Someone has NOT been doing his homework
26 February 2004 | by ccamp3175See all my reviews

The series, "Lady Killers", from 1980, (not to be confused with either the Alec Guiness or the Tom Hanks movie) is NOT about women victims, but about women MURDERESSES. Each episode is the story of a woman who commits a crime, is caught, tried and, usually, hanged. The series begins with lady murdurers from the 19th century, and poor Ruth Ellis figures in the ultimate installment. The name "Lady Killers" is a sort of double play on the title: the ladies were all killers, and the state finally kills THEM. I've been looking for a VHS or CD of it, but to no avail, and stumbled on this "review". I can only infer from its gross inaccuracy that is was written by someone who has not taken the trouble to peek at the series. Watch what you write, "reviewers",..., and watch what you BELIEVE, gentle readers.
