The Man Who Shot John Lennon


Episode Info

"Then this morning I went to the bookstore and bought The Catcher in the Rye. I'm sure the large part of me is Holden Caulfield, who is the main person in the book. The small part of me must be the Devil." Brought to video by PBS, this look into the mind of convicted killer Mark David Chapman shows not a random act of violence, but a cold, calculated murder. Detailed by Frontline producer Frank Sim, this account tells the tragic tale of the 1980 shooting of John Lennon, one of the geniuses behind the legendary rock group the Beatles.
