Anatomy of a Murder (preminger, 1959) - TSPDT #776


A DA-turned lawyer and his booze happy counselor take on a murder case and try to convince the jury of an excusable deed.

Although it is based on a true story the fact that just by showing that Mary Pilant is the daughter of Quill doesn't seem to satisfy the swaying of the jury. There must have been some very "local" patriotic feelings as well. Not as inspiring as I hoped it would be. The intro sequence is stellar.
