The Verdict: 5/8 typical deus ex machina courtroom drama. Instead of the lead being sober and the wise teacher figure being drunk, it was the lead who was drunk and the wise teacher figure who was sober.Anatomy of a Murder: 5/8 typical deus ex machina rape/murder courtroom comedy. Apparently applauded for its realistic depiction of trial. The wiki is an interesting read. It's worth watching just for Eve Arden's snark and 15 seconds of great acting by George C Scott near the end.
