"Emotions flare as a jealous Army lieutenant pleads innocent to murdering the rapist of his seductive, beautiful wife"--Container.

James Stewart, Ben Gazzara, Lee Remick, Eve Arden, George C. Scott, Kathryn Grant, Joseph N. Welch, Murray Hamilton, Orson Bean, Arthur O'Connell.
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.
