the ancient mariner
One of the easiest ways to draw my attention to a movie is to describe it as “Courtroom Drama” ———–I love ’em
My favorite is a dead heat between ———–
1A) Anatomy of a Murder—-where the word panties startled the movie goers world.
Jimmy Stewart is great, but when we left the theater (2 couples) we were talking about the
District Attorney—–a new guy we had never seen before—-George C Scott–terrific.
1B) Witness for the Prosecution —— Charles Laughton, with wig, robe, and brandy flask, defending Tyrone Power. Marlene Dietrich is wonderful.
2 or 3 ?) Caine Mutiny—–Bogart/strawberries/Ferrer/ good stuff
4) 12 Angry Men solve a murder
There was a TV show “so and so (?) for the Prosecution” a BBC show that I watched
a lot and loved but I could not stand Perry Mason—-too phony.
Lots of others I can’t remember, but i loved them all.
