| One of the greatest films ever made. All should see this film|
|Battle of the Giants||1fatts 06/16/2009 |
| The story is that when this movie was being shot, actors on the lot would find their way to the set to just hang out and watch the battle of the giants: Spencer Tracy and Fredric March. It was a good script; no one could direct courtroom like Stanley Kramer; nice casting; great set: but it is, in the end, March and Tracy eating the scenery and creating character. |
Other good things deserve to be said about this movie, but it's watching the two actors of their generation pull out the stops that overshadows everything else.
