Jimmy Stewart triumphs in his role as the humble, country lawyer Paul Biegler. He was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar, but unfortunately didn't win. I think every actor would love to get a role like this in their career. Jimmy was older, but he could still show great range from tying flies in the courtroom to playing the piano with Duke Ellington to going head to head with the prosecutors of the case. The subject matter, racy for the time, gives a great story to this classic film. The other actors of the film give classic performances including Ben Gazarra (the army lieutenant), Lee Remick (Lt. Manion's wife), George C. Scott (the attorney from Lansing), Arthur O'Connell (Stewart's drunken friend), and Eve Arden (Stewart's secretary). A great film with great music, a great cast, and a legendary director, Otto Preminger!

I absolutely love James Stewart and this film is definitely in the top 3 of any Stewart performance through his sixty year career. He is absolutely amazing, with a quick dry humor and incredible presence in the courtroom scenes. One of the best and most controversial courtroom dramas of all time has an all-star cast and great director, Otto Preminger. If only Ben Hur would have been made a year later, Stewart probably would have won the Best Actor Academy Award. An absolutely brilliant film in every aspect, controversy surrounded it after it's release because of its' racy themes and subject matter including rape, murder, and ladies underwear. The film was banned in Chicago, Jimmy's hometown Indiana, Pa (a campaign led by his own father) and in South Africa because of one short scene in which Jimmy Stewart plays the piano with Duke Ellington (who lends his talent with a beautiful score to the film). Great addition to anyone's film collection!

Jimmy Stewart is captivating as a smart-aleck trial attorney hired to defend a Marine convicted of a murder. Enthralling and delightful perfomances from an ensemble of supporting actors, including George C. Scott and Eve Arden, cement this as an American classic.
