Sacco and Vanzetti


2h 1m 1970

Brief Synopsis

In 1921, two Italian immigrants were tried for the murders of two payroll guards during a robbery near Boston. Because the two Italians were anarchists, their political beliefs overshadowed the trial and made them into an international cause celebre. Their conviction led to a years-long fight to prove their trial had been unfair and that someone else had committed the crimes. Eventually they became martyrs for their cause, and their guilt or innocence is still hotly debated to this day.
