There Will Be Blood DVD Released Today

Paul Thomas Anderson's spellbinding epic There Will Be Blood hits shelves today in single- and double-disc formats.

While many people know the film, starring Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis, is loosely based on the life of Southern California oilman Edward Doheny, Sr., most are not familiar with the real-life murders that took place in Doheny's mansion, where the climatic bowling alley scene was shot.

I first wrote about the murders of Edward "Ned" Doheny Jr. and his secretary, Hugh Plunkett, in my first book, Hollywood Death Scenes. I later revisited the story here for my Investigation Discovery Hollywood on Trial blog.

You can view the theatrical trailer below and order the DVD if you'd like.
