Sometimes murder is just a way to pass the time! The great Richard Fleischer (The Vikings) directed this riveting true story about the notorious 1924 Leopold/Loeb murder case. Hollywood Icon Orson Welles (The Third Man, Touch of Evil) stars as the brilliant Clarence Darrow whose history making defense against capitol punishment saved two Chicago teenagers from a death sentence. Though names were changed, this factual and fascinating characters study focuses on the two boys - one bossy and intimidating (Bradford Dillman, The Mephisto Waltz), the other sensitive and introverted (Dean Stockwell, Married to the Mob) - who thought their superior intellect would enable them to pull of "the perfect crime" This tense, intelligent re-enactment of what was seen as the crime of the century, Co-stars Diane Varsi (Peyton Place), E.G Marshall (12 Angry Men), Martin Miller (TV's Adam-12 and Route 66), Gavin Maclead (TV's The Love Boat and The Mary Tyler Moore Show) and Richard Anderson (TV's The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman).
