It takes place back in 1889 and is about an older woman, Cordelia Botkin, who leaves her husband for a younger man. The catch is he is also married and ends up leaving Cordelia to be with his wife.
Cordelia becomes very jealous and will do anything to get her boyfriend back. Even murder.
Thus Cordelia ends up on trial for killing her lovers wife.
Cordelia sends her lover's wife a box of chocolate and does not sign the card with her full name. Only C.
Not knowing who the box of candy is from and being a lover of chocolates the wife eats several pieces, not knowing they were laced with arsenic. She later dies.
Cordelia's handwriting is quickly recognised by her lover and he turns her in.
This is not going to be a big film or win any Academy awards but it still sounds like a fun movie to do.
I wouldn't have any speaking parts. I would just be in Victorian costume and either sitting in the court room or be one of the people out on the streets in town.
I still have not decided if I want to do this or not. I think it would be fun but it would be very hot.
As you know, back in the Victorian days, the woman all wore long sleeves, long dresses or skirts and hat. Being outside would be a killer dressed up and standing in the heat all day.
The trial scene is filmed in an old court room down in San Pedro and I don't know if they ever updated the court house with air or not.
I've been an extra in two other movies. One was Star Ship Trooper, I think it may have won an award for Best Special Effects that year.
The other was Running with Scissors, which actually got nominated for an Academy Award for best Actress.
Have you ever been in a movie or on TV? There is a lot of waiting around for them to film your scene and it can be very exciting at times but very dull at other times. Yet it's still fun to see the whole process going on.
So would you do this movie? I'll let you know what I decide.
