The Verdict

This is my tribute to Paul Newman. I saw this movie in 1982 with my wife when we were first dating. I identified with Newman’s portrayal of Frank Galvin, the alcoholic lawyer who’s own sense of right and wrong is so offended by the privileged position taken by the authorities at a large Catholic hospital that he takes on this case of a woman left in a coma by medical malpractice. It is the classic battle of good and evil.  This summation scene is powerful and one of Paul Newman’s best.
