And The Sea Will Tell...
2 Disc Set
Partially filmed in Hawaii and Tahiti, And the Sea Will Tell was a two-part TV movie based on a real murder case. A wealthy couple (James Brolin and Deidre Hall) are killed on their yacht off the coast of a secluded South American island called Palmyra.
The suspects are a hippyish pair (Hart Bochner and Rachel Ward) whom the rich folks had befriended. It's fairly clear that the hippies were involved in the crime: The question is, did the man do it while the girl looked on helplessly, or was she a willing accomplice?
Richard Crenna plays real-life defense attorney Vincent Bugliosi, upon whose book "And the Sea Will Tell" was based. The first part of this teledrama premiered on February 24, 1991.
Other sites are selling copies of this film as a single disc. But that means they are squeezing a three hour film on a disc meant to handle 2 hours. The net effect is like watching an extended play VHS.
What is being offered here is a two disc set, after all the film was originally a 2 part mini-series. As I say above, this is laserdisc quality, not something videotaped from the television nearly 20 years ago.
Along with the film you do get menu and chapter screens. These screens were created with actual photos from Palmyra Island.
