Product Description

Product Description

Clarence Darrow (Kevin Spacey) was integral to a number of changes in the US judicial system at the end of the 19th century, which came as a result of his ground-breaking defences of a number of just causes. This biopic charts his rise from farmer's son to pioneering lawyer, taking part in landmark cases such as the Pullman railroad strike, the Leopold/Loeb murder trial and the Scopes monkey trial.

From the Back Cover

Some called him "Lawyer for the Damned"but Clarence Darrow was simply a man who, in time of justice, had the courage to stand alone.

Oscar winning actor Kevin Spacey (American Beauty) gives another breathtaking performance as Clarence Darrow, a name permanently linked to the tremendous strides in the American Legal system from the late 19th century through the early decades of the 20th century. This charismatic and one-time farm boy's history-making legal defences of the Pullman Railroad Strike, the Leopold/Leob Murder Trial and the Scopes Monkey Trial, have earned him the status of an authentic American hero.

Format: VHS Tape
This is a powerful film featuring a magnificent performance from Kevin Spacey as Clarence Darrow, a lawyer who fought against injustice and for the rights of the exploited, making him a legendary American hero of the people. I found this film an important history lesson into the dreadful working conditions for many Americans at the turn of the last Century and a good insight into how the American Legal system worked at that time. Kevin Spacey is completely captivating throughout, giving, in my opinion, one of the best performances of his career. This man can do no wrong! I can thoroughly recommend this film to anyone.

Made just before Spacey made it truly big, this is a biopic of the famous US liberal lawyer who made a reputation of defending hard cases. Spacey's performance is mesmerizing - for example, his soliloquy in the closing stages of the notorious Leopold and Loeb case (following the verbatim record of the trial) is a truly great piece of acting. Bargain price. Highly recommended

Ths is a better than usual American TV movie.
It deals with an important period in the history of American Trade Unionism and does feature some impressive courtroom speeches from Clarence Darrow. However Darrow is a flawed human being, his treatment of his first wife and son is disgraceful and stops you feeling sorry for him when he is deserted by his friends.
The production is pretty good although they don`t do a great job of ageing Kevin Spacey.
A fair way to pass a couple of hours.

... which is the least to expect when you pay three times the price of the product just on delivery (so much for living on the other side of the Irish Sea).

But £10 overall remains cheap for a Spacey film ;)

I usually don't sleep through a movie with a talent like Kevin Spacey taking center stage. This unfortunately was an exception. Prehaps it was the theme, prehaps it was the awful makeup applied to age the characters, or maybe it was because the film never engaged the viewer. The film was story telling at a primary level and not even Kevin with his unique ability to slip into the skin of the characters he portrays could save this one. Sorry I was expecting a lot more.

I like Kevin Spacey and he's very good, as ever. But the film is not so good and is not a great showcase for his talent. And, unfortunately, it does not deal with the Scope's 'Monkey Trial' - the main reason most people have heard of Clarence Darrow and the main reason we bought this.

This film explains how Darrow instigated a lot of the modern tolerance and sympathy for perpetrators of the most evil acts of humanity, which have come home to roost in the breakdown of western society and civilisation. Not suitable for respectable children under 16.
