| Interesting trivia about this movie
This movie was filmed in and around Valdosta (Lowndes Co.) and Quitman (Brooks Co.), Georgia. The party scene inside the beautiful mansion was filmed at The Crescent in Valdosta, Georgia. The scenes of the houses at the lake were filmed at Ocean Pond and other lakes in southern Lowndes Co. The courthouse scenes (interior and exterior) were filmed at the Brooks County Courthouse. I am from Valdosta and this filming took place when I was in high school and this was a HUGE deal in Valdosta! Quite a few of the extras in the film are people I know! Bette Davis was VERY frail during the time they were shooting and, from what I heard, was an EXTREMELY crotchety and cranky old lady! All in all, it's a decent movie. The scenery is good but the acting leaves A LOT to be desired! The storyline leans HEAVILY toward "To Kill a Mockingbird", but it's entertaining. If I remember correctly, this was filmed for and by HBO.
