Trivia

According to crime author Rachel Pergament, this is the movie that brothers Eric and Lyle Menendez were watching on TV when they conceived the idea of murdering their father, producer and entrepreneur Jose Menendez, and their mother, Kitty Menendez. As with their crime, central figure Joe Hunt was convicted of killing the father of one of his business associates, and, like the Menendez brothers, he was ultimately sentenced to life without parole.

Goofs

In the opening scene, the prosecutor asks Dean Karny to read Joe Hunt's "To Do at Levin's" list out loud. But the list, which is seen on camera, is a little different than the way Karny recites it. See more »

i enjoyed the original mini-series as it was televised over two nights. i bought a VHS copy a few years ago, and was distressed finding a shorter and edited version that left out essential scenes that made this thriller run. the line from Judd Nelson's electrifying role of Joe Hunt..."then I declare war on you..." and Dean Karney's somber statement, "you can't beat a good conspiracy"...were priceless. the whole spin of affluent young men as corporate raiders and investors of commodities may have been noble aspirations, but only to get caught in the web of Joe Hunt's paradox philosophy. The book, of course has more depth and detail, closer to the reality of this true crime.
