About this item

Sometimes Murder Is Just A Way To Pass The Time. In this riveting true story about the notorious 1924 Leopold/Loeb murder case, Orson Wells stars as the brilliant Clarence Darrow whose history-making defense against capitol punishment saved two Chicago teenagers from a death sentence. Though names have changed, this factual, fascinating character study based on news reporter Meyer Levin's bestseller focuses on the two boys - one bossy and intimidating (Bradford Dillman), the other sensitive and introverted (Dean Stockwell) - who thought their superior intellect would enable them to pull off "the perfect crime." E.G. Marshall, Martin Milner and Diane Varsi co-star in this "tense, intelligent" (Time) re-enactment of what was seen as the crime of the century.

Theatrical Trailer, Teaser, Fox Flix: "St. Valentine's Day Massacre" and "Murder, Inc".

old movie

Customer review by nostalgicSenior

4.0 stars by nostalgicSenior

Excellent depiction of Clarence Darrow. The old quality movies did not need the graphic, gross images to convey suspense or terror, and used command of language to express emotion rather than unneccessary vulgarity.
