    The Verdict
    Nominated for five Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best director and Best Actor, The Verdict is “stirring, entertaining cinema” (Us)! This Blu-ray™ release is packed with compelling special features including on-camera interviews with Oscar® winner Paul Newman* and legendary director Sidney Lumet and is the perfect way to experience “one of the finest courtroom movies ever made” (New York)!
    Frank Galvin (Newman) is a boozy washed-up attorney with a losing streak a mile long. so when he’s handed a lucrative out-of-court settlement, everyone expects him to take the money and run. But Frank is tired of running. In a desperate bid to reclaim his self-respect, he recklessly brings the case to court – only to discover that if finding the whole truth is a little like trial and error, then finding real justice is a lot like trial by fire.
    *Actor, The Color of Money, 1986.

    Makes a great double feature with To Kill a Mockingbird, as the two films cover the spectrum of portrayals of lawyers on film.

    Never saw THE VERDICT or BRUBAKER, but judging from the responses in both threads they look like blind-purchases. ...so, I ordered them both for $13.99 each. Great price.

    Don't think you'll be sorry, Ron. I've pre-ordered both as well.

    IMO, Paul Newman's Oscar for The Color Of Money was really given to him as a make-up for his performance here in The Verdict. Great movie

    I agree completely. This is one of, if not his greatest performances.

    I always thought his greatest acting performance was in Hud.

    And they announced a real rarity the other day - In Old Arizona which I never expected to see on Blu-ray in a zillion years.
