Trivia

This film is based on the true story of Little Rock murderous, Mary Leah Orsini. She was charged and convicted of conspiracy to commit murder when she hired two men, one of whom was, Eugene "Yankee" Hall, to deliver bouquet of flowers to the home of her attorney (William MacArthur). The evidence showed that Mrs. MacArthur initially fled the door and hid in an upstairs bedroom where she was found brutally murdered. The trial gained nationwide attention and due to the unfinished construction of a new courthouse, it was held in the Former Arkansas Federal Courthouse. At the time of the trial this building was being used as The University of Arkansas School of Law for moot court and various classes. Thus, allowing the Law Students to observe "the murder trial of the century" from the soundproof gallery. One such student would later pursue a career in Hollywood as a motion picture Producer. As a matter of fate, Jeffrey C. Hogue, who had just finished a film for New World Pictures had been asked to come in a read the script for "SEDUCTION IN TRAVIS COUNTY". At the initial meeting Mr. Hogue read some 15 pages of the script and remarked, "This is the Mary Leah Orsini case!" Security and Executives at New World fearing a corporate leak, went into "lockdown" mode. Mr. Hogue was questioned as to how he could possibly know the basis of the Script after reading only a few page? He stated to the utter amazement of the Corporate Executives in a typically calm Southern accent that he was in fact a Lawyer who happened to have attended Law School in Little Rock and more strange he had made a point of attending the Trial of which the film was based on. Naturally New World hired Hogue and his team on the spot to produce this MOVIE OF THE WEEK. It was truly life imitating Art or vice-versa that golf all the Producers in Holiwood Hogue would have been asked to produce a film which he had hoped to produce years earlier as he watched the trial while a student. As to Mrs. Orsini, she passed away in prison in early 2013 OR 2014. William MacArthur was elected as a judge. Mr. Hogue continued producing low budget pictures and acquiring the rights to some 400 features and shorts which have achieved notoriety in the past 30 years. See more »

No good
6 August 2007 | by (Blackpool England) – See all my reviews

I just picked up a video of this one for 75p-about all its worth. I usually like the True Story types but this is only true if you realise that people murder people. More likely its a rip off of Fatal Attraction. A woman apparently discovers her husband has been murdered-there was no motive for her to have done it yet she's arrested.A lawyer gets her off on some sort of technicality-which could have been due to the fact that there was no fingerprints,witnesses or motive but the police need to do this stuff. This is when you think it can't have been a True Story because it starts to get into the realms of fiction with plots and subplots based on the storyline of a woman lusting after her lawyer who tells her he's happily married.We find out later he DID once have an affair which nearly destroyed him. How utterly original! It just seems as if the plot is being added to when the woman employs a hit man to bump the lawyers wife off after arranging to have his nightclub torched.It gets too silly I was glad when it finished the film overstayed its welcome by about an hour
