Title: Richard Loeb

Description: Richard Loeb (Richard Albert Loeb; June 11, 1905-January 28, 1936), left, listens to his friend Nathan Leopold, Jr. (Nathan Freudenthal Leopold, Jr.; December 19, 1904-August 29, 1971), during their trial for kidnapping and murder; the wealthy University of Chicago students were sentenced to life imprisonment for murdering 14-year-old Bobby Franks in 1924; known together as "Leopold and Loeb" during the sensational murder trial, they said their motive to murder the innocent boy was their desire to commit a perfect crime; they retained Clarence Darrow (Clarence Seward Darrow; April 18, 1857-March 13, 1938) for their defense; Darrow was unable to prove the young man did not kill Franks but argued strenuously against capital punishment and favoring rehabilitative prison sentences; Leopold was nineteen at the time of the murder, and Loeb was eighteen, both considering themselves Nietschean supermen who could kidnap and murder someone and get away with it because, as Leopold had written to Loeb before the crime: "A superman is, on account of certain superior qualities inherent in him, exempted from the ordinary laws which govern men. He is not liable for anything he may do;" in hopes of getting favorable prison conditions for himself and Leopold, Loeb bribed a deputy warden with a new convertible automobile as a present; Darrow, one of the greatest criminal lawyers in American criminal trials, said after the trial that resulted in both killers being sentenced to life in prison, about Loeb: "He is better off dead; for him, death is an easier sentence;" two major motion pictures were made about Leopold and Loeb: Rope (1948 U.S. film) and Compulsion (1959 U.S. film);
