REVIEWS:









"Anatomy of a Murder...is the best courtroom melodrama
this old judge has ever seen. .... ['Anatomy'] is well nigh flawless
as a picture of an American court at work, of small-town
American characters and of the average sordidness of crime. ....
Most brilliantly revealed is the character of the lawyer
for the defense, a part that is played by James Stewart
in one of the finest performances of his career. Slowly and
subtly, he presents us a warm, clever, adroit and complex man--
and, most particularly, a portrait of a trial lawyer in action
that will be difficult for anyone to surpass."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; July 3, 1959
