Sacco and Vanzetti (End scene) Ennio Morricone

In that incident, Carlo Valdinocci, a former editor of Cronaca Sovversiva , related to Sacco and Vanzetti, was killed when the bomb intended for Palmer exploded in the editor's hands.

Radical pamphlets entitled "Plain Words" signed "The Anarchist Fighters" were found at the scene of this and several other midnight bombings that night.

Several Galleanist associates were suspected or interrogated about their roles in the bombing incidents. Roberto Elia, a fellow New York printer and admitted anarchist, [14] was later deposed in the inquiry, and testified that Salsedo had committed suicide for fear of betraying the others.

He portrayed himself as the 'strong' one who had resisted the police. On April 15, , two men were robbed and killed while transporting the company's payroll in two large steel boxes to the main factory.

One of them, Alessandro Berardelli [17] [18] [19] —a security guard—was shot four times [20] as he reached for his hip-holstered. The other man, Frederick Parmenter [21] —a paymaster who was unarmed—was shot twice: [20] once in the chest and a second time, fatally, in the back as he attempted to flee.

As the car was being driven away, the robbers fired wildly at company workers nearby. Five of these.

The Winchester cartridge case was of a relatively obsolete cartridge loading, which had been discontinued from production some years earlier.

Two days after the robbery, police located the robbers' Buick; several gauge shotgun shells were found on the ground nearby.

An earlier attempted robbery of another shoe factory occurred on December 24, , in Bridgewater , Massachusetts, by people identified as Italian who used a car that was seen escaping to Cochesett in West Bridgewater.

Police speculated that Italian anarchists perpetrated the robberies to finance their activities. Bridgewater police chief Michael E.

Stewart suspected that known Italian anarchist Ferruccio Coacci was involved. Coacci was slated for deportation on April 15, , the day of the Braintree holdup, but telephoned with the excuse that his wife was ill.

On April 16, officers discovered Coacci at home and determined that he had given a false alibi for not showing up for deportation. They offered him another week, but Coacci declined and left for Italy on April 18, with his family along with his possessions.

When Chief Stewart later arrived at the Coacci home, only Buda was living there, and when questioned, he said that Coacci owned a. When Stewart discovered that Coacci had worked for both shoe factories that had been robbed, he returned with the Bridgewater police, Mario Buda was not home [28] , but on May 5, , he arrived at the garage with three other men, later identified as Sacco, Vanzetti, and Riccardo Orciani.

The four men knew each other well; Buda would later refer to Sacco and Vanzetti as "the best friends I had in America" [32].

Police were alerted, but the men left. Buda, who had vanished by then, did not resurface until back in Italy. Sacco and Vanzetti boarded a streetcar, but were tracked down and soon arrested.

When searched by police, both denied owning any guns, but were found to be holding loaded pistols. Sacco was found to have an Italian passport, anarchist literature, a loaded.

Orciani was arrested May 6, but gave the alibi that he had been at work on the day of both crimes. Sacco had been at work on the day of the Bridgewater crimes but said that he had the day off on April 15—the day of the Braintree crimes— and was charged with those murders.

The self-employed Vanzetti had no such alibis and was charged for the attempted robbery and attempted murder in Bridgewater and the robbery and murder in the Braintree crimes.

Following Sacco and Vanzetti's indictment for murder for the Braintree robbery, Galleanists and anarchists in the United States and abroad began a campaign of violent retaliation.

Two days later on September 16, , Mario Buda allegedly orchestrated the Wall Street bombing , where a time-delay dynamite bomb packed with heavy iron sash-weights in a horse-drawn cart exploded, killing 38 people and wounding Rather than accept court appointed counsel, Vanzetti chose to be represented by John P.

Vahey, a former foundry superintendent and future state court judge who had been practicing law since , most notably with his brother James H.

Vahey and his law partner Charles Hiller Innes. A few weeks earlier he had given a speech to new American citizens decrying Bolshevism and anarchism's threat to American institutions.

He supported the suppression of functionally violent radical speech, and incitement to commit violent acts. The trial began on June 22, The prosecution presented several witnesses who put Vanzetti at the scene of crime.

Their descriptions varied, especially with respect to the shape and length of Vanzetti's mustache. The defense produced 16 witnesses, all Italians from Plymouth, who testified that at the time of the attempted robbery they had bought eels from Vanzetti for Eastertide , in accordance with their traditions.

Such details reinforced the difference between the Italians and the jurors. Some testified in imperfect English, others through an interpreter, whose inability to speak the same dialect of Italian as the witnesses hampered his effectiveness.

On cross examination, the prosecution found it easy to make the witnesses appear confused about dates. A boy who testified admitted to rehearsing his testimony.

The defense case went badly and Vanzetti did not testify in his own defense. He said that Vanzetti chose not to testify after consulting with Sacco.

In these circumstances a verdict of not guilty would have been very unusual". That analysis claimed that "no one could say that the case was closely tried or vigorously fought for the defendant".

Vanzetti complained during his sentencing on April 9, , for the Braintree crimes, that Vahey "sold me for thirty golden money like Judas sold Jesus Christ.

On July 1, , the jury deliberated for five hours and returned guilty verdicts on both counts, armed robbery and first-degree murder.

On August 16, , he sentenced Vanzetti on the charge of armed robbery to a term of 12 to 15 years in prison, the maximum sentence allowed. Sacco and Vanzetti both denounced Thayer.

Vanzetti wrote, "I will try to see Thayer death [ sic ] before his pronunciation of our sentence" and asked fellow anarchists for "revenge, revenge in our names and the names of our living and dead.

In , advocates for Sacco and Vanzetti charged that this case was brought first because a conviction for the Bridgewater crimes would help convict him for the Braintree crimes, where evidence against him was weak.

The prosecution countered that the timing was driven by the schedules of different courts that handled the cases. Sacco and Vanzetti went on trial for their lives in Dedham , Massachusetts, May 21, , at Dedham, Norfolk County for the Braintree robbery and murders.

Webster Thayer again presided; he had asked to be assigned to the trial. Katzmann again prosecuted for the State.

Vanzetti was represented by brothers Jeremiah and Thomas McAnraney. Sacco was represented by Fred H. Moore and William J. The choice of Moore, a former attorney for the Industrial Workers of the World , proved a key mistake for the defense.

A notorious radical from California, Moore quickly enraged Judge Thayer with his courtroom demeanor, often doffing his jacket and once, his shoes.

Reporters covering the case were amazed to hear Judge Thayer, during a lunch recess, proclaim, "I'll show them that no long-haired anarchist from California can run this court!

I'll show them. Authorities anticipated a possible bomb attack and had the Dedham courtroom outfitted with heavy, sliding steel doors and cast-iron shutters that were painted to appear wooden.

The Commonwealth relied on evidence that Sacco was absent from his work in a shoe factory on the day of the murders; that the defendants were in the neighborhood of the Braintree robbery-murder scene on the morning when it occurred, being identified as having been there seen separately and also together; that the Buick getaway car was also in the neighborhood and that Vanzetti was near and in it; that Sacco was seen near the scene of the murders before they occurred and also was seen to shoot Berardelli after Berardelli fell and that that shot caused his death; that used shell casings were left at the scene of the murders, some of which could have been found to have been discharged from a.

Goodridge, who stated that as the getaway car raced within twenty-five feet of him, one of the car's occupants, whom he identified as being Sacco, pointed a gun in his direction.

Both defendants offered alibis that were backed by several witnesses. Vanzetti testified that he had been selling fish at the time of the Braintree robbery.

Sacco testified that he had been in Boston applying for a passport at the Italian consulate. He stated he had lunched in Boston's North End with several friends, each of whom testified on his behalf.

Prior to the trial, Sacco's lawyer, Fred Moore , went to great lengths to contact the consulate employee whom Sacco said he had talked with on the afternoon of the crime.

Once contacted in Italy, the clerk said he remembered Sacco because of the unusually large passport photo he presented. The clerk also remembered the date, April 15, , but he refused to return to the United States to testify a trip requiring two ship voyages , citing his ill health.

Instead he executed a sworn deposition that was read aloud in court and quickly dismissed. Much of the trial focused on material evidence, notably bullets, guns, and the cap.

Prosecution witnesses testified that Bullet III , the. Sacco, saying he had nothing to hide, had allowed his gun to be test-fired, with experts for both sides present, during the trial's second week.

The prosecution matched bullets fired through the gun to those taken from one of the slain men. In court, District Attorney Katzmann called two forensic gun expert witnesses, Capt.

William Proctor of the Massachusetts State Police , who testified that they believed that of the four bullets recovered from Berardelli's body, Bullet III — the fatal bullet — exhibited rifling marks consistent with those found on bullets fired from Sacco's.

Proctor would later [ when? This meant that Bullet III could have been fired from any of the , Vanzetti was being tried under Massachusetts' felony-murder rule, and the prosecution sought to implicate him in the Braintree robbery by the testimony of several witnesses: one testified that he was in the getaway car, and others who stated they saw Vanzetti in the vicinity of the Braintree factory around the time of the robbery.

The prosecution claimed Vanzetti's. No one testified to seeing anyone take the gun, but Berardelli had an empty holster and no gun on him when he was found.

District Attorney Katzmann pointed out that Vanzetti had lied at the time of his arrest, when making statements about the. He claimed that the revolver was his own, and that he carried it for self-protection, yet he incorrectly described it to police as a six-shot revolver instead of a five-shot.

The prosecution traced the history of Berardelli's. Berardelli's wife testified that she and her husband dropped off the gun for repair at the Iver Johnson Co.

The gun was claimed and the half-hour repair paid for, though the date and identity of the claimant were not recorded. After hearing testimony from the repair shop employee that "the repair shop had no record of Berardelli picking up the gun, the gun was not in the shop nor had it been sold", the defense put Vanzetti on the stand where he testified that "he had actually bought the gun several months earlier from fellow anarchist Luigi Falzini for five dollars" — in contradiction to what he had told police upon his arrest.

Burns and a Mr. Fitzgerald, who each testified that no new spring and hammer had ever been installed in the revolver found in Vanzetti's possession.

The District Attorney's final piece of material evidence was a flop-eared cap claimed to have been Sacco's. Sacco tried the cap on in court and, according to two newspaper sketch artists who ran cartoons the next day, it was too small, sitting high on his head.

But Katzmann insisted the cap fitted Sacco and, noting a hole in the back where Sacco had hung the cap on a nail each day, continued to refer to it as his, and in denying later appeals, Judge Thayer often cited the cap as material evidence.

During the Lowell Commission investigation, however, Braintree's Police Chief admitted that he had torn the cap open upon finding it at the crime scene a full day after the murders.

Doubting the cap was Sacco's, the chief told the commission it could not have lain in the street "for thirty hours with the State Police, the local police, and two or three thousand people there.

Controversy clouded the prosecution witnesses who identified Sacco as having been at the scene of the crime. One, a bookkeeper named Mary Splaine, precisely described Sacco as the man she saw firing from the getaway car.

From Felix Frankfurter's account from the Atlantic Monthly article:. Viewing the scene from a distance of from sixty to eighty feet, she saw a man previously unknown to her in a car traveling at the rate of from fifteen to eighteen miles per hour, and she saw him only for a distance of about thirty feet—that is to say, for from one and a half to three seconds.

Yet cross examination revealed that Splaine was unable to identify Sacco at the inquest but had recall of great details of Sacco's appearance over a year later.

While a few others singled out Sacco or Vanzetti as the men they had seen at the scene of the crime, far more witnesses, both prosecution and defense, could not identify them.

The defendants' radical politics may have played a role in the verdict. Judge Thayer, though a sworn enemy of anarchists, warned the defense against bringing anarchism into the trial.

Yet defense attorney Fred Moore felt he had to call both Sacco and Vanzetti as witnesses to let them explain why they were fully armed when arrested.

Both men testified that they had been rounding up radical literature when apprehended, and that they had feared another government deportation raid.

Yet both hurt their case with rambling discourses on radical politics that the prosecution mocked. The prosecution also brought out that both men had fled the draft by going to Mexico in On July 21, , the jury deliberated for three hours, broke for dinner, and then returned the guilty verdicts.

Supporters later insisted that Sacco and Vanzetti had been convicted for their anarchist views, yet every juror insisted that anarchism had played no part in their decision to convict the two men.

At that time, a first-degree murder conviction in Massachusetts was punishable by death. Sacco and Vanzetti were bound for the electric chair unless the defense could find new evidence.

The verdicts and the likelihood of death sentences immediately roused international opinion. Demonstrations were held in 60 Italian cities and a flood of mail was sent to the American embassy in Paris.

Demonstrations followed in a number of Latin American cities. You are a great people. You ought to be a just people. In , most of the nation had not yet heard of Sacco and Vanzetti.

Brief mention of the conviction appeared on page three of the New York Times. Defense attorney Moore radicalized and politicized the process by discussing Sacco and Vanzetti's anarchist beliefs, attempting to suggest that they were prosecuted primarily for their political beliefs and the trial was part of a government plan to stop the anarchist movement in the United States.

His efforts helped stir up support but was so costly that he was eventually dismissed from the defense team. The Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee was formed on May 9, , immediately following the arrests, by a group of fellow anarchists, headed by Vanzetti's year-old friend Aldino Felicani.

After the Committee hired William G. Thompson to manage the legal defense, he objected to its propaganda efforts. A Defense Committee publicist wrote an article about the first trial that was published in The New Republic.

In the winter of —, the Defense Committee sent stories to labor union publications every week. It produced pamphlets with titles like Fangs at Labor's Throat , sometimes printing thousands of copies.

It sent speakers to Italian communities in factory towns and mining camps. Jackson bridged the gap between the radicals and the social elite so well that Sacco thanked him a few weeks before his execution:.

We are one heart, but unfortunately we represent two different class. But, whenever the heart of one of the upper class join with the exploited workers for the struggle of the right in the human feeling is the feel of an spontaneous attraction and brotherly love to one another.

Multiple separate motions for a new trial were denied by Judge Thayer. The prosecution's firearms expert, Charles Van Amburgh, had re-examined the evidence in preparation for the motion.

By , bullet comparison technology had improved somewhat, and Van Amburgh submitted photos of the bullets fired from Sacco's. In response, the controversial [92] [93] self-proclaimed "firearms expert" for the defense, Albert H.

Hamilton, [92] conducted an in-court demonstration involving two brand new Colt. In front of Judge Thayer and the lawyers for both sides, Hamilton disassembled all three pistols and placed the major component parts — barrel, barrel bushing, recoil spring, frame, slide, and magazine — into three piles on the table before him.

Other motions focused on the jury foreman and a prosecution ballistics expert. In , the defense filed an affidavit from a friend of the jury foreman, who swore that prior to the trial, the jury foreman had allegedly said of Sacco and Vanzetti, "Damn them, they ought to hang them anyway!

Several months later, in February , Judge Thayer asked one of the firearms experts for the prosecution, Capt. Charles Van Amburgh, to reinspect Sacco's Colt and determine its condition.

With District Attorney Katzmann present, Van Amburgh took the gun from the clerk and started to take it apart. During three weeks of hearings, Albert Hamilton and Captain Van Amburgh squared off, challenging each other's authority.

Testimony suggested that Sacco's gun had been treated with little care, and frequently disassembled for inspection. New defense attorney William Thompson insisted that no one on his side could have switched the barrels "unless they wanted to run their necks into a noose.

Judge Thayer made no finding as to who had switched the. Meanwhile, Van Amburgh bolstered his own credentials by writing an article on the case for True Detective Mysteries.

The article charged that prior to the discovery of the gun barrel switch, Albert Hamilton had tried to walk out of the courtroom with Sacco's gun but was stopped by Judge Thayer.

Although several historians of the case, including Francis Russell, have reported this story as factual, nowhere in transcripts of the private hearing on the gun barrel switch was this incident ever mentioned.

The same year the True Detective article was published, a study of ballistics in the case concluded, "what might have been almost indubitable evidence was in fact rendered more than useless by the bungling of the experts.

The defense appealed Thayer's denial of their motions to the Supreme Judicial Court SJC , the highest level of the state's judicial system.

Additional ballistics tests and incriminating statements by the men's acquaintances have clouded the case. On August 23, —the 50th anniversary of the executions—Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis issued a proclamation that Sacco and Vanzetti had been unfairly tried and convicted and that "any disgrace should be forever removed from their names".

Sacco was a shoemaker and a night watchman, [3] born April 22, , in Torremaggiore , Province of Foggia , Apulia region in Italian : Puglia , Italy , who migrated to the United States at the age of seventeen.

Both left Italy for the US in , [6] although they did not meet until a strike. The men were believed to be followers of Luigi Galleani , an Italian anarchist who advocated revolutionary violence, including bombing and assassination.

Health is in you! At the time, Italian anarchists — in particular the Galleanist group — ranked at the top of the United States government's list of dangerous enemies.

Other Galleanists remained active for three years, 60 of whom waged an intermittent campaign of violence against US politicians, judges, and other federal and local officials, especially those who had supported deportation of alien radicals.

Among the dozen or more violent acts was the bombing of Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer 's home on June 2, In that incident, Carlo Valdinocci, a former editor of Cronaca Sovversiva , related to Sacco and Vanzetti, was killed when the bomb intended for Palmer exploded in the editor's hands.

Radical pamphlets entitled "Plain Words" signed "The Anarchist Fighters" were found at the scene of this and several other midnight bombings that night.

Several Galleanist associates were suspected or interrogated about their roles in the bombing incidents.

Roberto Elia, a fellow New York printer and admitted anarchist, [14] was later deposed in the inquiry, and testified that Salsedo had committed suicide for fear of betraying the others.

He portrayed himself as the 'strong' one who had resisted the police. On April 15, , two men were robbed and killed while transporting the company's payroll in two large steel boxes to the main factory.

One of them, Alessandro Berardelli [17] [18] [19] —a security guard—was shot four times [20] as he reached for his hip-holstered.

The other man, Frederick Parmenter [21] —a paymaster who was unarmed—was shot twice: [20] once in the chest and a second time, fatally, in the back as he attempted to flee.

As the car was being driven away, the robbers fired wildly at company workers nearby. Five of these. The Winchester cartridge case was of a relatively obsolete cartridge loading, which had been discontinued from production some years earlier.

Two days after the robbery, police located the robbers' Buick; several gauge shotgun shells were found on the ground nearby.

An earlier attempted robbery of another shoe factory occurred on December 24, , in Bridgewater , Massachusetts, by people identified as Italian who used a car that was seen escaping to Cochesett in West Bridgewater.

Police speculated that Italian anarchists perpetrated the robberies to finance their activities. Bridgewater police chief Michael E. Stewart suspected that known Italian anarchist Ferruccio Coacci was involved.

Coacci was slated for deportation on April 15, , the day of the Braintree holdup, but telephoned with the excuse that his wife was ill.

On April 16, officers discovered Coacci at home and determined that he had given a false alibi for not showing up for deportation.

They offered him another week, but Coacci declined and left for Italy on April 18, with his family along with his possessions. When Chief Stewart later arrived at the Coacci home, only Buda was living there, and when questioned, he said that Coacci owned a.

When Stewart discovered that Coacci had worked for both shoe factories that had been robbed, he returned with the Bridgewater police, Mario Buda was not home [28] , but on May 5, , he arrived at the garage with three other men, later identified as Sacco, Vanzetti, and Riccardo Orciani.

The four men knew each other well; Buda would later refer to Sacco and Vanzetti as "the best friends I had in America" [32].

Police were alerted, but the men left. Buda, who had vanished by then, did not resurface until back in Italy.

Sacco and Vanzetti boarded a streetcar, but were tracked down and soon arrested. When searched by police, both denied owning any guns, but were found to be holding loaded pistols.

Sacco was found to have an Italian passport, anarchist literature, a loaded. Orciani was arrested May 6, but gave the alibi that he had been at work on the day of both crimes.

Sacco had been at work on the day of the Bridgewater crimes but said that he had the day off on April 15—the day of the Braintree crimes— and was charged with those murders.

The self-employed Vanzetti had no such alibis and was charged for the attempted robbery and attempted murder in Bridgewater and the robbery and murder in the Braintree crimes.

Following Sacco and Vanzetti's indictment for murder for the Braintree robbery, Galleanists and anarchists in the United States and abroad began a campaign of violent retaliation.

He claimed that the revolver was his own, and that he carried it for self-protection, yet he incorrectly described it to police as a six-shot revolver instead of a five-shot.

The prosecution traced the history of Berardelli's. Berardelli's wife testified that she and her husband dropped off the gun for repair at the Iver Johnson Co.

The gun was claimed and the half-hour repair paid for, though the date and identity of the claimant were not recorded. After hearing testimony from the repair shop employee that "the repair shop had no record of Berardelli picking up the gun, the gun was not in the shop nor had it been sold", the defense put Vanzetti on the stand where he testified that "he had actually bought the gun several months earlier from fellow anarchist Luigi Falzini for five dollars" — in contradiction to what he had told police upon his arrest.

Burns and a Mr. Fitzgerald, who each testified that no new spring and hammer had ever been installed in the revolver found in Vanzetti's possession.

The District Attorney's final piece of material evidence was a flop-eared cap claimed to have been Sacco's. Sacco tried the cap on in court and, according to two newspaper sketch artists who ran cartoons the next day, it was too small, sitting high on his head.

But Katzmann insisted the cap fitted Sacco and, noting a hole in the back where Sacco had hung the cap on a nail each day, continued to refer to it as his, and in denying later appeals, Judge Thayer often cited the cap as material evidence.

During the Lowell Commission investigation, however, Braintree's Police Chief admitted that he had torn the cap open upon finding it at the crime scene a full day after the murders.

Doubting the cap was Sacco's, the chief told the commission it could not have lain in the street "for thirty hours with the State Police, the local police, and two or three thousand people there.

Controversy clouded the prosecution witnesses who identified Sacco as having been at the scene of the crime. One, a bookkeeper named Mary Splaine, precisely described Sacco as the man she saw firing from the getaway car.

From Felix Frankfurter's account from the Atlantic Monthly article:. Viewing the scene from a distance of from sixty to eighty feet, she saw a man previously unknown to her in a car traveling at the rate of from fifteen to eighteen miles per hour, and she saw him only for a distance of about thirty feet—that is to say, for from one and a half to three seconds.

Yet cross examination revealed that Splaine was unable to identify Sacco at the inquest but had recall of great details of Sacco's appearance over a year later.

While a few others singled out Sacco or Vanzetti as the men they had seen at the scene of the crime, far more witnesses, both prosecution and defense, could not identify them.

The defendants' radical politics may have played a role in the verdict. Judge Thayer, though a sworn enemy of anarchists, warned the defense against bringing anarchism into the trial.

Yet defense attorney Fred Moore felt he had to call both Sacco and Vanzetti as witnesses to let them explain why they were fully armed when arrested.

Both men testified that they had been rounding up radical literature when apprehended, and that they had feared another government deportation raid.

Yet both hurt their case with rambling discourses on radical politics that the prosecution mocked. The prosecution also brought out that both men had fled the draft by going to Mexico in On July 21, , the jury deliberated for three hours, broke for dinner, and then returned the guilty verdicts.

Supporters later insisted that Sacco and Vanzetti had been convicted for their anarchist views, yet every juror insisted that anarchism had played no part in their decision to convict the two men.

At that time, a first-degree murder conviction in Massachusetts was punishable by death. Sacco and Vanzetti were bound for the electric chair unless the defense could find new evidence.

The verdicts and the likelihood of death sentences immediately roused international opinion. Demonstrations were held in 60 Italian cities and a flood of mail was sent to the American embassy in Paris.

Demonstrations followed in a number of Latin American cities. You are a great people. You ought to be a just people.

In , most of the nation had not yet heard of Sacco and Vanzetti. Brief mention of the conviction appeared on page three of the New York Times. Defense attorney Moore radicalized and politicized the process by discussing Sacco and Vanzetti's anarchist beliefs, attempting to suggest that they were prosecuted primarily for their political beliefs and the trial was part of a government plan to stop the anarchist movement in the United States.

His efforts helped stir up support but was so costly that he was eventually dismissed from the defense team.

The Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee was formed on May 9, , immediately following the arrests, by a group of fellow anarchists, headed by Vanzetti's year-old friend Aldino Felicani.

After the Committee hired William G. Thompson to manage the legal defense, he objected to its propaganda efforts. A Defense Committee publicist wrote an article about the first trial that was published in The New Republic.

In the winter of —, the Defense Committee sent stories to labor union publications every week. It produced pamphlets with titles like Fangs at Labor's Throat , sometimes printing thousands of copies.

It sent speakers to Italian communities in factory towns and mining camps. Jackson bridged the gap between the radicals and the social elite so well that Sacco thanked him a few weeks before his execution:.

We are one heart, but unfortunately we represent two different class. But, whenever the heart of one of the upper class join with the exploited workers for the struggle of the right in the human feeling is the feel of an spontaneous attraction and brotherly love to one another.

Multiple separate motions for a new trial were denied by Judge Thayer. The prosecution's firearms expert, Charles Van Amburgh, had re-examined the evidence in preparation for the motion.

By , bullet comparison technology had improved somewhat, and Van Amburgh submitted photos of the bullets fired from Sacco's. In response, the controversial [92] [93] self-proclaimed "firearms expert" for the defense, Albert H.

Hamilton, [92] conducted an in-court demonstration involving two brand new Colt. In front of Judge Thayer and the lawyers for both sides, Hamilton disassembled all three pistols and placed the major component parts — barrel, barrel bushing, recoil spring, frame, slide, and magazine — into three piles on the table before him.

Other motions focused on the jury foreman and a prosecution ballistics expert. In , the defense filed an affidavit from a friend of the jury foreman, who swore that prior to the trial, the jury foreman had allegedly said of Sacco and Vanzetti, "Damn them, they ought to hang them anyway!

Several months later, in February , Judge Thayer asked one of the firearms experts for the prosecution, Capt.

Charles Van Amburgh, to reinspect Sacco's Colt and determine its condition. Director: Giuliano Montaldo. Added to Watchlist. Film visti nel Use the HTML below.
