TV WORTH WATCHING:

COMPULSION

TCM, 8 p.m. ET; 3/21/2013 

This 1959 movie dramatizes the infamous Leopold and Loeb trial, with Dean Stockwell and Bradford Dillman portraying the young men accused of murder as a “thrill crime” with no motive other than for the sheer thrill of it. Orson Welles shines as their attorney, with one of the best closing arguments ever performed in a film.
