* TheJudge: Played by Joseph N. Welch, a real-life lawyer most famous for his TakeThat against Senator UsefulNotes/JosephMcCarthy ("Have you no sense of decency, sir?") during the 1954 Senate subcommittee hearings investigating [=McCarthy=]'s accusations of [[RedScare Communists in the U.S. Army]]. Welch joked that he took the movie role because it was the closest he'd ever come to being a judge.

* AmbiguousEnding: And yet it's almost ''the least'' ambiguous part of the film. In fact, the whole film about as MindScrew'y as a 100% realistic movie can get.

* ReallyGetsAround: Paul's secretary says this about Laura after first meeting her, and it's true. Laura is back to hitting the bars while her husband is in prison, and she invites Biegler into her trailer.

* ReallyGetsAround: Paul's secretary says this about Laura after first meeting her, and it's true. Laura is back to hitting the bars while her husband is in prison, and she invites Biegler into her trailer. However, it's not clearly established whether she actually sleeps with anybody except her husband (as opposed to shameless flirting).

* AssholeVictim: The Manions' story paints Quill as one, but we never get a definitive answer as to whether he did rape Laura.

* TheUnreveal: [[spoiler: Did Quill actually rape Laura at all, and who really hit her? The film seems to be setting up TheKillerWasLeftHanded-Laura's black eye was her right eye, Quill is shown in a picture with a gun in his right hand, and Manion smokes a cigarette with his left hand-but this is not followed up on in the movie.]]

** [[spoiler: The latter can be excused (if you can call it that) as a result of his shell-shock over the first instance: you can clearly see the look of horror/annoyance on his face as he realizes that he's made one of the oldest mistakes in the book. Though it's an OffScreenMomentOfAwesome, he absolutely ''shreds'' the defense's case in closing arguments.]]
