If lawyers were all as charismatic as James Stewart, movies would become pointless, people would just have to go to the court. Fascinating film, by the way.
Stellar performances by James Stewart(his persuasion in court though kinda was reminiscent of his own Mr.Smith Goes To Washington.) and George C.Scott. Arguments posed in the court-room was very tactfully presented.Clearly stands out as one of the best court-room dramas ever.
James Stewart VS George C. Scott, What's not to love?
