Trivia

Partially based on the true story of the 1944 execution in the electric chair of George Junius Stinney, Jr., a 14-year-old African-American boy convicted of the rape and murder of two young white girls in South Carolina. He is, as of 2012, the youngest person ever executed in the US and as of 2017 has been proven to have been innocent of the crimes he was executed for. See more »

Goofs

In the flashback scene, when Sheriff Hiram Stoker is trying to get Linus to sign the confession, he asks Linus at one point if he knew where the stick used to kill the Ellerby girls was. If the murder weapon had not been recovered at this point, Sheriff Stoker would have had no way of knowing a stick of wood was the murder weapon. Only the killer could have known this. The kind of head injuries the Ellerby girls likely sustained could have been caused by any blunt object. See more »
