The Verdict is in, The Lawyer is Out-Standing!
27 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Lawyer, is a 1970 over-looked gem. Barry Newman in his best role, as a dedicated lawyer who will go to the ends of the world to prove that his client, a doctor, is innocent in the murder of his beautiful wife.

Based in part on the Dr. Sam Shepperd murder trail of the late 1950s/early 1960s. The Lawyer is fast paced and extremely well-acted. Blonde bombshell Mary Wilcox is worth the price of this film alone. It's truly amazing how this beautiful,well-built, and highly gifted actress never became more than a character actress.

Your honor, I rest my case. The Lawyer is tops! 10 out of 10.
