Somebody Has To Shoot The Picture - DVD
Oscar nominee Roy Scheider stars in this suspense thriller written by photojournalist Doug Magee, inspired by his interviews with and photos of death-row prisoners. Convicted of killing police officer Jack McGrath in a Florida swamp seven years ago, small-time drug dealer Ray Eames (Howard) hires burned-out photographer Paul Marish (Scheider) to shoot his execution. Bonnie Bedelia is McGrath''s widow, Hannah, who reluctantly helps Marish try to uncover new evidence that may save Ray from the electric chair after the execution is postponed. Directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter Frank Pierson, this riveting made-for-cable drama also features Andre Braugher and Robert Carradine.
