Tuesday Nights at the Movies | ANATOMY OF A MURDER (1959 / 160 minutes)

7:30 pm
9:30 pm
Woodmere Art Museum

A masterful exercise in ambiguity: small town defense lawyer James Stewart is pitted against slick prosecutor George C. Scott when Ben Gazzara, a soldier with a history of domestic violence, murders a barkeep over the alleged rape of his wife, Lee Remick, and is put on trial in director Otto Preminger’s controversial courtroom thriller. Memorable score by Duke Ellington (who also cameos).
