Editorial Reviews

No one knows the dark side of the rich and famous better than Dominick Dunne. He's the consummate insider, renowned for getting the stories no one else can. Now this best-selling author and celebrated columnist for Vanity Fair magazine brings his singular perspective to television with a selection of notorious cases. From the Hamptons to Palm Beach, Texas to California - Dunne infiltrates the enclaves of the powerful, and chronicles shocking stories where arrogance leads the rich to believe they are above the law, and celebrity collides with justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Court TV Show! July 16, 2005
By Katie
I watch "Dominick Dunne's Power, Privilege, and Justice" every week on the Court Channel, and I must say that it is NEVER boring.

This particular show is about crimes that were comitted by the VERY rich (and sometimes famous), how they were solved, and whether or not true justice was done. Can money buy justice these days? Well, according to this show, the rich can no longer count on that!

Many of these shows deal with murder, and money is generally at the root of it all (it's amazing that some people never have enough money, and what they'll do to get more is down right sickening sometimes!).

Dominick Dunne does a great job of hosting this show. In fact, he was/is one of the rich himself, so he was known to hobnob with many of the people he now commentates about (I wonder if he is still invited to all those extravegant parties?).

Overall, if you're a crime buff, & enjoy watching the criminal justice process (from realizing there's the crime, to solving "who dunnit", to the court room trial & judgement), then this would be a great DVD for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Guilty Pleasure October 8, 2010
Dominick Dunne's show "Power, Privilege, Justice" focused on the legal troubles of rich people. The show was great, but you always had the feeling that you shouldn't be so interested in other people's problems. This two-DVD set captures eight of the best episodes; if anything, the DVD is better than watching on TV because you don't have to put up with the commercials.

In no particular order, the eight episodes are:
1) Alex Kelly was a teenager from a Darien, Connecticut, family who raped two of his high school classmates. Rather than face justice he spent eight years on the run - with his parent's help.
2) T. Cullen Davis was a Texas oil tycoon. He was accused of murdering his stepdaughter and his wife's boyfriend. Later, he was accused of hiring a hit man to kill a judge and his wife.
3) Dana Ewell hired a friend to kill his father, mother, and sister - all so that he could inherit the family's $8 million fortune and not have to share with his sister.
4) Steven Beard was a lonely, elderly man who met - then married - an exciting woman named Celeste. Celeste's lesbian lover murdered Beard so that they could inherit his estate.
5) Ruth Anne Aron was a rising Maryland politician when bad publicity stained her public image. She tried to get even by hiring a hit man to eliminate her rivals.
6) Jim Sullivan was living the good life in Palm Beach when his marriage turned sour. Desperate to avoid paying a settlement, he hired a hit man who killed Sullivan's wife. Bringing Sullivan to justice would take about 15 years and would involve an international manhunt.
7) Joe Pikul was a Wall Street "Master of the Universe" who also enjoyed cross-dressing. He also murdered his wife. This story would be completely unbelievable if it weren't true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't get enough of it..... November 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
Very interesting cases about killing among the rich. I like the fact that Dominick Dunne's series used lots of the original films and photos, instead of lots of reenact with actors as many other similar shows do. The original films, videos, evidence, and photos ARE ALWAYS THE BEST. Love it. I will definitely buy the complete set of this series if there are any.
