Movie Reviews

Before there was court TV
Maureen Ogorman | USA | 01/18/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"A Televised drama of the trial of Jean Harris. The infamous headmistress of an exclusive girls school who shot and killed her lover Dr. Herman Tarnower. The victim was the author of a best-selling diet book, which brought the case even more notoriety.

This video confines itself exclusively with the trial. No background on the case is given and only slight introductions to the lawyers and the judge as the drama opens. Confusing to people who are not familiar with the case and repetitive to those who are.

There are no special features on the DVD


From the video:

"Based on a transcript of the trial of jean Harris. Some of the testimony presented here is not in the same order as given during the trial.

Because the proceedings took more than three months to complete, much of the testimony and lawyers' statements, arguments, and objections as well as rulings and charges of the judge in this case have necessity been abbreviated or omitted."
