Bombshell on the Box – Lee alert!

January 29, 2010

ANATOMY OF A MURDER, BBC2, Sun Jan 31, 12.40am

Auburn bombshell Lee Remick (dressed in dowdy suit and bookish specs in order to look respectable) flirts with her attorney (James Stewart) in Otto Preminger’s controversial and ground-breaking 1959 drama Anatomy of a Murder.

Lee plays the good-time girl whose claim that she has been raped is used as the defence in her husband’s trial for the murder of her alleged rapist. Ben Gazzara and the wonderful, wise-cracking 1930s bombshell Eve Arden also star.
