Editorial Reviews

In the aftermath of his 1927 solo transatlantic flight, Colonel Charles Augustus Lindbergh-Lucky Lindy-became the most famous human being on earth. But on the evening of March 1, 1932 Lucky Lindy's luck ran out.-  Bold kidnappers snatched his baby son, Charlie, from the family home near Hopewell, New Jersey while everyone in the house was awake.-  Negotiations with the kidnappers stretched out for weeks, but little Charlie never came back. His body was discovered not five miles from Hopewell. A German immigrant, Bruno Richard Hauptmann, was executed for the crime. - But was he really guilty? - And could there be other kidnappers that were never caught?

The famous 1932 kidnapping of the son of Charles A. Lindberg has fascinated folks for years and there have been many books. "Charlie" - the "baby" was just 20 months. The accused kidnapper - Bruno Richard Hauptmann was found guilty (and acted alone) and was executed.

This 54-minute NOVA episode takes another look at the case and uses a retired FBI "profiler" to visit the Lindbergh Estate (which still stands in Hopewell, NJ) to investigate whether Hauptman could have acted alone and whether the kidnapping was arranged -in fact - by Lindbergh himself! There are interviews with the author of "Kidnap" - a book on the case - and another retired detective. But much of the show is filled with "recreations" as well as archival footage (nearly equal amounts of both). This show will appeal to those who have long been fascinated with the case but - as with similar show - no actual conclusion can be drawn from the evidence shown and no one is re-opening the case.
As is usual for Nova shows, the quality is high. There are no bonus features/

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

You won’t find any answers to the question posed by the title in this NOVA production. In fact, you won’t even get an unbiased – and certainly not a comprehensive – look at all of the aspects of this case. I have to say I’ve lost a good bit of respect for John Douglas after watching his investigation of the Lindbergh kidnapping and murder case. Douglas, of course, is essentially the best-known criminal profiler in America. I’ve read and been impressed by several of his books; in fact, Douglas’ books had done much to improve my opinion on criminal profiling. This presentation of the Lindbergh investigation, though, has only reinforced my original opinion that criminal profiling has more than a few major bits of hokum associated with it. In this case, Hauptmann happens to match Douglas’ profile of someone capable of committing this crime, so he ignores any evidence that Hauptmann was innocent – and, unfortunately, this type of bias goes on to further undermine Douglas’ whole argument. Douglas isn’t looking for the Lindberg kidnapper(s) – he’s looking for suspects who fit his profile of the criminals.

So let’s start with Hauptmann. Whatever the truth of his story as to how some of the ransom money came into his possession, it should at least be heard – but you won’t hear it here. You also won’t hear anything about how Lindbergh himself and the mysterious Dr. Condon (Lindbergh’s go-between with the alleged kidnappers) suddenly changed their testimony at the trial to directly implicate Hauptmann as “Cemetery John,” the man who took the ransom money from Condon. Personally, I don’t think you can believe anything Condon ever said, but we know that Lindbergh lied on the stand about the man whom he heard say just two words.

It went south when they brought in some crackpot saying he believes Charles Lindbergh Sr. mastermind the kidnapping. Presented no real additional evidence.

I so wanted to believe that Hauptmann was not guilty. I have read about a dozen books about the crime and its investigation, and agree with Kennedy that there were so many flaws, that Hauptmann was not represented fairly by Reilly, and that just common sense would indicate that faced with the certainty of electrocution Hauptmann would either confess to his part or identify others, to either save his life or at least to gain money for his widow and child when offered a vast sum to confess or help. But subsequent tests by many experts have now pretty clearly identified the board taken from the garage as having been used in the construction of the ladder,whereas the testimony at the time by the expert was suspect. So, Kennedy's version was just as subject to criticism as many of the books and articles written in support of the verdict and non-commutation. The writer plays quite loose with the facts, to serve his own views.
