The actresses in Hollywoodland lift do the heavy lifting. Diane Lane is excellent as Toni Mannix and even Robin Tunney, who I hated when she was on
Prison Break, is great as Leonore Lemon, George Reeves’ erstwhile fiance. Okay, it’s hard not to love Bob Hoskins as Diane Lane’s husband. For the sake of argument we’ll call him an honorary actress. Bennifer was fine but dull. Perhaps that’s what the real George Reeves was like? And, while I usually love the pointy proboscised Adrien Brody, something about him as a private dick just didn’t quite wash.

Who killed George Reeves? The filmmakers are coy, yet if you pay close attention it’s easy to figure out whodunnit: the Kennedys.
