    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. 10 years 2 months ago

    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. 6 years 11 months ago
