In 1924, the world was shocked by the infamous Leopold/Loeb case: two teenagers conspired to commit the perfect crime to show their intellectual superiority. It was truly a cause celebre. This sensational drama from director Richard Fleischer ("10 Rillington Place") is loosely based on the original case. The boys came from rich families, their perspective was truly warped, and over the course of much-celebrated court cases, cat and mouse games lead to the outcome. Orson Welles plays Jonathan Wilk, the lawyer who will take the boys through their last appeal process, and he brings all his mellifluous powers of vocal persuasion to the cause. Bradford Dillman and Dean Stockwell play the young boys with appropriate nervous tension.
