I have tried several times over the years to get Showtime to release this on DVD. I was able to record it on my Betamax when it aired in 1983. Luckily the VCR and tape still work so far.
That's how much I love this story. Of course it's a remake of the 1968 TV presentation that was based on a Broadway play and book. It highlights the McCarthy era and its numerous anti-Communist libels. But it's just as relevant today with leftist/social-justice liberals bashing anyone who doesn't conform with their views.
The fallback when you're not willing or able to coherently debate an issue is to try to destroy anyone holding an opposing view. The defendant uses cutesy memorable phrases to tell his lies, and the plaintiff and his attorney have the courage to call him out on them, even though his newspaper has the big bucks to pour into their defense.
What are the odds any liberal college professors would dare screen this in their classrooms today?
