A really great adaptation, captures both the essence of the book and the actual occurrences while still being strong solely as a film.

This one holds up better than some of the other iconic 60s crime films. Loved the whole thing, especially the ending. Check out the imdb trivia page to read some pretty creepy facts about the making of this movie.
