This was high-octane courtroom drama long before CSI, and much more in your face than perry mason. Brooding Ed Asner and sharp acerbic Travianti play off each other to great effect.

I was a child when I saw this and was riveted to the screen, so I'm guessing there was some melodrama :) but that does not take away from how much fun it is to see Asner growling at someone.

It's clear they have lots of fun with the material, and it's a pity we don't see more of Travianti these days.

If you can get this, go out do so.
