Movies Verdict, The (1982, Paul Newman, Jack Warden) Published 6 months ago on November 27, 2018 Paul Newman turns in a stunning performance in this atmospheric courtroom thriller as Frank Galvin, a struggling alcoholic lawyer with a past littered with lost jobs and a divorce. Lonely and spending most of his time making friends with beer and whisky, his future looks a bleak prospect, until lawyer friend Jack Warden puts some work his way. What initially seems like an open and shut case regarding medical malpractice turns into Galvin’s one-man battle to rediscover his dignity. Despite the somewhat obvious nature of the plot, the film is lifted by Mamet’s screenplay but most of all by Newman’s performance, delivered with the effortless ease of a true great who can transcend ‘acting’ at will. In addition, Charlotte Rampling, Jack Warden James Mason and Milo O’Shea provide sterling support in a true ensemble cast. production details USA | 129 minutes | 1982 Director: Sidney Lumet Script: David Mamet Barry Reed cast Paul Newman as Frank Galvin Jack Warden as Mickey Morrissey James Mason as Ed Concannon Charlotte Rampling as Laura Fischer Milo O’Shea as Judge Hoyle Roxanne Hart as Sally Doneghy James Handy as Kevin Doneghy Edward Binns as Bishop Brophy Joe Seneca as Dr. Thompson Julie Bovasso as Maureen Rooney Wesley Addy as Dr. Towler Lindsay Crouse as Kaitlin Costello Kent Broadhurst as Joseph Alito Lewis J.
