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 »

less than interesting film
22 January 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This 1991 film was really predictable and no surprises for a mystery. Writer Christopher Canaan could have done more with the subject matter based supposedly on a true story. Aren't all LMN TV movies true stories? Director George Kaczender tried but had bad actors to work with and I feel he finally gave up.

For certainly Peter Coyote, an actor I never have liked, gave a one dimensional performance. Watch the scene where he discovers his wife's murder. Blank face, no expression, no regret, just sits in the dining room staring into space. This is all right if you're playing shock, but to continue the same thing through the entire movie got boring as hell. And through all of this where are the children? Who's looking after them? For Coyote is too busy saving his own neck. Bad, bad, bad! Now Lesley Ann Warren has come a ways since Cinderella, hasn't she? She makes these googly eyes and giggles, reminiscent of VICTOR VICTORIA and A NIGHT IN HEAVEN. It seems to be the only thing she can do. She's quite a lovely lady and should try less intensive roles and just look pretty, which she is. Jean Smart as the wife was the only actor who had any balls at all. As the wife, she made a presence to reckon with. And Freda Williams as the dumb secretary taken in by the obvious allure of Warren did okay.

Forget this one. No hope for it.
