Actress Fritzi Burr's performance as Judge Alice McCardle was accidentally left of the movie's credits. The 10th August 1983 edition of show-business trade paper 'Daily Variety' reports that Peter Hyams, producer Frank Yablans and the 20th Century Fox Film Corporation ran an advertisement apologizing for this mistake and oversight and praising Burr for her acting contribution to the movie.

this is one of my favorite movies of all time! Not only does it have an all star cast, but is well written and really brings up some very good points about the law. The acting is amazing and is a great story. Deserves 4 stars instead of the two it received. Star Chamber has some of the best actors in it, including Michael Douglas, Hal Holbrook, Yaphet Kotto, Don Calfa, and Joe Regalbuto, just to name a few of the most popular. If you haven't seen this movie, SEE IT. It deals with the law and how the American Justice system is sometimes perverted, and an idea that even though the law isn't always right, it has its reasons for being that way.
