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.


"My opinion is that (a) anyone who actually works in a video store and does not understand letterboxing has given up on life, and (b) any customer who prefers to have the sides of a movie hacked off should not be licensed to operate a video player."-- Roger Ebert

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.
