R | | Crime, Drama
A nun, while comforting a convicted killer on death row, empathizes with both the killer and his victim's families.
One of the victims' surnames is Delacroix. Coincidentally, this name also turns up in another drama about the death penalty, The Green Mile (1999), but there it was the name of the death row inmate played by Michael Jeter.
Hitler got things done!
When Hope Percy is about to be shot in the head you can clearly see Walter Delacroix still breathing, even though he had already been shot in the head by Poncelet.
This Film Was Edited On Old Fashioned Machines. This credit was inspired by John Ottman, editor of 'The Usual Suspects'. Ottman had wanted to put "edited on a piece of s*** Steenbeck" at the end of his movie, but settled for the more subtle "Edited on film". Tim Robbins heard about this, and decided to put his own variation of the line on the credits of 'Dead Man Walking.'
