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.

  1. Hey Chris, have you seen Sullivan’s Travels? The coens got the title oh brother from the film within a film there. It’s a classic, one of the best comedies from the 40s. Maybe you and Lori can review for your new show.

        1. IDK if O Brother will be on MHM. If not, it will be on Movie House Concessions…especially since it’s based on Homer’s Odyssey which is one of my favorite books.
