While on his death bed Jules tells Pauline that her son Kippie was the killer of Hector Paradiso and that there is a SEALED letter in their safe, written by Hector right before his death, that names Kippie as the man who shot him. After Jules dies, Pauline goes to the safe to retrieve the letter. When she takes it out of the safe and opens it, it is obviously NOT sealed. See more »

love sex murder intrigue..and Rebecca DeMornay!
27 April 2001 | by (PA USA) – See all my reviews

A married older man has a fling with a younger woman leading to sex murder, suicide, gossip, cover ups and a lot of other fun stuff in this tv miniseries soap opera. Loosely based on the Bloomingdale scandal and a novel by Dominick Dunne, this movie is a typical trashy made for television fare that has a great cast and is very watchable..especially with DeMornay. a guilty pleasure. 7 of 10
