Where can I find this movie?
25 March 2012 | by (Columbus, OH) – See all my reviews

I actually only got to see part of this movie, as it was taped and accidentally erased before I finished the entire movie. I'm now reading Thompson's "Blood and Money," which is highly engrossing and I can't stop reading it--I suspect I'll finish it this weekend. The book goes into great detail about the characters' histories, not just presenting facts, as so many "true crime" books do. It reads like a novel, and the part of the movie I saw was well matched and well acted to what I've read in the book, understanding that a movie can't possibly include all the details of a well researched book.

Does anyone know if this movie is in DVD or at least VHS format and available to rent or buy? The reviews I've read here at this site as well as the cast, especially Farrah Fawcett, Sam Elliott and Andy Griffith prompt me to want to see it!
