Accurate Portrayal of an Historic Event
14 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

Leon Czolgosz assassinated President William McKinley, who died in September in 1901. In turn, Czolgosz was electrocuted that October, and the film was made in December. It begins with the view of a train, continues to the exterior of the prison, and finally to outside the prisoner's cell. He is led away, we see his electrocution, and he is examined with a stethoscope by two witnesses. I recommend this film to all those interested in American history as it shows an interesting episode in it.
