Joseph Edgar Allen John "Eddie" Mannix (February 25, 1891 – August 30, 1963) was an American film studio executive and producer. He is remembered for his work protecting Hollywood stars as a "fixer", a person paid to disguise details of the stars' often colorful private lives to maintain their public image. Among his most lasting contributions to Hollywood was a ledger he maintained that lists the costs and revenues of every MGM film produced between 1924 and 1962.

Hail, Caesar! I'm so ready for this to make my favorites list. The trailer is SO good, the cast is #goals, the Coen Brothers speak for themselves, and it seems like my type of humor. Can't wait!
