    1) James Stewart, Lee Remick & Ben Gazzara headline one of the greatest ensemble casts in film history. 2) The daring, ballsy, intricate dialogue/screenplay that is still pretty inventive. 3) One of the accurate portrayals of the legal system ever created, just like "12 Angry Men".

    1- Jimmy Stewart's performance is just wonderful to watch. 2- Otto Preminger at his best, wait In Harm's Way was just a tad better. 3- The soundtrack by Duke Ellington, you just have to open your ears and listen. It's DUKE! and 4- yes I'm cheating, George C. Scott almost out does Stewart's performance and that is a very hard thing to do.

    1. Filmed entirely on location, where the actual events took place! 2. The courtroom drama by which all others are measured. 3. Ok, and Ellington :-) And if you want a fourth reason to own this new release, excerpts from my new documentary, "Anatomy of 'Anatomy'" (a work in progress) are included!

    A cast of convincing characters and a score that will leave you wanting more Duke Ellington. A great introduction to Jimmy Stewart, Lee Remick and Ben Gazarra (if you haven't seen them on screen. This is the kind of film where dialogue and the details of objects transcend a great deal of what was occuring in Hollywood at the time. A great place to start if you haven't seen any of Otto Preminger's films.
