This sounds like fun. Denver & region is now Ellroy’s stomping grounds. He hangs at Elway’s restaurant (his “office”) and hosts these films in Littleton, Colorado (“Anatomy of a Murder” shows on Jan 23 – more info in article).
We picked “Anatomy of a Murder” as one of our top 10 legal films in “A Lawyer’s Primer for Writers: From Crimes to Courtrooms.” Love this quote by Jimmy Stewart (describes Shaun to a T – LOL!):
“I spent a lot of time memorizing my lines for that movie. The picture demanded an awful lot of time and thought. As the defense attorney I knew I had to be glibber than usual. Trial lawyers are neither shy nor inarticulate.”
