for his unmarried, but pregnant, synchronized swimming starlet, DeeAnna Moran, but first, he casts his western film star, Hobie Doyle, in a dramatic speaking role. Doyle’s lack of acting ability coupled with a terribly strong southern accent causes drama of it’s own on the set.read full summary
