Preminger’s cinematic scalpel does more than lay open the guts of the criminal justice system. It peels back layers of legal flesh and sinew and reveals the minds of the lawyers in the courtroom and their hearts and souls – their humanity – in memorable scenes outside it.

Such a strange film, especially for its time. Despite being fictional, it’s closer in spirit to Depardon’s Moments of Trial than to most courtroom dramas, its focus on Jimmy Stewart’s defense attorney a hugely effective red herring… Masterfully done, but it does leave a massive hole where any human interest ought to be, which retroactively makes touches like the redemption of Arthur O’Connell’s alcoholic mentor seem not just irrelevant but intrusive.

This 1959 release is a prime contender for Otto Preminger’s greatest film — a superb courtroom drama packed with humor and character that shows every actor at his or her best… As an entertaining look at legal process, this is spellbinding, infused by an ambiguity about human personality and motivation that is Preminger’s trademark, and the location shooting is superb.
