Went to the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood for a screening of the 1992 film "Swoon" about the notorious 1924 Leopold and Loeb murder case -- America's first "crime of the century." This happened right near the advent of radio, which led to the sensationalism of the crime.
This movie is based on the same murder case as Alfred Hitchcock's "Rope."
After the screening one of the film's stars, Craig Chester, was on hand to answer questions.
