Jimmy Hoffa Disappears from a Detroit Parking Lot (1975)

Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, was an influential US labor leader with alleged ties to the Mafia. He led with brawn and charisma and made toughness his policy—whether dealing with management or with rival unions.
