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 »
The night Part 1 aired on tv, I was inexorably drawn in. When Part 2 aired, I recorded it because I had to work that night. It was the same night a horrible storm hit--when I came home to my VCR, I'd discovered that the entire episode was UNWATCHABLE! This forced me to buy the novel to find out what happened. The novel is much more graphic and involved, but it turned me on to Joseph Wambaugh because it was the only true-life-horror-mystery-tragedy that I actually laughed out loud while reading! The book is very morbidly funny! Years later when I acquired the video, my girlfriend lamented that it was too long--until we started watching it...when Gary Cole utters the final lines of the cliffhanger--"What kids?" then we saw "To Be Continued..." flash across the screen, I jokingly said: "Well, it's late and I need to be leaving, I'll show you Part 2 some other time." She grabbed me and told me that I WASN'T GOING TO LEAVE until we watched the second video! Yes, it's that good! Watch it if you like true crime--but read the book too!
