The Making of A Classic Motion PictureDVD - 2009
This independent documentary explores the events leading up to and including the making of Otto Preminger's classic 1959 courtroom thriller Anatomy of a Murder. The movie starred James Stewart, Lee Remick, Ben Gazzara and George C. Scott. Preminger's film was shot entirely on location in Marquette County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula over a period of eight weeks. It was based on a number one best selling book by attorney John Voelker, who used the pen name Robert Traver. Traver's groundbreaking narrative was developed from a true-life 1952 murder trial. Durning those proceedings Voelker defended an Army lieutenant accused of first-degreee murder.
