C&L's Sat Nite Chiller Theater: Compulsion (1959)

Have you seen this Orson Welles movie?

Richard Fleischer directed Orson Welles in this classic thriller based loosely on the 1924 Leopold and Loeb murder case.

At the time, Welles's own thriller -- "Touch of Evil" -- was being praised in Europe but largely ignored in his own country, and he was more than a little pissed that he was not tapped to direct Compulsion himself. This made the set of Compulsion a rather volatile place to work, but in front of the camera Welles was a pro, turning in a standout performance as the defense attorney, Jonathan Wilk.

Enjoy!
