Elsie Townsend is a country towns-girl who wants to leave far away and get rich. She becomes the spoiled mistress of married local businessman Rick Chambers, but when his sickly wife Martha tells her to fear he wants to kill her to be free and yet keep her money, accepts to kill him together- which is a setup to scare Martha to dead. However Rick alone is locked away, and Elsie arranges an original alibi by slipping away from the bed of decent epilepsy-sufferer Elden Tolbert, whom she made betray his true girlfriend and arranged to pass out from alcohol so she could slip out for the murder during his seizure so he cannot deliver a fatal testimony, even if he wouldn't be willing to lie for her before moving with his family when going to Arizona University...Written by
this movie was filmed mostly in my hometown so i really thought it was neat although i do think they could have done better. I just thought it was so interesting to have a movie filmed here. I remember i was walking to the park to go for a walk and i saw most of the film crew. Im just so sad i didn't get to meet the main characters but i know where most of the places are in the film. It wasn't a movie that i would want to see over again and again but i wouldn't mind watching it and seeing how they changed some things here in town. I think they should film more films in Mississippi. This is just one attempt of filming in my home state. I hope to see more in the future. I thought Marley Shelton did an excellent job though. However, i have never been too fond of Dennis hopper. The boyfriend might do better as time improves but this was probably his one of few first movies or maybe even his first. Overall, i think it deserves a medium rating.
