This courtroom drama pits a small-town lawyer against a big-city one in the defense of a jealous army lieutenant for the murder of his wife's rapist. Genre: Mystery Rating: UN Release Date: 11-JUL-2000 Media Type: DVD
Otto Preminger turned this 1959 courtroom drama, based on the popular novel, into terrific adult drama. James Stewart stars as a small-town lawyer who defends an army officer Ben Gazzara accused of murdering a bartender who assaulted his wife Lee Remick. The taut script, large performance by Stewart, and then-daring elements of the story words like "panties" are spoken in the context of discussing a sex crime give the action a certain immediacy--which you don't find very often in today's movies about jurisprudence. Nice work by Remick and Gazzara, as well as George C. Scott, Arthur O'Connell, and real-life judge Joseph N. Welch, who plays the judge in this film. A very good experience all around. --Tom Keogh
