Hail, Caesar! by the Coen brothers, plays in the Hollywood of the 1950s and concludes with the so-called Numskull trilogy.
Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) is a fixer washed with all waters in the Hollywood of 50s. Acting as from the background PR Agent ensures he grow the ‘vagaries’ of the stars not to media scandals, but at most as newspaper ducks. Its services are much in demand in Tinseltown – another feature of its qualities that little of it is public. A persistent client of Mannix is a successful young actor and notorious womanizer (Channing Tatum), his worst enemy the gossip columnist Hedda Hopper.
