Factual error: In the scene when the two criminals are in the hardware store, two vehicles are parked outside that are clearly late 1960's automobiles, despite the film being set in 1959. (00:15:25)
A prominent family in a sleepy Kansas town are murdered by two criminals. The film follows the effects of the killings on the town of Holcomb and also taps into the terrible, pathetic life of of one of the killers, Perry Smith.
Perry: It's true! Really true! We're on our way and never coming back. Never! And no regrets.
Dick: For you. You're leaving nothing. What about my old man... and my mother? They'll still be there when my checks start bouncing.
Perry: It's nice the way you think about your folks.
Dick: Yeah! I'm a real thoughtful bastard.
