First Time View. How I have missed this film all these years is beyond me. I am so glad I watched it. Anatomy of a murder is an excellent film with an extremely tight and well written script. Add to that a sensational cast, starting of course with the leads, Jimmy Stewart, George C. Scott, Lee Remick, and Ben Gazarra, but also the rest of the cast, filled as it is with numerous accomplished and veterans of stage and screen.
I still have a thing for Eve Arden's "no nonsense" look. R.I.P.
