5 September 2006 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen the movie but was a medical resident who helped take care of one of the real killer's victims back in the 1980's. I don't know exactly how old Blanche Taylor Moore was at the time but she looked to be at least solidly in her 50's. So Elizabeth Montgomery was not at all too old for the part. Ms. Moore was well-known to all of the physicians and nurses. She often showed up to spend time with her husband in his hospital room, feeding him, etc. Of course, only later did everyone realize she was feeding him arsenic. Some time after his death she remarried. Her new husband then presented in the emergency room with severe leg pain and weakness and was found to be suffering from arsenic poisoning. That began the unraveling of everything else, as Ms. Moore's previous husbands and father were excavated for heavy metal testing.
