What is the movie Anatomy of a Murder about?
In this suspenseful courtroom drama directed by Otto Preminger James Stewart plays the role of a small town lawyer becoming a defense attorney on a high profile murder case. Paul Biegler (Stewart), a former district attorney with a small practice in a small town, gets contacted by Laura Manion. Laura’s husband Manny, a US Army lieutenant, has been arrested for the murder of a man who has supposedly raped Laura. Manny confesses to the murder, but claims not to remember any of the events, which might allow him a release on the account of temporary insanity. Biegler is going up against not only the local district attorney, but also a big shot big city prosecutor who takes interest in this case. Biegler is using all of his legal smarts to try and convince the jury that his client acted under an “irresistible impulse”. He will also involve a young woman who, unbeknownst to the prosecution, is the daughter of the murdered. She gives a false testimony which confirms defense’s claims of Laura being raped, and lieutenant Manion is found not guilty by reason of insanity. Biegler goes to visit the Manions in their trailer park, but finds out that they have gone away, and finds a note that strongly suggests that the Manions were deceiving him and the rest of the public about what truly happened.

I loved the characters of this film; every one of them was interesting, except for one: the prosecuting attorney. This guy was portrayed as being virtually incapable of doing anything right. I didn't buy that; if he were so inept, why would he ever have been hired in the first place? Good grief, your average debate team member from a high school could handle himself better than _that_. Otherwise, though, the cast was fabulous; I wanted to know them all better. The only other character who gave me any cause to grumble was George C. Scott's, who was generally wonderfully snaky, but when he became practically terrified of what to do with a little dog when it jumped up on his lap, I had to say, now come on guys... just because he's the emotional/dramatic "villain" character here, that doesn't make him inhuman. It's hard to believe that bit was based on reality; it felt extremely Hollywood, and clashed badly with the rest of the film, which really drew me in.

Amazing dialog and performances. There's a reason you've seen this ripped off 100000000 times.
The legal procedural drama starts here.
Plus, a Duke Ellington score!
