  • Director Preminger thrives in tense legal showdowns and this is perhaps his best, mostly for Stewart's cagey performance as a deceptively wily small-town lawyer. The sensationalist trial revolves around an army lieutenant who shoots a bar owner for allegedly raping his wife, an ugly crime in which no one is wholly guilty or innocent. Based on Robert Travers' novel. Score (and onscreen appearance) by Duke Ellington. Academy Award Nominations: 7, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor--James Stewart, Best (Adapted) Screenplay.
  • Credits
    James Stewart, Jimmy Stewart, George C. Scott, George Campbell Scott, Murray Hamilton, Eve Arden, Lee Remick, Ben Gazzara, Orson Bean, Dallas Burrows, Arthur O'Connell
  • Critic Reviews
    "ANATOMY OF A MURDER from 1959, arguably Preminger's finest film, is also his most brazenly ambiguous."

    "...One of the most enduring courtroom dramas ever....Lee Remick enjoyed a career breakthrough..."
    USA Today

    "...[An] immaculate courtroom drama....The performances of James Stewart and George C. Scott as opposing attorneys remain a benchmark in the genre..."

    "It's a daring, cynical gem." -- Grade: A-
