They were homo child killers before it was cool
How dare you defy me!
I don't always start spinoff threads, but when I do, I like to push the envelope....or else go below-low-brow.....
There's a movie about them on Netflix, should I watch it?
Got no idea. Is it a documentary or a moviemovie?
My bad I was visualizing this movie cover...
Sacco and Vanzetti is a 2006 documentary film directed by Peter Miller.
Produced by Peter Miller and Editor Amy Linton, the film presents interviews with researchers and historians of the lives of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, and their trial. It also presents forensic evidence that refutes that used by the prosecution during the trial. Prison letters written by the defendants are read by voice actors with Tony Shalhoub as Sacco and John Turturro as Vanzetti. Interviewees include Howard Zinn, Studs Terkel and Arlo Guthrie.
Sacco and Vanzetti won the 2007 John E. O'Connor Film Award, the annual prize for the best historical film awarded by the American Historical Association. It was released nationally in theaters in March 2007 and later on DVD.
Ferdinando Nicola Sacco (April 22, 1891 – August 23, 1927) and Bartolomeo Vanzetti (June 11, 1888 – August 23, 1927) were Italian-born anarchists who were convicted of murdering two men during the armed robbery of a shoe factory in South Braintree, Massachusetts, United States in 1920. A controversial trial in 1921 led to the men's conviction despite equivocal ballistics evidence and numerous witnesses who claimed Sacco had been in Boston's North End and Vanzetti in Plymouth, Massachusetts on the day of the robbery. To explain why they had been armed on the night of their arrest, both defendants were compelled to detail their anarchist beliefs in court, leading to suspicions that this may have prejudiced the jury. Sacco and Vanzetti were convicted of first-degree murder on July 14, 1921. The jury deliberated just a few hours. A series of appeals followed, funded largely by a private Sacco and Vanzetti Defense Committee.
