I had just finished reading a book on the famous Leopold and Loeb murder case, and decided to see the movie based on the incident. While the names were changed for the movie, the facts of the actual case were used as the background. While the movie didn't show the murder of Bobby Franks, one has to remember when the film was made, in the 50s, at a time when those things weren't shown it movies. But you get the idea, and the movie covers them well. It is pretty true to the actual facts, and I enjoyed it.
