Legal movies worth checking out

Here's a good posting for a dreary Sunday, some of the top legal movies of all time. I would have all of these on my list:

-- My Cousin Vinny (hilarious);
-- To Kill a Mockingbird (Atticus Finch and Scout -- how can you go wrong?);
-- The Verdict (A down-and-out P.I. lawyer, Paul Newman, takes on a major med-mal case);
-- The Firm (fun plot, if a little clumsily executed. Plus Wilford Brimley as a bad guy ...);
-- Witness for the Prosecution (A great take on an Agatha Christie story)

I can't believe you left out the "Legally Blonde" oeuvre. Those films form the base of my opinions of what constitutes the law profession at the present moment.

Thanks, Jeff --

The editor would like to point out that this entry come from his brother, who is the chair of the English Department at George Washington University. We are glad to know that his taste in legal movies is so high brow. (Although I must admit that I found the first "Legally Blonde" movie amusing ...)
