Arguably the finest courtroom drama ever made. 'Anatomy of a Murder' remains an at times shocking indictment of Eisenhower-era America and an all-round terrific thriller. Based on the best-selling novel by John D Voelker and adapted by veteran screenwriter Wendell Mayes, the case takes place a sleepy town where the rape of a beautiful young woman and her decorated war hero husband's subsequent killing of her attacker causes a state-wide stir. Great performances, great script, a really great movie.
