The Movie: "Presumed Innocent"

Every time this movie comes on HBO (like tonight), I'm hooked. Actor Raul Julia (now deceased) may have been the coolest and smartest criminal defense attorney ever portrayed on the big screen. (The reason for changing his defense strategy mid-trial was, as he explained to his distressed client, based on "instinct"). And Judge Larry Little was great.

My favorite part was hearing the judge refer to the prosecutor as Mr. DEE-LA-GWAARDEEA.
