"4 Stars! Incisive, Engrossing..." -Leonard Maltin, Movie & Video Guide
In Cold Blood is the powerful, true story of a callous murder, based upon the best-selling novel by Truman Capote. A prosperous and respected Kansas farmer, his wife and his two teenage children are wantonly and brutally slaughtered. The murderers are two mindless ex-convict drifters: Perry Smith (Robert Blake) and Dick Hickock (Scott Wilson). The story penetrates the inner workings of the criminals' minds as it follows their purposeless meanderings through Mexico and the United States in evasion of the law and finally to the dramatic end of their journey.
