In one night scene lit by car headlights, the "headlights" are actually just two halogen work lamps mounted on a C-stand. See more »
The two lead characters use a telephone with Touch Tone dialing-systems and other modern devices (TV remote controls, ballpoint pens, etc), even though the film is set in the early 1920's. The placement of such anachronistic objects was deliberate on the part of the filmmakers. See more »
Another biopic of the Leopold and Loeb case - this one took an interestng angle by sensationalizing their sexual relationship, which would've been unheard of in the former "Rope" and "Compulsion". A neat idea.
The cinematography is gorgeous and it housed some very great, sombre atmosphere.
When you weren't drooling over the men's fashion photography, you were thrown head on into one of the strangest relationships ever put on film. Recommended.
