How to plan and carry out the murder that did not come to her and her actors have achieved "the aesthetic qualities of the perfect murder"? This dealt a pair of University of Chicago students Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb. After seven months of preparation, conviction that "Superman is not subject to the normal laws governing other people", embarked on his "artistic act" and killed the younger cousin of one of them. The possibility of detection can not accept.

The most famous detective case in the history of Chicago became the inspiration for a play by Patrick Hamilton's Rope, where two students Brandon and Granillo makes the "perfect murder" friend. His body was placed in the ark, to whom he served during the party to which they invite and father of the victim.
