The People v. Leo Frank is a very compelling docudrama of a famous case
6 July 2013 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this PBS docudrama on DVR that I recoded four years ago. I had previously learned of the Mary Phagan/Leo Frank case when NBC aired a two-part TV movie starring Jack Lemmon called "The Murder of Mary Phagan" back in the late '80s. That one was pretty compelling but this one is even more so since it's based on actual testimony of the participants for the case of which the most interesting was that of the prosecutor of Frank as he eventually changed his mind on the guilt of him in the killing of the 13-year-old. I also was touched when it depicted Leo's love for his wife during his incarceration whenever his voice recited his letters to her. Highly recommend to anyone seeking this on DVD.
