About this show

In 1932, the world was rocked by the kidnapping of the Lindberg baby, one of the most highly publicized crimes of the 20th century. In 1936, German immigrant and ex-convict Bruno Hauptmann was executed for the kindapping and murder of the child. But was he really guilty? Or was this result of a media circus surrounding the "Trial of the Cenury," rising anti-German sentiment in America, and the power of money and fame to influence our justice system? This early work by renowned writer John Logan mixes historical facts with theatricality to examine the truth behind the trial and the man accused of the unthinkable.
