    "Intriguing true life story"

    Based on a true life legal trial this is a story I vaguely knew about but wanted to hear a dramatisation of. The story touches on themes of Hollywood and the corruption of identity. It tells you as much about Peter Lorre as the bizarre trial itself. Recommended
