Released in 1959, the film is based on the 1956 novel of the same name, which is base on the Leopold & Loeb murder trial. The film follows two young men who decide to commit a crime, for the sake of seeing if they can get away with it. However with unforeseen evidence at the scene, the doors are closing in quickly.

With a scene-stealing performance by Orson Welles as their attorney, this film is a real gem, featuring great performences from Dean Stockwell and Bradford Dillman.
