The fascinating documentary film The People vs. Leo Frank recently shown on PBS is now available for sale at the website and they are including a new complementary Teacher’s Guide developed by the Anti-Defamation League for schools and institutions. The film weaves first-rate drama with recollections, commentary, and archival images. Will Janowitz (The Sopranos) is Leo Frank and Seth Gilliam (The Wire) plays Jim Conley. The script is drawn entirely from the historical record.
