Great show from a master storyteller
RIP Dominick Dunne. We lost a great journalist and Hollywood bon vivant when Dunne passed....a sad day, indeed.
I loved this show! Dunne's narration of the dramas of the rich and famous, ripped from the headlines, done in documentary style, was riveting, realistic and endlessly fascinating. I would like to see other seasons here on I Tunes...I think that there were several.
