Thank God it's on DVD,
This review is from: The Verdict (DVD)
This is by far one of the best (if not the best) courtroom drama ever made. It is also in my opinion Paul Newman's best preformance. He plays an Alcoholic Ambulance chasing lawyer who gets the case to save his career. It however is not as formulaic as it my sound. James Mason also comes in with one of his last fine appearances on film. I have been checking for the release on this movie since I got my DVD player. Have never seen it in Widescreen and can not wait.
Lumet fans should also take notice, the director of A Dog Day Afternoon, Running on Empty and 12 Angry Men created one of his best in this movie.
The Verdict also includes the best slap in movie history, (you'll have to watch it to see what I mean.)
