Anatomy of a Murder is a courtroom drama directed by Otto Preminger and based on the best-selling novel by Robert Traver. A soldier claims temporary insanity after killing a man who (perhaps) raped his wife. Lawyer Paul Biegler has his work cut out for him in proving the case, though, as the local district attorney is being helped by a bigwig prosecutor from the state capital, Mr. Dancer, and the prosecution refuses to accept the rape claim. As the trial continues to turn into a battle of wills between Dancer and Biegler, new information comes to light and even Biegler begins to wonder about his client's innocence.
