Voelker; the novel was in turn based on a 1952 murder case in which Voelker was the defense attorney.

Paul Biegler ([[Creator/JimmyStewart James Stewart]]) is a small-town Michigan lawyer who can't be bothered with doing legal work, and spends most of his time fishing and playing jazz piano. He's called in to defend loutish, wife-beating US Army Lieutenant Frederick "Manny" Manion (Ben Gazzara), who has been arrested for killing innkeeper Barney Quill. Manion does not deny the murder, and smugly insists he was perfectly justified because Quill raped his wife, Laura (Lee Remick). Biegler knows better, however, and the story follows Biegler's attempts to get Manion acquitted, opposed by a prosecution team headed by assistant Attorney General Claude Dancer (Creator/GeorgeCScott, in only his second film role.)
