Exorcist director (and Chicago native) William Friedkin's early 16mm documentary is about a wrongly accused death row inmate. "The movie was made for Chicago TV but never aired because network executives were afraid it would stir controversy," writes Reader film critic Ben Sachs, "however, Friedkin managed to screen the film for Illinois governor Otto Kerner, who soon commuted Crump's sentence to life in prison."
