A virtuoso James Stewart ("Vertigo") plays a small-town Michigan lawyer who takes on a difficult case: that of a young Army lieutenant (Ben Gazzara, "The Killing of a Chinese Bookie") accused of murdering the local tavern owner who he believes raped his wife (Lee Remick, "Days of Wine and Roses"). This gripping, envelope-pushing courtroom potboiler, the most popular film from Hollywood provocateur Otto Preminger ("Laura"), was groundbreaking for the frankness of its discussion of sex - more than anything else, it is a striking depiction of the power of words. With its outstanding supporting cast - including a young George C. Scott ("Patton") as a fiery prosecuting attorney and legendary real-life attorney Joseph N. Welch as the judge - and influential jazz score by Duke Ellington, "Anatomy Of A Murder" is a Hollywood landmark; it was nominated for seven Oscars(R), including best picture.
