In 1958 Nebraska 19 year old garbageman Charles Starkweather goes on a murder spree with his 14 year old girlfriend Caril Ann Fugate killing 11 people in three months, introducing America to spree killing.

According to the screen captions, the Starkweather murders took place in Nebraska and Wyoming in late 1957 and early 1958, a time of brutal winter weather. Yet nobody is wearing heavy winter clothing, there is no breath condensation, the trees are green and leafy, and there are bright red flowers in full bloom. The movie was obviously filmed in the late spring or summer.
