On March 1, 1932, the infant Charles Lindbergh, Jr., the son and namesake of the famed pilot, is kidnapped. After he is later found dead, a German immigrant named Bruno Hauptmann is tried for kidnapping and murder.
Rather curiously, a brief scene is included in which people in Germany (by implication, supporters of the Third Reich and the German-American Bund) are seen raising money for Bruno Hauptmann's defense fund. In reality, Charles Lindbergh was notorious for his early support for Adolf Hitler, although, as World War II neared, he repudiated these views.
In the first 20 minutes of the movie (taking place in 1932) they showed a 1938 or 1939 Ford Police car (with siren).
In deep appreciation this film is dedicated to Leonard Horn for whom it all began.
