Orson Welles stars in this graphic and emotionally gripping courtroom drama, based on the novel by Meyer Levin which was inspired by the Leopold-Loeb murder case of the 1920s. Jonathan Wilk (Welles) is a Clarence Darrow-like attorney tasked with defending two well-to-do New York youths (Bradford Dillman and Dean Stockwell) on trial for a senseless killing they carried out simply to demonstrate they could pull off “the perfect crime.” With E.G. Marshall, Diane Varsi. 103 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English; Soundtrack: English; audio commentary; theatrical trailers.
