Order in the Court

Anatomy of a Murder (1959)
Dir - Otto Preminger

Now this is how it's done folks! Compelling, at times humorous, courtroom drama starring Jimmy Stewart and George C. Scott. Quick, intelligent dialog back and forth in, and out, of the courtroom. Can't help but feel this might be a little risque for the time in regards to some of the subject matter. Was a bit confused by the whole "panties" debacle and how an entire courtroom full of adults will erupt into laughter over the word in conjunction with them belonging to a rape victim.
