A Time to Kill

Trivia: In the scene when Jake is sitting on the frame of his burnt house talking to Harry Rex, in one shot, the crotch of his pants has a large hole. He obviously has no underwear on, and you can see his "anatomy". Viewed on VHS

Suggested correction: That hole is on the top of his inside leg.

Trivia: The first time Kiefer and Donald Sutherland have starred together since the former's film debut in "Max Dugan Returns."

Trivia: In one of the courtroom scenes, the judge refers to Sandra Bullock as "Lois Lane." Around the same time this film was being made, Bullock was heavily considered to play the role of Lois Lane in Tim Burton's Superman Lives, but the movie was canceled just weeks before shooting.

Factual error: Toward the end of the film, Matthew McConnaughey is in his office late at night and hears someone outside (it turns out to be his wife). However, McConnaughey draws a revolver from his desk drawer and we can hear (but not see) him pulling the hammer back to cock the gun. Problem is: When pulling back the hammer on a revolver, the cylinder turns to rotate the next bullet into position. The cylinder did not turn. The sound we heard was obviously added by the sound editors after the scene was shot.

Question: When Carl Lee Hailey visited Jake to tell him that he was thinking about killing those 2 men, wouldn't he have been required to report that to law enforcement? It's not considered attorney/client privilege when you tell your lawyer that you are planning to kill someone. And then he went home and told his wife about it, so wouldn't that also make her an accessory?
