I remember watching this movie when it first aired. Although I can't distinctly remember a lot about the movie, I have seen footage from crime/history programs on the Lindbergh kidnapping. It's a very gripping and, as you said, sad story. I think Ralph Fiennes would make a good Bruno Hauptmann. I don't know who could play Lindbergh. Maybe there's a lesser known actor who looks like him. You're right about The Changeling (with Angelina Jolie) having some similar elements to The Lindbergh Kidnapping Case. I think it would make a really good movie, so long as someone took the time to tell the true story and not sensationalize or skew the story. Clint Eastwood's movie, The Changeling, was based on an actual, but lesser known case. I really enjoyed The Changeling because he paid so much attention to period detail and I thought the characters seemed realistic and not one dimensional. I think the right producer and director could do a great job telling the story of the Lindbergh kidnapping and trial.
