Just as good as any documentary about the case.
20 August 1999 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

A fine made for TV movie about a famous 50's murder case. George Peppard delivers a solid performance as Sam Sheppard the Doctor accused of brutally murdering his wife. The film covers several years and has a documentary style to it. Some of the characters actually speak directly to the viewing audience at times recounting various aspects of the Sheppard case and his life. There are actual documentary programs about the Sheppard murder case, which use actual news footage, and this movie is just as good as those.
