"I could have sworn I've seen this before but after watching it tonight I don't think so. I know why I wouldn't have committed, I mean it is 2hr40min. Plus I think I would have remembered a movie where Jimmy Stewart repeatedly says the words, "rape" and "panties." This was a good courtroom drama in any era but I am shocked at the material they're dealing with in a 1959 movie. Not only the material but how they leave things by the end. This is where the spoilers come in: So Jimmy Stewart wins the case. He gets Ben Gazzara (aka the Bad Guy in Road House) off for murdering the guy who raped his wife. But the weird part is, the underlying current of this movie is this: His wife slept around and flirted with everyone in town, he was a jealous, angry wife beater with a temper, and Jimmy Stewart slowly learns this fact. But then he wins the case and everyone moves on, with the facts the same and nothing changes. That seems normal in a movie today but is shocking to see in 1957."
