It took smelling salts to bring me around. It was touch and go there for a minute.

Re: There's no such thing as a good courtroom drama movie.

Exactly! This was the very first movie that came to my mind. A few more:

I'm particularly fond of "the two yoots" comment, and Mona's "biological clock is ticking" on the front porch.

Of course they could never do that skit today, especially not with Mel Blanc's costume.

Re: There's no such thing as a good courtroom drama movie.

Hahaha! That was a good skit, and you could see Jack losing it. I always liked Jack Benny's skits, his humour, so dry, the delivery was so droll and deadpan. He knew the importance of beats as well.

Re: There's no such thing as a good courtroom drama movie.

That was a great skit. It's one of the few times I ever saw Benny almost crack up.

Re: There's no such thing as a good courtroom drama movie.

That's part of what made this skit even funnier, is that Benny's known for that straight face of his, and that dry delivery. To see him genuinely lose composure,…and I think that was a legitimate goofed delivery when he called Mel Su then Si and Mel quickly corrected him to Sy. It was rapid fire. Quick thinking.

Re: There's no such thing as a good courtroom drama movie.

Oh yes, that was definitely a flub. That made it even funnier, but pro that he is,
Benny recovered quickly.

An excellent film!

A Time to Kill has some courtroom scenes, and those scenes pretty much hammered in the ruling of a good movie, according to the verdict from the podium. While a courtroom might not always be the most exciting place within a movie, it can certainly the ominous and judiciary setting that could easily be necessary to establish and set up certain plot points, combined with retribution.

A Few Good Men

Re: There's no such thing as a good courtroom drama movie.

Two hours without a recess is just … BORING! That's why Perry Mason and Matlock worked better than the movies.

The movies, I like! It's real life trials that can be a trial. I've served on Jury Duty a couple of times. Dull cases… Lawyers who could teach some of the trolls here a thing or two in Double Talk!
I love Courtroom Dramas. This one led the way! He's my hero!

Re: There's no such thing as a good courtroom drama movie.

Completely agree! Hands down. And that intro? Love it!

What did you make of Ironside?

Re: There's no such thing as a good courtroom drama movie.

Me too.

Didn't care as much for Ironside as I liked Perry.

What were the cases? I have received summonses twice but never had to serve.

Also Primal Fear is a court room drama and it’s one the best mystery films ever made.

Great choice! That's one I was gonna mention - it's one of my faves :)

Re: There's no such thing as a good courtroom drama movie.

"A Few Good Men" is a fantastic courtroom drama movie, as is "To Kill a Mockingbird."

The train is coming with shiny cars, comfy seats, and wheels of stars. Hush, little ones, have no fear; the man in the moon is the engineer.

Re: There's no such thing as a good courtroom drama movie.

I took a law class where we watched about 15 courtroom movies. Many were boring. One had an alcoholic lawyer in it. Robert Redford, maybe? To Kill a Mickibgbird was one. I ended up doing my oral presentation in that class on the negative portrayal of the law in action movies. I used T2 and Matrix as examples…where the cops are usually the enemy.

From 1986 to 1994, I finally graduated.
