Eddie Mannix (Brolin), is the head of Capitol Pictures movie studio. Mannix spends long hours at the studio making sure all the pictures stay on track and checks in nightly with the church for a confession because he is stealing cigarettes and lying about it to his wife.

This meeting brought a chuckle to the crowd.
