Gary Cole plays Jack Holtz. Cole played Jeffrey MacDonald in the 1984 TV movie 'Fatal Vision,' based on the book of the same name by Joe McGinniss. MacDonald was convicted of murdering his wife and two daughters in 1979. During the trial of Jay Smith, the prosecution mentions finding the book 'Fatal Vision' among Smith's possessions in his prison cell. According to prosecutors, this is significant because Smith, like MacDonald, is suspected of killing a mother and her two children. See more »
My step-father was Ken Reinert, and Karen and Michael were my step-brother and step-sister. My mother married Ken in the early/mid 70's and we became a family, with Karen & Michael spending the weekends and holidays with us. This movie was intense, very emotional, yet ran smoothly, and I still remember sitting in the TV room with Ken, Lynn, my little brother, Wayne, and myself week after week, watching the story of our lives played for all the world to see. It was very hard on my now X-step-father, Ken, and it took many years, a divorce,growing close with my brother,and a new loving girlfriend for him to find true happiness. I know from monthly communicating and seeing him for many years (since his divorce from my mother), that he died happy and in peace with his life finally after all of these years. My brother and I still speak of him often and the one question we don't know that will ever be answered is: "What did Dad marinate his porkloins in that made them taste so good (he was a chef)???"
It was a very impressively directed movie. It was kept clean, as opposed to the graphics that Joseph Wambaugh wrote about in his book. Like my mother stated above in her comment, feel free to contact myself if you have any questions. I actually didn't know there were websites concerning the murders. Thanks for reading this & have a great day! Thanks for caring about our family.
