Summary
Based on the true story of Gary Gilmore and the tragic chain of events which led him to commit two cruel and senseless murders. These crimes would eventually cause him to become the first person in over ten years to be executed in the electric chair. This "director's cut" combines elements from the 97-minute European theatrical release with the original 157-minute U.S. TV miniseries
