One of the best courtroom dramas. If Rashomon was about how, when it comes to the law, truth is unknowable, Anatomy is about how truth is irrelevant. The legal proceeding is itself a kind of show, like acting, or filmmaking. One small thought: as glad as I am that Preminger gave them a cameo, I'm still not sure what Duke Ellington and a hot jazz combo were doing in upstate Michigan. A masterpiece.
