In the 1920’s, two wealthy young intellectuals (Leopold and Loeb) decided to commit the perfect murder to prove their superiority. They weren’t as superior as they thought; they were caught, and Clarence Darrow defended them, getting them life sentences instead of death.
This, except for the trial stage, is the plot of “Murder By Numbers.” (The crime-scene technology is updated; these kids are really smart.) Have their been other movies based on, or inspired by, the Leopold-Loeb case?
By the way, I liked the movie. Imagine a world where getting sex is no problem!
