Dramatization of the sensational Texas court case of the late '60s involving a noted Houston plastic surgeon, accused of doing away with his socially prominent first wife in order to marry somebody else. Based on the book by the doctor's second wife, the film resulted in an Emmy Award nomination for Andy Griffith's performance as the horsewoman socialite's oilman father, who suspected foul play in his daughter's death and set out to avenge it. An Emmy Award went to editor John A. Martinelli.
