Creating Dollhouse Miniatures, I came across a preview of a documentary film inspired by the Nutshell Studies. The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death were a series of intricately designed dollhouse-style dioramas created by Frances Glessner Lee. See the preview HERE. Indie filmmakers Susan Marks and John Kurtis Dehn, just completed making the film, Of Dolls & Murder, an intimate look at dollhouse crime scenes. In September 2010, they released the film's trailer, you can see it HERE. The video below is from PBS, a conversation with director Susan Marks. I have searched and searched but have been unable to find a release date of the film but as soon as I do, I will post it.
