Publisher's Summary

The crimes are notable, and the criminals are presented unflinchingly. Such notorious villains as Lizzie Borden and Jesse James are joined by forgotten felons who have been unearthed "from the records and newspapers of every land… from every time." Lou Merrill stars as your host, Thomas Hyland. This "connoisseur of crime, student of violence, and teller of murders" seems to savor the grisly details of each dark deed, eagerly anticipating the wrongdoer's downfall.
Produced and directed by Elliott Lewis, with scripts by Morton Fine and David Friedkin, and with the perpetrators portrayed by Larry Thor, Joseph Kearns, Georgia Ellis, William Conrad, Betty Lou Gerson, and more, Crime Classics is a masterful balance of wit and tension.
