Crime of the Century DVD (1996)
In 1932, the nation was shocked when the 14-month-old son of Charles Lindberg was kidnapped, held for ransom, and murdered. Two years later, Bruno Richard Hauptmann was arrested, convicted, and executed. This film dramatizes the investigation against Hauptmann, the trial, and the execution, painting a picture of a corrupt police force under pressure to finger a killer framing an innocent man by manufacturing evidence, paying-off and blackmailing witnesses, and covering up exculpatory evidence. Delivered sealed in case with artwork as shown on our website.
Starring: Stephen Rea, Isabella Rosellini, J.T. Walsh, Michael Moriarty
Viewer Review: "This is a great film. Stephen Rea and Isabella Rosellini are wonderful as Hauptmann and his wife. As they say in the film, the case against Hauptmann 'smells like a cesspool' All of the evidence against him was either manufactured or misrepresented. There is no doubt this man was sent to his death because of a diabolical frame up. They do an excellent job of showing it 'point by point'. Rea's performance stirs the viewer to care for the accused Hauptmann and intends to set Bruno Hauptmann's side of the story straight. This movie is a must see!"
