Anatomy of a Murder

This movie was excellent. It started off a bit slow and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to understand a word Jimmy Stewart said without the help of subtitles, but once the case was introduced it really took off. Some of the jokey corny one-liners during the courtroom scenes made me cringe; however, those scenes were also the most gripping. Although I knew Jimmy couldn't lose, I was breathless with worry at how the prosecution would attack. George C. Scott played his role as Stewart's foil to perfection. That all said, I have to note that the ending was kind of abrupt and sucked. Rate *****
