Part of A Salute to Billy Strayhorn May 28-30

Anatomy of a Murder (1959)

NR, 2h 40min


ABOUT THIS EVENT
Otto Preminger’s epic courtroom drama featuring a stellar cast led by James Stewart, Lee Remick, George C. Scott and Ben Gazarra was nominated for seven Academy Awards. The music of Strayhorn and Ellington plays an important role in the film, which was one of the first blockbusters to highlight jazz and African American composers.

Presented through the generous support of the Revada Foundation of the Logan Family
