Summary A small-town Michigan lawyer takes on a difficult case: that of a young Army lieutenant accused of murdering the local tavern owner who he believes raped his wife. A gripping, envelope-pushing courtroom potboiler, Anatomy of a Murder was groundbreaking for the frankness of its discussion of sex. More than anything else, it is a striking depiction of the power of words. With its outstanding supporting cast and influential jazz score by Duke Ellington, it's a Hollywood landmark.
Note Special features: new interview with Foster Hirsch; critic Gary Giddins explores Duke Ellington's score in a new interview; a look at the relationship between graphic designer Saul Bass and Preminger with Pat Kirkham; newsreel footage from the set; excerpts from 1967 episode of Firing line featuring Preminger in discussion with William F. Buckley Jr.; excerpts from the work in progress Anatomy of "Anatomy"; behind-the-scenes photographs by Life magazine's Gjon Mili; trailer; a booklet featuring an essay by critic Nick Pinkerton and a 1959 Life magazine article on real-life lawyer Joseph N. Welch.
