Sir Anthony Hopkins was a relative unknown when he took on the role of Bruno Richard Hauptmann in Columbia Pictures' 1976 The Lindbergh Kidnapping Case. Hopkins won an Emmy for his performance. The 1934 Lindbergh trial produced sensational headlines in William Randolph Hearst's newspapers, making it difficult to find an unbiased jury. The Lindbergh kidnapping was the subject of a second film, 1998's The Crime of the Century, a phrase reputedly coined by newspaper reporter Damon Runyon during the trial.
