00:01:19,665 --> 00:01:21,455


Yeah! Go, buddy, go!
2
00:01:23,085 --> 00:01:25,835
That baby's going scared. Ha-ha-ha.
3
00:01:27,005 --> 00:01:29,045
Whoo! Yeah!
4
00:01:29,215 --> 00:01:31,255
Hell, yeah!
5
00:01:31,425 --> 00:01:33,925
- Excited, yeah?
- Go, baby! Ooh!
6
00:01:34,095 --> 00:01:36,635
Yeah!
7
00:01:45,020 --> 00:01:46,355
I don't wanna do nothing...
8
00:01:50,944 --> 00:01:52,695
We got her, bro. Here we go.
9
00:01:52,863 --> 00:01:54,238
Give me one.
10
00:01:54,656 --> 00:01:55,990
Get them, get them, get them.
11
00:01:56,158 --> 00:01:57,366
Hey, boys!
12
00:01:57,534 --> 00:01:58,826
How y'all doing today?
13
00:01:58,994 --> 00:02:01,537
What are you looking at?
You wanna get shot?
14
00:02:01,705 --> 00:02:03,831
You wanna get shot? Woo-hoo!
15
00:02:05,417 --> 00:02:07,335

Go, baby!
16
00:02:08,253 --> 00:02:10,338
- Got it!
- Pearl Harbor! Pearl Harbor!
17
00:02:19,389 --> 00:02:21,224
Hey!
18
00:02:22,559 --> 00:02:24,227
And here's another one.
19
00:02:24,394 --> 00:02:25,978
Watch this, Billy Ray!
20
00:02:26,146 --> 00:02:27,188
Hundred points!
21
00:02:27,731 --> 00:02:29,732
Yeah!
22
00:02:38,742 --> 00:02:40,743
- It's a beautiful day, isn't it?
Uh-huh.
23
00:03:06,645 --> 00:03:08,563
- Bye, Tonya.
- Bye.
24
00:03:19,408 --> 00:03:21,158
Clean up that mess, boy.
25
00:03:22,953 --> 00:03:24,453
- Pete, hungry?
- Huh?
26
00:03:24,621 --> 00:03:27,164
Hey. Ha-ha-ha.
27
00:03:27,791 --> 00:03:30,877
- Oh, you're not having anything?
- Yeah, I'm having them.
28
00:03:33,213 --> 00:03:34,964
Course, it's shit.
29

00:03:35,257 --> 00:03:36,966


- Bye, girls.
- Bye, Daddy.
30
00:03:37,134 --> 00:03:38,926
Let's go, Max.
31
00:03:41,430 --> 00:03:43,973
Get in the house, pup. Harry Rex.
32
00:03:44,141 --> 00:03:48,144
All those weekends, fishing,
drinking, lounging...
33
00:03:48,312 --> 00:03:51,814
opportunities lost
to do-it-yourself house renovations.
34
00:03:51,982 --> 00:03:55,151
- Tragic, just tragic, Jake.
- Yeah.
35
00:03:56,653 --> 00:03:58,529
Makes Carla happy, my man.
36
00:03:58,697 --> 00:04:01,741
Spent four marriages trying to figure out
what makes women happy.
37
00:04:01,909 --> 00:04:03,367
You have spent four marriages...
38
00:04:03,535 --> 00:04:06,412
trying to figure out what makes
you happy, who you kidding?
39
00:04:06,580 --> 00:04:08,706
Oh, yeah. Maybe that's it.
40
00:04:08,874 --> 00:04:10,166
Yeah, maybe.
41
00:04:10,334 --> 00:04:13,127
- Swiggy?
- Lord, please let my car be fixed today.
42
00:04:13,295 --> 00:04:15,129

Oh, dear.
43
00:04:30,604 --> 00:04:31,646
Hey, who's that?
44
00:04:34,691 --> 00:04:36,692
She looks a little young.
45
00:04:36,860 --> 00:04:38,903
- Hold this.
- What are you gonna do?
46
00:04:39,071 --> 00:04:42,823
You know how I say if they're old enough
to crawl, they're in the right position.
47
00:04:42,991 --> 00:04:45,493
What are you gonna do?
What are you gonna do? You crazy.
48
00:04:51,041 --> 00:04:53,876
- Whoo! Yeah! Fifty points!
Ha-ha-ha.
49
00:04:54,044 --> 00:04:55,378
Yeah, you good, boy.
50
00:04:56,713 --> 00:04:58,172
Shut up!
51
00:04:58,590 --> 00:05:00,675
- Daddy!
- Hey!
52
00:05:03,971 --> 00:05:05,596
- Shut up.
- Daddy!
53
00:05:05,764 --> 00:05:07,723
Shut up.
54
00:05:08,308 --> 00:05:09,767
- I'll kill you.
- My turn.
55
00:05:12,437 --> 00:05:14,730
- Daddy!

- Shut up.
56
00:05:15,065 --> 00:05:16,899
Daddy.
57
00:05:19,820 --> 00:05:21,195
Yeah.
58
00:05:24,700 --> 00:05:25,866
Mom! Mama!
59
00:05:26,034 --> 00:05:28,661
Mom! Mama!
60
00:05:28,829 --> 00:05:30,579
Mom!
61
00:05:33,792 --> 00:05:35,668
Mama!
62
00:05:36,545 --> 00:05:38,087
Mom.
63
00:05:40,424 --> 00:05:42,633
- What is this?
- Groceries.
64
00:05:42,801 --> 00:05:45,594
- Y'all didn't see her?
- No, ma'am.
65
00:05:54,104 --> 00:05:55,646
Carl Lee! Stop!
66
00:05:55,814 --> 00:05:59,275
- You got a call from your wife!
- What? What?
67
00:06:26,762 --> 00:06:28,846
How many appointments
do we have today, Ethel?
68
00:06:29,014 --> 00:06:31,265
Not a one.
69
00:06:31,641 --> 00:06:34,602

But it is the 1st of the month again


and guess what.
70
00:06:34,770 --> 00:06:39,023
The checks are pouring in and we have
enough money to pay all our past debts.
71
00:06:39,191 --> 00:06:41,609
That'll be your last drink.
72
00:06:41,777 --> 00:06:44,904
Just keep us no more than
one month behind on any vendor, please.
73
00:06:45,072 --> 00:06:46,947
Why, you have been drinking.
74
00:06:47,115 --> 00:06:48,157
Two months.
75
00:06:48,325 --> 00:06:50,409
Well, these are the most delinquent.
76
00:06:50,577 --> 00:06:52,745
The rent's in there.
77
00:06:52,913 --> 00:06:58,209
I appreciate the practice, capitn, I do, but
you could've left me a couple of clients.
78
00:07:05,509 --> 00:07:08,010
Baby, here's Daddy.
79
00:07:12,182 --> 00:07:14,558
Oh, no.
80
00:07:16,978 --> 00:07:20,189
I'm here, baby. Daddy's here.
81
00:07:20,357 --> 00:07:24,193
Daddy, I'm sorry I dropped the groceries.
82
00:07:24,361 --> 00:07:28,197
- That's all right, baby. It's all right, baby.
- I'm sorry, Daddy.
83

00:07:28,365 --> 00:07:30,199


That's all right.
84
00:07:56,226 --> 00:07:57,810
Look at this.
85
00:08:25,463 --> 00:08:26,547
Billy Ray?
86
00:08:27,382 --> 00:08:32,052
Sorry, sir, but we don't allow
no African-Americans in here. Ha, ha.
87
00:08:32,220 --> 00:08:35,222
Billy Ray Cobb, you and Mr. Willard
need to come with me.
88
00:08:36,141 --> 00:08:37,600
Hell, no. I ain't moving.
89
00:08:37,767 --> 00:08:40,811
- You know that little girl you took for a ride?
- Mm.
90
00:08:40,979 --> 00:08:44,231
- What little girl?
- I got bad news for you. She didn't die.
91
00:08:44,608 --> 00:08:48,694
So unless there's another redneck asshole
got a souped-up yellow pickup...
92
00:08:48,862 --> 00:08:51,280
with a Confederate flag
in the windshield...
93
00:08:51,448 --> 00:08:54,909
Blue gums, why don't you take your
black ass out of here and grab a branch.
94
00:08:55,076 --> 00:08:59,121
Unless you got an explanation for what
this was doing in the bed of your truck...
95
00:09:00,123 --> 00:09:02,625
you're going to jail. Now, get up.
96

00:09:03,668 --> 00:09:05,628


You can go to hell, nigger.
97
00:09:05,795 --> 00:09:08,255
- Unh! Goddamn!
- Hey!
98
00:09:12,469 --> 00:09:15,387
Now, you earned
the right to remain silent.
99
00:09:15,847 --> 00:09:18,599
- Here you go, just the way you like them.
- Thank you.
100
00:09:18,767 --> 00:09:21,435
- Dell, sugar, today I'm gonna have...
Go to hell, Harry.
101
00:09:21,603 --> 00:09:24,021
On second thought,
I'm just gonna watch baby eat his.
102
00:09:24,189 --> 00:09:26,232
I am not the one
who handled her divorce.
103
00:09:26,399 --> 00:09:28,317
Can't she see
I'm shriveling away here?
104
00:09:28,485 --> 00:09:29,944
I'm shriveling.
105
00:09:30,111 --> 00:09:32,738
- Say, Jake?
- Yeah, what's up, Dwayne?
106
00:09:33,406 --> 00:09:36,325
Didn't you defend Billy Ray Cobb
few years back?
107
00:09:37,661 --> 00:09:39,703
What kind of case was it?
108
00:09:39,871 --> 00:09:41,330
Caught him selling dope.

109
00:09:41,498 --> 00:09:43,666
Spent time in Parchman.
Got out last year.
110
00:09:44,334 --> 00:09:46,919
No, I think some Memphis lawyer
handled that.
111
00:09:47,087 --> 00:09:48,754
Why do you ask?
112
00:09:48,922 --> 00:09:51,507
Well, we picked him up for rape.
Him and Pete Willard.
113
00:09:51,675 --> 00:09:52,841
Who'd they rape?
114
00:09:54,469 --> 00:09:56,011
You know Carl Lee Hailey?
115
00:09:56,388 --> 00:09:58,305
Sure, I defended his brother Lester.
116
00:10:00,558 --> 00:10:02,393
It was his little girl.
117
00:10:05,438 --> 00:10:06,563
Little Tonya?
118
00:10:07,983 --> 00:10:09,733
Yeah.
119
00:10:12,028 --> 00:10:13,112
How old is she?
120
00:10:14,781 --> 00:10:16,365
She's 10.
121
00:10:58,950 --> 00:11:01,827
Mr. Willard, I'm Sheriff Ozzie Walls.
122
00:11:02,537 --> 00:11:05,205
My mama voted for you.
123

00:11:06,708 --> 00:11:08,751


I seen you play for the Rams.
124
00:11:11,046 --> 00:11:14,798
Way I figure, a nigger sheriff's okay,
been on TV and all.
125
00:11:17,719 --> 00:11:19,011
No offense.
126
00:11:22,349 --> 00:11:23,849
What's your full name?
127
00:11:24,017 --> 00:11:26,435
James Lewis Willard.
128
00:11:29,939 --> 00:11:33,525
Four, which is a difference of 110.60.
129
00:11:36,946 --> 00:11:38,781
Who's there?
130
00:11:57,634 --> 00:11:59,468
Carl Lee.
131
00:12:04,933 --> 00:12:06,725
How is she?
132
00:12:07,685 --> 00:12:09,812
She holding on.
133
00:12:10,814 --> 00:12:13,607
Doctor says she ain't
out of the woods yet, though.
134
00:12:21,157 --> 00:12:23,867
They worked her over
something good, Jake.
135
00:12:31,334 --> 00:12:35,754
You remember them four white boys raped that
little black girl in the Delta last year?
136
00:12:38,258 --> 00:12:39,341
Yeah.
137

00:12:39,509 --> 00:12:41,343


They, uh....
138
00:12:41,511 --> 00:12:43,053
They got off, didn't they?
139
00:12:45,432 --> 00:12:46,932
Yeah.
140
00:12:51,604 --> 00:12:53,564
Jake....
141
00:12:54,023 --> 00:12:56,692
I was in a jam, you'd help me out,
wouldn't you?
142
00:12:58,945 --> 00:13:00,863
Sure, Carl Lee.
143
00:13:03,074 --> 00:13:04,908
What kind of jam you talking about?
144
00:13:05,952 --> 00:13:08,245
You got a daughter, Jake.
145
00:13:08,413 --> 00:13:10,289
What would you do?
146
00:13:20,967 --> 00:13:22,926
Dream some good dreams, baby girl.
147
00:13:23,261 --> 00:13:25,721
Good night, Daddy.
148
00:13:26,014 --> 00:13:27,890
Night, baby.
149
00:13:43,573 --> 00:13:45,616
- Is she asleep?
- Yeah.
150
00:13:45,825 --> 00:13:48,535
- Is she the sweetest thing?
- Yeah, she is.
151
00:13:48,703 --> 00:13:50,704

Next to you.
152
00:13:51,247 --> 00:13:55,751
Tell you what, I look at her, though, and
I cannot help but think about little Tonya.
153
00:13:57,420 --> 00:13:59,087
Don't.
154
00:14:01,925 --> 00:14:04,009
Don't do that to yourself.
155
00:14:04,761 --> 00:14:05,844
Yeah.
156
00:14:10,058 --> 00:14:11,099
Something else wrong?
157
00:14:12,560 --> 00:14:14,520
Tonya's father...
158
00:14:14,687 --> 00:14:16,772
Carl Lee Hailey...
159
00:14:16,940 --> 00:14:18,273
came by the office today.
160
00:14:20,527 --> 00:14:23,278
Man's heart is torn wide open, baby.
161
00:14:23,446 --> 00:14:25,030
I don't know, but...
162
00:14:25,198 --> 00:14:28,033
sounded to me
like he was thinking about doing something.
163
00:14:28,201 --> 00:14:29,243
Like what?
164
00:14:30,954 --> 00:14:32,996
Something like maybe
killing those two boys.
165
00:14:33,623 --> 00:14:34,957
Was he serious?

166
00:14:38,920 --> 00:14:41,129
I don't know. I don't know.
167
00:14:41,297 --> 00:14:43,966
It could've been just the hurt talking,
you know?
168
00:14:44,467 --> 00:14:48,136
But when you think that it's possible
that those two animals could...
169
00:14:48,304 --> 00:14:50,180
go free...
170
00:14:51,099 --> 00:14:53,475
and be walking the streets....
171
00:14:55,979 --> 00:14:57,604
I....
172
00:14:58,356 --> 00:14:59,648
I don't know.
173
00:15:01,651 --> 00:15:05,529
After what that man has been through,
he's probably capable of anything.
174
00:15:06,823 --> 00:15:09,241
Somebody should do something.
175
00:15:09,826 --> 00:15:11,493
You should call Sheriff Walls.
176
00:15:13,079 --> 00:15:14,663
Yeah.
177
00:16:10,094 --> 00:16:13,263
To release the owner from assessment.
178
00:16:16,643 --> 00:16:21,063
I hope I'm having a heart attack
because then I'd get to sue you.
179
00:16:21,230 --> 00:16:23,899
Don't stand on ceremony, come on in.

180
00:16:24,067 --> 00:16:26,068
What? No clients?
181
00:16:26,235 --> 00:16:29,071
Just waiting to pick yours up
on appeal, Harry.
182
00:16:29,238 --> 00:16:32,574
And you, are you on vacation?
183
00:16:33,159 --> 00:16:35,285
Fortunately for me, my lovely...
184
00:16:35,453 --> 00:16:37,746
divorce doesn't go on vacation.
185
00:16:38,122 --> 00:16:39,581
However...
186
00:16:39,749 --> 00:16:43,335
not even the richest, most ridiculous
settlement I ever bring in...
187
00:16:43,503 --> 00:16:46,296
is gonna be as satisfying
as watching those two hyenas...
188
00:16:46,464 --> 00:16:49,966
across the street
get what's coming to them.
189
00:16:54,389 --> 00:16:55,639
Oh, dear.
190
00:16:58,434 --> 00:17:02,479
You know I'm a fool for those, um,
German-type convertibles.
191
00:17:04,232 --> 00:17:06,274
Come on, lover boy, let's get to court.
192
00:17:06,442 --> 00:17:09,361
Lucien thinks the two hyenas
just might get off.
193

00:17:09,529 --> 00:17:11,113


You saw Lucien?
194
00:17:11,280 --> 00:17:12,906
When? Where?
195
00:17:13,074 --> 00:17:14,157
How is he?
196
00:17:14,325 --> 00:17:16,201
Has he been eating any better?
197
00:17:19,080 --> 00:17:20,497
Just curious.
198
00:17:20,665 --> 00:17:22,999
Um, Miss Ethel...
199
00:17:23,167 --> 00:17:27,379
refresh my recollection, how long
were you and Lucien together for exactly?
200
00:17:27,547 --> 00:17:28,755
We were never together.
201
00:17:28,923 --> 00:17:31,007
I was his secretary for 20 years.
202
00:17:31,175 --> 00:17:32,968
Come on, old girl.
203
00:17:33,136 --> 00:17:35,637
- You can tell us, you know.
- He was your boyfriend.
204
00:17:35,805 --> 00:17:39,725
I am an upstanding, God-fearing,
respectable Southern woman...
205
00:17:39,892 --> 00:17:44,020
with unimpeachable morals
who has been happily married for 27 years.
206
00:17:44,188 --> 00:17:48,108
And I have never had
or ever will have any boyfriend.

207
00:17:48,276 --> 00:17:49,776
And if I did...
208
00:17:49,944 --> 00:17:55,031
it certainly would not be
that old pickled scoundrel Lucien Wilbanks.
209
00:17:59,412 --> 00:18:02,122
She did him. Oh, yeah, a lot.
210
00:18:08,880 --> 00:18:11,173
All right, Billy Ray, step on back.
211
00:18:11,966 --> 00:18:14,259
Come on out. Willard.
212
00:18:17,180 --> 00:18:19,181
All right, boys, today's your big day.
213
00:18:19,348 --> 00:18:21,224
We're gonna take a trip
to the courthouse.
214
00:18:21,392 --> 00:18:23,059
The judge is gonna set your bail.
215
00:18:23,227 --> 00:18:26,021
Then we're gonna come back here,
all nice and peaceful-like.
216
00:18:26,189 --> 00:18:31,067
I get any trouble out of you,
I'm going to integrate this jail.
217
00:19:57,446 --> 00:20:00,866
Mama, Daddy's home!
Daddy's home!
218
00:20:01,534 --> 00:20:04,327
Hannah girl, let's go inside for a minute.
219
00:20:04,495 --> 00:20:07,038
Give Daddy some time to himself.
220
00:20:07,206 --> 00:20:10,792
- Let's... Let's find a book, okay?

- I wanna see Daddy.


221
00:20:10,960 --> 00:20:12,419
Honey?
222
00:20:41,908 --> 00:20:46,536
Jake? Jake? Are you hurt?
Jake, what happened to you?
223
00:20:46,704 --> 00:20:49,539
Jake, honey, are you okay?
What happened to you?
224
00:20:49,707 --> 00:20:53,001
What is this? What is going on with you?
What happened?
225
00:20:53,169 --> 00:20:55,045
Jake, baby.
226
00:20:56,047 --> 00:20:58,256
What happened?
227
00:21:31,415 --> 00:21:33,541
Okay, okay.
228
00:21:49,642 --> 00:21:50,684
See you, Gwen.
229
00:22:04,782 --> 00:22:06,658
Is the sheriff gonna make a statement?
230
00:22:06,826 --> 00:22:08,618
He might, he might not. I don't know.
231
00:22:08,786 --> 00:22:11,413
- Is it first-degree murder?
- I'm not sure yet.
232
00:22:11,580 --> 00:22:13,581
What happened?
Can you tell us something?
233
00:22:13,749 --> 00:22:16,960
- Sheriff, will you give us a statement.
- I got no comment. No comment.

234
00:22:17,128 --> 00:22:20,088
Hey. Hey, Jake.
Hey, Jake, Carl Lee said you'd be coming.
235
00:22:20,256 --> 00:22:22,549
- Sir, are you an attorney?
- Are you an attorney?
236
00:22:22,717 --> 00:22:26,094
Now, I'll make a statement.
I want y'all to get these vans out of here.
237
00:22:26,262 --> 00:22:28,513
Sir, we've gotta get something
for our newscast.
238
00:22:48,325 --> 00:22:50,118
Didn't think I'd do it, did you?
239
00:22:53,873 --> 00:22:55,707
How you holding up?
240
00:22:59,962 --> 00:23:03,465
I ain't had nothing against them boys
till they messed with my baby.
241
00:23:04,383 --> 00:23:08,595
And I feel sorry for their mamas
and their daddies, but...
242
00:23:09,305 --> 00:23:11,264
I ain't sorry for what I done.
243
00:23:14,518 --> 00:23:15,643
How's Looney?
244
00:23:18,481 --> 00:23:20,273
You blew his knee right off his leg.
245
00:23:21,150 --> 00:23:23,485
Doctors are still with him.
246
00:23:27,448 --> 00:23:28,948
What's gonna happen to me now?
247
00:23:30,451 --> 00:23:32,744

There's gonna be a preliminary hearing.


248
00:23:32,912 --> 00:23:35,205
Probably tomorrow.
249
00:23:35,664 --> 00:23:37,832
After that, Buckley will push
for a fast trial.
250
00:23:38,834 --> 00:23:39,959
Who's Buckley?
251
00:23:40,127 --> 00:23:41,628
Rufus Buckley.
252
00:23:41,796 --> 00:23:42,837
District attorney.
253
00:23:43,005 --> 00:23:47,008
He's mean, he's ambitious, and he's
gonna eat this up because of the publicity.
254
00:23:47,176 --> 00:23:48,968
But you've done beat him, ain't you?
255
00:23:49,470 --> 00:23:51,137
Yeah.
256
00:23:51,514 --> 00:23:53,139
Not in a murder case.
257
00:23:57,019 --> 00:23:58,478
Think I can win?
258
00:23:59,355 --> 00:24:01,731
All depends on the jury, Carl Lee.
259
00:24:02,858 --> 00:24:04,734
Pick the right jury, and you walk.
260
00:24:06,195 --> 00:24:08,196
DA picks the jury...
261
00:24:08,364 --> 00:24:09,656
and you get the gas.

262
00:24:13,202 --> 00:24:14,828
Well, how much...?
263
00:24:14,995 --> 00:24:16,996
How much a case like this cost?
264
00:24:20,042 --> 00:24:21,417
Probably 50 grand.
265
00:24:23,671 --> 00:24:26,631
I can pay maybe 10.
266
00:24:33,472 --> 00:24:38,560
Well, not a lot of white lawyers
would've took my brother Lester's case.
267
00:24:39,061 --> 00:24:41,563
You did and got him off.
268
00:24:42,398 --> 00:24:47,986
I figure there's a lot of people out there
tired of all the raping and killing.
269
00:24:48,154 --> 00:24:52,115
They'd be sympathetic to a man
who took the law into his own hands...
270
00:24:52,283 --> 00:24:53,992
even if he is black.
271
00:25:01,250 --> 00:25:05,170
You said you'd help me out
if I was in a jam, Jake.
272
00:25:05,588 --> 00:25:08,214
Well, I'm in one now.
273
00:25:09,425 --> 00:25:10,550
What you say?
274
00:25:13,179 --> 00:25:16,222
- What can you tell us, sheriff?
- Can you tell us what happened?
275
00:25:16,390 --> 00:25:19,058
- Are you with the police department?

- No, I am a lawyer.
276
00:25:19,226 --> 00:25:21,019
Are you Carl Lee Hailey's attorney?
277
00:25:21,979 --> 00:25:24,439
Sir, are you Mr. Hailey's attorney?
278
00:25:24,607 --> 00:25:25,773
Yes, I am.
279
00:25:25,941 --> 00:25:28,193
- What's your name, sir?
- Brigance. Jake Brigance.
280
00:25:28,360 --> 00:25:29,694
That's with one G.
281
00:25:37,328 --> 00:25:38,786
Hailey's hired an attorney.
282
00:25:39,496 --> 00:25:40,538
Jake Brigance.
283
00:25:43,500 --> 00:25:46,502
And today ain't even my birthday.
284
00:25:46,670 --> 00:25:50,048
Brigance couldn't tie his own tie
without that old drunk Wilbanks.
285
00:25:50,216 --> 00:25:52,175
Telling the press
he never lost a murder case.
286
00:25:52,343 --> 00:25:54,469
Well, he's never tried one against me,
has he?
287
00:25:54,637 --> 00:25:57,138
- What time's the preliminary?
- Tomorrow at 3.
288
00:25:57,306 --> 00:25:59,098
Judge Omar Noose presiding.
289

00:25:59,725 --> 00:26:02,143


Oh, I was wrong. It is my birthday.
290
00:26:02,519 --> 00:26:06,105
All right. First things first,
Brigance will file for a change of venue.
291
00:26:06,273 --> 00:26:09,317
- Guy would be a fool if he didn't.
- Why's that?
292
00:26:09,818 --> 00:26:10,944
Why?
293
00:26:11,111 --> 00:26:13,446
Should we tell our young,
uninformed law clerk...
294
00:26:13,614 --> 00:26:15,782
the reality of jurisprudence
in this county?
295
00:26:15,950 --> 00:26:20,078
Evelyn, get me the state file
on race statistics.
296
00:26:20,246 --> 00:26:21,871
You see, Taylor, it's quite simple.
297
00:26:22,039 --> 00:26:25,124
This county's 26-, 30-percent black,
give or take.
298
00:26:25,292 --> 00:26:29,420
Almost every other county is 40-, 45-,
in some cases 70-percent black.
299
00:26:29,588 --> 00:26:31,714
Blacks are more sympathetic
to other blacks.
300
00:26:31,882 --> 00:26:34,968
If he gets it moved, he has
a greater chance of color in the jury.
301
00:26:35,135 --> 00:26:36,219
We know what that means.

302
00:26:36,387 --> 00:26:39,555
But if the trial stays here,
it's an all-white jury for sure.
303
00:26:39,723 --> 00:26:41,349
Now, Taylor, this is for you...
304
00:26:41,850 --> 00:26:44,394
to integrate your brain with
before 3:00 tomorrow.
305
00:26:44,561 --> 00:26:46,896
- Yes.
- He means without blacks on the jury...
306
00:26:47,064 --> 00:26:49,065
Hailey hasn't got a chance in hell.
307
00:26:49,233 --> 00:26:52,360
- All right, Noose is up for re-elect?
- Yeah, November.
308
00:26:52,528 --> 00:26:54,612
Reach out to our friends
in the legislature.
309
00:26:54,780 --> 00:26:58,408
Have them call on Noose. We're gonna help
him decide to keep this case in Canton.
310
00:26:58,575 --> 00:27:02,412
Also, send a case of whatever it is he's
drinking these days to Lucien Wilbanks.
311
00:27:02,579 --> 00:27:06,082
- I believe that's Dewars.
- Keep that old drunk on the sidelines.
312
00:27:06,250 --> 00:27:07,333
Yeah, get me Sam.
313
00:27:07,501 --> 00:27:09,252
And, gentlemen?
314
00:27:10,546 --> 00:27:13,756
No mistakes.
This is the one we've been waiting for.

315
00:27:14,550 --> 00:27:17,385
Justifiable homicide will never hold up.
316
00:27:17,553 --> 00:27:20,179
Then my only chance
is to find a shrink who'll testify...
317
00:27:20,347 --> 00:27:22,765
Carl Lee was insane
at the time of the murders.
318
00:27:23,058 --> 00:27:27,228
Well, I might know a man
who owes me a favor.
319
00:27:27,896 --> 00:27:31,482
- You'll file for change of venue.
- Of course.
320
00:27:32,568 --> 00:27:35,236
Judge Noose denies it...
321
00:27:35,404 --> 00:27:38,906
then you'll get an all-white jury
and you'll lose.
322
00:27:39,366 --> 00:27:40,825
Thank you for the encouragement.
323
00:27:40,993 --> 00:27:45,913
Well, bear in mind that Mr. Hailey
is as guilty as sin under our legal system.
324
00:27:46,081 --> 00:27:51,919
It does not permit vigilante violence,
and he took the law into his own hands.
325
00:27:52,087 --> 00:27:54,589
He murdered two people.
326
00:27:55,257 --> 00:27:59,635
Two people who had raped
his 10-year-old daughter.
327
00:28:01,764 --> 00:28:03,139
You know...

328
00:28:03,307 --> 00:28:05,558
you can win this case...
329
00:28:05,726 --> 00:28:07,894
and justice will prevail.
330
00:28:08,062 --> 00:28:09,645
But lose...
331
00:28:09,813 --> 00:28:14,192
and justice will also prevail.
Now, that's a strange case.
332
00:28:14,360 --> 00:28:15,985
Yeah.
333
00:28:17,780 --> 00:28:19,989
I could use your help.
334
00:28:22,534 --> 00:28:25,411
The sons of bitches decertified me, Jake.
335
00:28:25,579 --> 00:28:28,956
I swore I will never
enter another courtroom ever.
336
00:28:29,124 --> 00:28:32,543
Lucien, you're the best lawyer
I've ever seen.
337
00:28:32,711 --> 00:28:35,713
Now, I know how much it hurt
when they took your license away...
338
00:28:35,881 --> 00:28:38,341
but they can't take your mind
unless you let them.
339
00:28:39,635 --> 00:28:40,843
Good speech.
340
00:28:41,011 --> 00:28:43,137
Well, I had a good teacher.
341
00:28:43,305 --> 00:28:46,265

Now, you remember when I came to you


out of law school?
342
00:28:47,059 --> 00:28:48,851
In a ridiculous blue suit.
343
00:28:49,019 --> 00:28:50,395
Yeah.
344
00:28:50,562 --> 00:28:54,982
Now, you sat me down and you said to me,
"Young man, I cannot promise you riches.
345
00:28:55,317 --> 00:28:58,820
What I can offer you
is a chance to save the world...
346
00:28:58,987 --> 00:29:00,405
one case at a time."
347
00:29:03,409 --> 00:29:06,661
Well, I'm saying the same words
back to you right now.
348
00:29:08,080 --> 00:29:09,205
How about it, Lucien?
349
00:29:12,709 --> 00:29:15,503
The Lord is my shepherd.
I shall not want.
350
00:29:15,671 --> 00:29:18,798
He maketh me to lie down
in green pastures.
351
00:29:18,966 --> 00:29:21,509
He leadeth me beside still waters.
352
00:29:21,677 --> 00:29:25,346
Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death...
353
00:29:25,514 --> 00:29:29,851
I will fear no evil,
for thou art with me.
354
00:29:30,018 --> 00:29:32,854

Thy rod and thy staff comfort me.


355
00:29:33,188 --> 00:29:36,399
Thou preparest a table before me....
356
00:29:36,567 --> 00:29:39,152
Sure am sorry about your brother,
Freddie.
357
00:29:40,112 --> 00:29:41,904
Old Willard too.
358
00:29:42,072 --> 00:29:44,407
Good boys, both.
359
00:29:49,163 --> 00:29:52,206
Ten years ago, that nigger would
be hanging by the end of a rope...
360
00:29:52,374 --> 00:29:54,292
with his balls in his mouth.
361
00:29:54,460 --> 00:29:56,627
You tell me what's wrong
with this country.
362
00:29:57,379 --> 00:29:58,921
Klan would know what to do.
363
00:30:00,048 --> 00:30:02,008
My granddaddy, he was Klan.
364
00:30:03,093 --> 00:30:07,054
- Ain't no Klan around here for years.
- Oh, there's still some boys around.
365
00:30:07,222 --> 00:30:09,515
Them skinheads who want to
blow up the government?
366
00:30:09,683 --> 00:30:12,810
No, sir. Good God-fearing Klan.
367
00:30:15,189 --> 00:30:17,607
I got a friend, used to be active.
368

00:30:17,774 --> 00:30:18,900


I could give him a call.
369
00:30:20,736 --> 00:30:22,778
You do that, Winston.
370
00:30:22,946 --> 00:30:25,823
You tell them boys we need
some Klan down here in Canton.
371
00:30:25,991 --> 00:30:28,034
I mean right quick.
372
00:30:31,413 --> 00:30:32,455
Hurry up, honey.
373
00:30:32,623 --> 00:30:34,123
Coming, coming, coming.
374
00:30:34,291 --> 00:30:37,418
- Something you can tell us?
- What did Carl Lee tell you?
375
00:30:37,586 --> 00:30:39,212
There's Ozzie.
376
00:30:40,589 --> 00:30:44,759
- To our family's television debut.
- To the big time.
377
00:30:45,385 --> 00:30:49,138
I cannot believe he didn't take you
seriously when you warned him.
378
00:30:49,306 --> 00:30:52,683
Well, baby, you know, some folks
think those boys got what they deserved.
379
00:30:52,851 --> 00:30:56,187
Here, sweet pea. Carl Lee Hailey
may very well spend his life in prison.
380
00:30:56,355 --> 00:30:58,147
That is nothing his family deserves.
381
00:30:58,315 --> 00:30:59,607
- Yeah.

- You did call Ozzie...


382
00:30:59,775 --> 00:31:02,443
- Lookit here. Look who's...
Daddy's on TV.
383
00:31:02,611 --> 00:31:06,572
I intend to show the men and women of the
South to look past color and see the truth.
384
00:31:06,740 --> 00:31:11,160
That here in the South... In the new South,
justice is and will be colorblind.
385
00:31:13,747 --> 00:31:16,290
- Impressive. Honey, that was really good.
- Hmm?
386
00:31:16,458 --> 00:31:18,834
- Isn't Daddy smart?
Mm-hm.
387
00:31:19,002 --> 00:31:20,461
Yeah. Brigance.
388
00:31:20,629 --> 00:31:21,796
- Mm-hm.
- That was great.
389
00:31:21,964 --> 00:31:24,048
Yeah. No, we just saw it.
390
00:31:24,216 --> 00:31:25,550
All right, Harry Rex. Yeah.
391
00:31:25,717 --> 00:31:26,926
Baby, I'm proud of you.
392
00:31:28,303 --> 00:31:29,637
- Good stuff, huh?
- Mm-hm.
393
00:31:29,805 --> 00:31:32,014
- You hear this?
- Put it on speakerphone.
394
00:31:32,182 --> 00:31:34,058

Don't be gross.
395
00:31:34,434 --> 00:31:37,562
- Ahem. F. Lee Bailey's office.
- Brigance.
396
00:31:37,729 --> 00:31:42,483
You nigger-loving son-of-a-bitch,
you won't live if the nigger walks.
397
00:31:42,651 --> 00:31:45,319
Hey, hey. Hey.
398
00:31:46,113 --> 00:31:48,155
Do you have any sympathy for the defense?
399
00:31:48,323 --> 00:31:51,325
Well, of course I do, Stephanie.
You're a mother, I'm a father.
400
00:31:51,493 --> 00:31:54,287
We all have families. Who wouldn't?
401
00:31:54,454 --> 00:31:56,789
Don't presume the district attorney
is insensitive.
402
00:31:56,957 --> 00:31:59,000
But the people
of the state of Mississippi...
403
00:31:59,167 --> 00:32:01,752
entrusted this office
to uphold the law of the land.
404
00:32:01,920 --> 00:32:05,131
Our society cannot condone men
who take the law into their own hands.
405
00:32:05,299 --> 00:32:06,549
No matter the circumstance.
406
00:32:06,717 --> 00:32:09,385
If you get a conviction,
will you ask for the gas chamber?
407
00:32:09,553 --> 00:32:12,179

Yes, I will seek the death penalty


for Mr. Hailey.
408
00:32:12,347 --> 00:32:14,181
What do you think of Mr. Brigance?
409
00:32:14,349 --> 00:32:16,392
Isnt that boy still in law school?
410
00:32:16,560 --> 00:32:18,644
Say hey to your husband for me, Kim.
That s all.
411
00:32:33,368 --> 00:32:36,203
Hey, Cora Mae, don t you worry.
Hey, Wayne, how are you?
412
00:32:36,371 --> 00:32:37,955
Good luck.
413
00:32:39,541 --> 00:32:42,585
You plead him guilty today, I ll ask for life.
Otherwise, he dies.
414
00:32:42,753 --> 00:32:46,339
You drop your case now, and I won t
bury you before the entire county, Rufus.
415
00:32:47,799 --> 00:32:49,008
All rise.
416
00:32:50,844 --> 00:32:54,513
Court is in session.
The Honorable Omar Noose presiding.
417
00:32:54,681 --> 00:32:57,058
Good afternoon, citizens.
418
00:32:59,144 --> 00:33:00,728
Be seated.
419
00:33:00,896 --> 00:33:02,480
Counsel.
420
00:33:02,648 --> 00:33:04,231
And you, sir.

421
00:33:04,399 --> 00:33:06,901
- Are you Carl Lee Hailey?
- Yes, sir.
422
00:33:07,069 --> 00:33:11,072
Uh, Mr. Hailey, I am holding
a copy of an indictment returned...
423
00:33:11,239 --> 00:33:14,742
by the grand jury of Mississippi
presenting that:
424
00:33:14,910 --> 00:33:19,622
"Carl Lee Hailey did murder Billy Ray Cobb,
a human being...
425
00:33:19,790 --> 00:33:22,625
and James Lewis Willard,
a human being...
426
00:33:22,793 --> 00:33:26,837
and did attempt to kill Dwayne Looney,
a peace officer...
427
00:33:27,005 --> 00:33:30,049
against the peace and dignity
of the state of Mississippi."
428
00:33:30,467 --> 00:33:32,927
Now, do you understand
the charges against you?
429
00:33:33,387 --> 00:33:35,971
- Yes, sir.
- How do you wish to plead?
430
00:33:38,600 --> 00:33:39,850
Not guilty, Your Honor.
431
00:33:41,061 --> 00:33:44,480
The defense enters a plea of not guilty
by reason of insanity, Your Honor.
432
00:33:44,648 --> 00:33:46,649
Your trial is set for July 22.
433
00:33:46,817 --> 00:33:51,112

All pretrial motions and matters


should be filed no later than July 8.
434
00:33:51,279 --> 00:33:52,738
- Is there anything further?
- Yes.
435
00:33:52,906 --> 00:33:55,032
Your Honor,
in response to the insanity plea...
436
00:33:55,200 --> 00:33:58,285
the state requests the defendant
be examined by its own doctors.
437
00:33:58,453 --> 00:33:59,453
Request granted.
438
00:33:59,621 --> 00:34:02,748
Additionally,
the state opposes any request for bail.
439
00:34:02,916 --> 00:34:04,834
Your Honor,
we haven t yet asked for bail.
440
00:34:05,001 --> 00:34:07,962
Now, Governor Buckley cannot oppose
a request until one is made.
441
00:34:08,130 --> 00:34:10,005
He should ve learned that in law school.
442
00:34:10,173 --> 00:34:13,759
Your Honor, even Mr. Brigance s
meager legal experience...
443
00:34:13,927 --> 00:34:18,097
should ve taught him two things.
One, I have not been elected governor yet.
444
00:34:18,265 --> 00:34:21,142
And number two,
he is required to request bail.
445
00:34:21,309 --> 00:34:22,935
The state opposes any such request.

446
00:34:23,103 --> 00:34:26,480
In the future, why don t we just wait
till he makes the request, huh?
447
00:34:26,732 --> 00:34:27,940
Thank you, Your Honor.
448
00:34:28,108 --> 00:34:30,651
- Your Honor, we would like to request bail.
- Denied.
449
00:34:31,778 --> 00:34:34,196
I have never allowed bail
in a capital-murder case...
450
00:34:34,364 --> 00:34:37,700
and don t feel
that an exception is called for today.
451
00:34:37,868 --> 00:34:38,993
Good enough.
452
00:34:39,161 --> 00:34:41,245
We will be filing for a change of venue.
453
00:34:41,413 --> 00:34:42,830
I anticipated this.
454
00:34:42,998 --> 00:34:45,583
Let me save you some time,
Mr. Brigance.
455
00:34:45,751 --> 00:34:47,251
Your motion is denied.
456
00:34:47,419 --> 00:34:49,336
Your Honor, we have not yet filed.
457
00:34:49,504 --> 00:34:53,382
We are simply indicating our intent
to file in writing by letting you...
458
00:34:53,550 --> 00:34:55,843
I said, request denied.
459
00:34:56,553 --> 00:34:57,928

Your Honor...
460
00:34:58,096 --> 00:35:01,307
how can you summarily deny
this request?
461
00:35:01,475 --> 00:35:04,810
It is quite clear that Carl Lee Hailey
cannot receive a fair trial here.
462
00:35:04,978 --> 00:35:07,438
- Now, we feel...
- That s enough. Sidebar.
463
00:35:07,606 --> 00:35:09,023
Your Honor, we have a right...
464
00:35:09,191 --> 00:35:12,067
Mr. Brigance.
465
00:35:12,235 --> 00:35:15,780
I will not tolerate grandstanding
in my courtroom.
466
00:35:23,789 --> 00:35:25,790
Get back to work.
467
00:35:26,625 --> 00:35:29,543
Excellent technique, counselor.
468
00:35:41,515 --> 00:35:42,556
Your Honor.
469
00:35:42,808 --> 00:35:46,393
We feel it would be remiss not to tell you
that in State v. Johnson...
470
00:35:46,561 --> 00:35:48,187
and State v. Fisher...
471
00:35:48,355 --> 00:35:50,189
both in 1985...
472
00:35:50,357 --> 00:35:53,025
failure to properly consider
a change of venue...

473
00:35:53,193 --> 00:35:56,612
has been a reversible decision on appeal
to the state supreme court.
474
00:35:58,073 --> 00:36:02,952
No.... No trial judge
likes his rulings overturned.
475
00:36:03,119 --> 00:36:09,291
I guess you get to submit that brief after all.
Have it on my desk by Tuesday morning.
476
00:36:09,751 --> 00:36:12,419
Mr. Hailey, you are hereby ordered...
477
00:36:12,587 --> 00:36:17,675
to remain in custody of
the Madison County sheriff until trial.
478
00:36:17,843 --> 00:36:18,884
Dismissed.
479
00:36:28,395 --> 00:36:31,146
Find me that state doctor.
What s his name? Rodeheaver.
480
00:36:31,314 --> 00:36:33,107
Get him down here to interview Hailey.
481
00:36:33,275 --> 00:36:37,111
Since he s not able to afford a real one,
find who Brigance is using for a shrink.
482
00:36:37,279 --> 00:36:40,281
- I want him discredited.
- You want professional or personal dirt?
483
00:36:40,448 --> 00:36:42,950
I don t wanna know how.
Get me enough to shatter him.
484
00:36:43,118 --> 00:36:44,994
We can do that. Taylor.
485
00:36:50,292 --> 00:36:54,336
This is $900, Carl Lee.
We said a thousand down.

486
00:36:54,504 --> 00:36:56,797
My kids gotta eat.
487
00:36:57,632 --> 00:36:59,383
Mine too.
488
00:37:01,845 --> 00:37:03,637
All right, when do I get the rest?
489
00:37:04,097 --> 00:37:07,349
Them folks over at the bank,
they won t loan me no money on my house.
490
00:37:07,517 --> 00:37:11,896
Why not? Your house is almost paid for. You
borrowed on it before for Lester s trial.
491
00:37:12,063 --> 00:37:13,647
Said I wasn t in jail before.
492
00:37:13,815 --> 00:37:16,525
Said to Gwen, how am I gonna pay
sitting on death row?
493
00:37:16,860 --> 00:37:19,194
And I lost my job at the mill.
494
00:37:19,362 --> 00:37:20,529
They called Gwen.
495
00:37:20,697 --> 00:37:24,783
Worked 20 years,
I m out five days and they fired me.
496
00:37:27,162 --> 00:37:31,624
Carl Lee, I can t try
a capital-murder case for $900.
497
00:37:31,791 --> 00:37:33,584
Carl Lee, I need to live.
498
00:37:33,752 --> 00:37:35,502
Me too, Jake.
499
00:37:35,670 --> 00:37:37,254

I need to live too.


500
00:37:46,973 --> 00:37:48,807
Nice night.
501
00:37:54,356 --> 00:37:57,524
Finder of precedents,
mystery woman of the courthouse.
502
00:37:57,692 --> 00:38:00,653
Yup. Care for a beer?
503
00:38:03,406 --> 00:38:06,492
I assume that s the infamous
change-of-venue motion under your arm.
504
00:38:06,660 --> 00:38:08,327
Mm-hm.
505
00:38:08,495 --> 00:38:09,870
Ellen Roark. R-O-A-R-K.
506
00:38:10,038 --> 00:38:13,749
That s Roark in Boston,
but it seems to be Roark in Mississippi.
507
00:38:13,917 --> 00:38:16,210
- Boston, huh?
- Yup, I was born there.
508
00:38:16,378 --> 00:38:18,796
My father s the notorious Sheldon Roark.
509
00:38:18,964 --> 00:38:20,547
Attorney to the stars, yes.
510
00:38:20,715 --> 00:38:22,257
Duly impressed.
511
00:38:22,425 --> 00:38:25,511
What brings you to Mississippi, Roark?
Slumming?
512
00:38:25,679 --> 00:38:27,680
No, law school at Ole Miss.
513

00:38:27,847 --> 00:38:29,932


It s a.... It s a family tradition.
514
00:38:30,100 --> 00:38:34,228
Mom was a sweet little sorority girl there
till Dad... Till Dad married her.
515
00:38:34,396 --> 00:38:37,731
I married a sweet little sorority girl
from Ole Miss myself.
516
00:38:37,899 --> 00:38:41,151
- Well, they have an excellent selection.
- Yes, they do.
517
00:38:41,319 --> 00:38:43,153
Now, really, what brings you to Canton?
518
00:38:43,321 --> 00:38:45,906
I m not believing they don t have cars
to sit on on campus.
519
00:38:46,074 --> 00:38:47,449
Carl Lee Hailey.
520
00:38:49,995 --> 00:38:52,246
Really like to help you with the trial.
521
00:38:52,414 --> 00:38:54,289
Now, what makes you think I need help?
522
00:38:55,041 --> 00:38:57,292
You re trying one of the largest
murder cases...
523
00:38:57,460 --> 00:38:59,920
these parts have seen
and you work alone.
524
00:39:00,088 --> 00:39:02,339
You have no paralegals,
no clerks, researchers...
525
00:39:02,507 --> 00:39:04,466
nor can you afford to hire any...
526
00:39:04,634 --> 00:39:08,262

so if Noose doesn t accept


that motion under your arm...
527
00:39:08,430 --> 00:39:13,017
you go to trial in less than a month.
Trust me, you need help.
528
00:39:13,184 --> 00:39:16,937
- Now, how do you know this?
- Well, I m an excellent researcher.
529
00:39:17,105 --> 00:39:19,148
- I see that.
- Look, I ve played gofer...
530
00:39:19,315 --> 00:39:22,109
for 7 capital-murder cases,
I ve witnessed 2 executions...
531
00:39:22,277 --> 00:39:26,488
I have written briefs for the ACLU,
I m top 5 percent of my class...
532
00:39:26,656 --> 00:39:30,117
editor of the law review,
I m published, I m young.
533
00:39:30,285 --> 00:39:31,410
And when I graduate...
534
00:39:31,578 --> 00:39:35,873
I intend to spend a glorious career
stomping out the death penalty.
535
00:39:36,499 --> 00:39:39,752
Let s see, what else?
Oh, genius runs in my family.
536
00:39:39,919 --> 00:39:41,295
You ll get me on the way up...
537
00:39:41,463 --> 00:39:45,215
and I really think, you know,
now is a good time to, you know, grab me.
538
00:39:45,383 --> 00:39:48,093
Mm-hm.
Is there anything else I should know?

539
00:39:48,261 --> 00:39:50,471
Uh, let s see, anything else?
540
00:39:50,638 --> 00:39:53,098
Oh, my father s filthy rich,
so I ll work for free.
541
00:39:55,393 --> 00:39:56,643
What do you think?
542
00:39:59,814 --> 00:40:02,649
I think I ll drop this brief off
in Noose s night slot.
543
00:40:03,234 --> 00:40:04,985
Go home and see my family.
544
00:40:05,153 --> 00:40:08,822
Thank you, Roark,
but I can handle the case myself.
545
00:40:10,992 --> 00:40:12,618
Uh....
546
00:40:12,786 --> 00:40:14,912
You might wanna
look at these precedents.
547
00:40:15,080 --> 00:40:17,623
Look at State v. Cooper
and State v. Roundtree.
548
00:40:17,791 --> 00:40:20,209
Both revenge killers, both acquitted.
549
00:40:23,505 --> 00:40:25,130
You ll change your mind.
550
00:40:27,300 --> 00:40:28,884
See you.
551
00:40:35,266 --> 00:40:37,684
Get out. Come on.
552
00:40:40,021 --> 00:40:41,021

Wait.
553
00:40:41,189 --> 00:40:42,731
Come on.
554
00:41:04,838 --> 00:41:10,008
Mr. Cobb, this is Stump Sisson,
grand dragon of Mississippi.
555
00:41:11,678 --> 00:41:14,012
He heard you were looking to see us.
556
00:41:14,889 --> 00:41:17,599
You were right to call us, Mr. Cobb.
557
00:41:18,726 --> 00:41:21,061
They say the Klan is dead.
558
00:41:22,647 --> 00:41:27,651
Klan don t show up for a few years
and people say the Klan is dead.
559
00:41:28,069 --> 00:41:30,779
Fact is, it just looks dead.
560
00:41:30,947 --> 00:41:34,158
The Klan has always been right there...
561
00:41:34,325 --> 00:41:36,493
under the surface.
562
00:41:37,328 --> 00:41:41,874
Just waiting for the opportunity
to deliver God s justice.
563
00:41:42,917 --> 00:41:44,251
I wanna help.
564
00:41:44,419 --> 00:41:46,420
I wanna kill that nigger.
565
00:41:46,588 --> 00:41:50,299
Niggers got plenty
of protection nowadays.
566
00:41:51,134 --> 00:41:55,596

They got the NAACP and the ACLU.


567
00:41:55,763 --> 00:41:58,098
Even the federal government.
568
00:41:58,266 --> 00:41:59,892
Hell.
569
00:42:00,101 --> 00:42:02,978
White folks ain t got a chance.
570
00:42:04,022 --> 00:42:06,064
Except the Klan.
571
00:42:09,986 --> 00:42:11,570
I m gonna tell you what.
572
00:42:13,489 --> 00:42:16,992
You get five or six of your friends
of similar thinking...
573
00:42:17,160 --> 00:42:21,455
and we ll initiate
the Madison County Klavern.
574
00:42:22,874 --> 00:42:24,791
Even make you leader.
575
00:42:27,253 --> 00:42:29,046
Now, you tell me...
576
00:42:29,380 --> 00:42:30,964
who s that nigger s lawyer?
577
00:42:32,008 --> 00:42:33,217
Local boy.
578
00:42:33,384 --> 00:42:36,678
His name s Brigance.
He s got a pretty good reputation.
579
00:42:38,765 --> 00:42:40,098
He got family?
580
00:42:40,266 --> 00:42:44,019
Yes, sir. He....

He has a wife and a daughter.


581
00:42:46,981 --> 00:42:48,357
Good.
582
00:43:08,127 --> 00:43:09,878
Two, two.
583
00:43:29,899 --> 00:43:32,234
- What the hell is he doing here?
- Now, calm down.
584
00:43:32,402 --> 00:43:34,069
- No.
- Come on, calm down.
585
00:43:34,237 --> 00:43:38,115
- Calm down.
- He has no right after what he did.
586
00:43:38,283 --> 00:43:40,075
No, he s got no right, sheriff.
587
00:43:40,243 --> 00:43:42,661
Don t get your mom upset now.
588
00:43:56,050 --> 00:43:57,759
Looney?
589
00:43:58,761 --> 00:44:00,012
Dwayne?
590
00:44:04,600 --> 00:44:07,394
I made Ozzie bring me.
591
00:44:12,108 --> 00:44:14,026
Shit, Dwayne, we...
592
00:44:14,193 --> 00:44:16,236
We known each other
since we was kids.
593
00:44:21,534 --> 00:44:22,909
It s my fault.
594
00:44:24,037 --> 00:44:25,746

No matter what gets said in court...


595
00:44:27,206 --> 00:44:31,501
I knew what I was doing,
and I sure didn t intend to hurt you...
596
00:44:31,669 --> 00:44:33,086
but just them two boys.
597
00:44:38,593 --> 00:44:41,636
I know it don t mean much now...
598
00:44:42,680 --> 00:44:43,889
but I m sorry.
599
00:44:52,023 --> 00:44:55,650
Some folks think that a black man
cannot receive a fair trial in the South.
600
00:44:56,110 --> 00:45:00,113
I intend to show the men and women of the
South will look past color and see truth.
601
00:45:00,281 --> 00:45:01,948
It sure is a nigger s world.
602
00:45:02,116 --> 00:45:03,575
Not for long.
603
00:45:05,787 --> 00:45:10,123
Boys, I am very proud
to invite you to become soldiers...
604
00:45:10,291 --> 00:45:13,293
in the war to protect
our Christian homes and families.
605
00:45:13,461 --> 00:45:18,256
To resurrect our country
from the fires of racial degradation.
606
00:45:18,424 --> 00:45:24,179
And to make white people
the sole masters of our nation s destiny.
607
00:45:24,639 --> 00:45:26,932
What I m saying, fellas...

608
00:45:27,642 --> 00:45:29,601
it s time for the nigger to pay.
609
00:45:32,647 --> 00:45:36,691
- Something wrong with your telephone?
- No, we just had the number changed.
610
00:45:36,859 --> 00:45:38,568
That s what the operator said.
611
00:45:38,736 --> 00:45:40,862
- To an unlisted number.
- Yeah.
612
00:45:41,030 --> 00:45:43,156
I m sorry you had to
come all the way up here.
613
00:45:43,324 --> 00:45:45,158
I should ve called you, but this case...
614
00:45:45,326 --> 00:45:49,079
This case has us all worried sick
about you all, Jake.
615
00:45:49,247 --> 00:45:52,999
And you know this thing could get ugly.
And dangerous.
616
00:45:53,167 --> 00:45:56,461
Jake, he shot them in cold blood.
617
00:45:56,629 --> 00:46:00,590
They raped and almost murdered
his daughter, Sarah.
618
00:46:00,758 --> 00:46:02,884
What if the same thing
happened to Hannah?
619
00:46:03,052 --> 00:46:06,304
Brigance! Mr. Brigance! Mr. Brigance!
620
00:46:06,472 --> 00:46:09,099
- May we ask a few questions?
- Can we get a quote?

621
00:46:09,267 --> 00:46:10,851
- Mr. Brigance.
- Excuse me a second.
622
00:46:11,018 --> 00:46:13,019
I m going to go take a few questions.
623
00:46:13,187 --> 00:46:16,064
- Jake, this isn t the time.
- This is really good for Carl Lee.
624
00:46:16,232 --> 00:46:17,858
I ll be right back.
625
00:46:19,235 --> 00:46:20,986
Thank y all for coming.
626
00:46:25,867 --> 00:46:29,035
I guess we ll have to read about it
in the papers.
627
00:47:26,177 --> 00:47:27,385
Praise Jesus!
628
00:47:43,110 --> 00:47:45,654
- Reverend Agee?
- Yes.
629
00:47:45,821 --> 00:47:47,322
I m Isaiah Street.
630
00:47:47,490 --> 00:47:50,116
Well, it s an honor to meet you,
Reverend.
631
00:47:50,284 --> 00:47:52,369
I saw you march with Dr. King.
632
00:47:52,537 --> 00:47:58,542
Well, well. The struggle continues today
here in Canton.
633
00:47:59,126 --> 00:48:01,419
Carl Lee Hailey s on trial
because he s black.

634
00:48:01,587 --> 00:48:02,879
No other reason.
635
00:48:04,131 --> 00:48:07,467
- These people are with the NAACP.
- Oh?
636
00:48:07,885 --> 00:48:09,886
- Reverend Agee.
- How do you do?
637
00:48:10,054 --> 00:48:11,137
How do you do?
638
00:48:11,472 --> 00:48:17,811
Reverend Agee, the black community s
concerned that Mr. Hailey s attorney...
639
00:48:17,979 --> 00:48:20,855
is not sensitive to the needs
of the movement.
640
00:48:21,816 --> 00:48:27,195
The NAACP wishes to provide him
with a new lawyer.
641
00:48:29,323 --> 00:48:33,743
We need to raise funds
to support Carl Lee Hailey.
642
00:48:34,829 --> 00:48:37,831
I don t know, Reverend.
Time s awfully tight here.
643
00:48:39,834 --> 00:48:44,045
Obviously, we would expect you
to take...
644
00:48:44,213 --> 00:48:48,216
a modest administration fee
for your troubles.
645
00:49:14,368 --> 00:49:20,832
Your loyalty has been forged
in a baptism of fire.
646
00:49:21,959 --> 00:49:26,379

Rise, knights of the Ku Klux Klan...


647
00:49:27,006 --> 00:49:31,676
and let your brethren never regret...
648
00:49:32,720 --> 00:49:37,891
they believed you worthy of fellowship.
649
00:49:43,230 --> 00:49:45,357
Welcome to the Klan.
650
00:49:57,328 --> 00:49:59,120
I need to talk to Jake Brigance.
651
00:49:59,288 --> 00:50:01,581
He s not in. May I ask who s calling?
652
00:50:02,166 --> 00:50:05,085
Uh, well...
653
00:50:05,294 --> 00:50:06,336
Mickey Mouse.
654
00:50:06,796 --> 00:50:08,713
- Who?
- Mickey Mouse.
655
00:50:09,507 --> 00:50:11,591
Get out right now.
656
00:50:11,759 --> 00:50:12,759
Who is this?
657
00:50:12,927 --> 00:50:15,679
Get your daughter
out of the house right now.
658
00:50:16,847 --> 00:50:18,223
Mommy!
659
00:50:18,391 --> 00:50:20,433
- Hannah?
- Mommy!
660
00:50:20,601 --> 00:50:24,020
Hannah? What is it? Oh, my God!

661
00:50:24,188 --> 00:50:26,481
Max! Max, come on!
662
00:50:26,649 --> 00:50:28,024
Fire! Aah!
663
00:50:36,033 --> 00:50:39,369
It s a good thing Hastings
was nearby and got here fast.
664
00:50:39,537 --> 00:50:41,955
The whole place could ve burned down.
665
00:50:42,123 --> 00:50:44,708
- Yeah, I appreciate it.
- Take care, man.
666
00:50:44,875 --> 00:50:46,835
See you in the morning.
667
00:50:53,300 --> 00:50:55,301
She asleep, baby?
668
00:50:56,637 --> 00:50:59,889
The Ku Klux Klan
is burning crosses on our lawn, Jake.
669
00:51:00,057 --> 00:51:03,143
Baby, there s been
no Klan around here for years, okay?
670
00:51:03,310 --> 00:51:07,147
This is just a couple of dorks with too much
time on their hands and too many beers.
671
00:51:11,694 --> 00:51:13,945
- I m sorry.
- About what?
672
00:51:15,489 --> 00:51:19,117
That you weren t home when someone
practically burned our house down?
673
00:51:19,285 --> 00:51:21,911
That you missed supper
and didn t even bother to call?

674
00:51:22,079 --> 00:51:25,165
That lately you ve become more
interested in getting on the news...
675
00:51:25,332 --> 00:51:27,208
than what s going on with your family?
676
00:51:27,376 --> 00:51:31,212
Or that Hannah comes home bawling
because of kids calling her a nigger-lover?
677
00:51:31,380 --> 00:51:34,466
What exactly are you sorry about, Jake?
678
00:51:42,850 --> 00:51:44,893
Remember the other night?
679
00:51:46,604 --> 00:51:49,147
I told you Carl Lee came by the office?
680
00:51:49,315 --> 00:51:51,691
Remember what we talked about then?
681
00:51:52,151 --> 00:51:54,152
About me calling Ozzie?
682
00:51:57,239 --> 00:51:59,949
You never called him, did you?
683
00:52:00,951 --> 00:52:02,410
You never called Sheriff Walls?
684
00:52:03,412 --> 00:52:05,205
I didn t call him, baby.
685
00:52:06,415 --> 00:52:10,251
Lord have mercy, Jake,
you had a responsibility.
686
00:52:10,419 --> 00:52:12,378
Carl Lee chose you.
687
00:52:12,546 --> 00:52:15,715
He told you what he was thinking.

688
00:52:15,883 --> 00:52:18,301
He told me what he was thinking,
but I didn t know...
689
00:52:18,469 --> 00:52:22,764
Jake Tyler Brigance,
we agreed, you were gonna call the sheriff.
690
00:52:22,932 --> 00:52:25,350
Now look at everything
that has happened.
691
00:52:26,060 --> 00:52:29,896
I am sorry to tell you this, darling,
but those two boys are in the ground...
692
00:52:30,064 --> 00:52:33,066
and you were in a position
to prevent every bit of this.
693
00:52:33,234 --> 00:52:34,484
Mama?
694
00:52:35,945 --> 00:52:37,487
Are you and Daddy fighting?
695
00:52:39,031 --> 00:52:42,742
No, baby. Come here.
Come here, baby. Come here.
696
00:52:43,702 --> 00:52:47,288
Mommy s just upset because some silly
man played a real bad joke, okay?
697
00:52:47,456 --> 00:52:49,415
There s nothing to worry about.
698
00:52:49,834 --> 00:52:52,877
Nothing at all, okay?
699
00:52:58,509 --> 00:53:00,510
What that Memphis doctor say about her?
700
00:53:01,762 --> 00:53:03,388
She s doing good.
701

00:53:04,390 --> 00:53:05,932


Her jaw is healing.
702
00:53:06,100 --> 00:53:09,811
She can t run and jump yet,
but it won t be long.
703
00:53:11,105 --> 00:53:12,772
How about the other?
704
00:53:20,823 --> 00:53:23,658
There was too much damage.
705
00:53:24,827 --> 00:53:26,661
She ain t gonna never have kids.
706
00:53:35,129 --> 00:53:37,463
You know, I think about them two boys.
707
00:53:37,631 --> 00:53:39,215
Dead, buried...
708
00:53:39,383 --> 00:53:41,843
probably starting to rot.
709
00:53:42,469 --> 00:53:45,305
And I remember them walking in court...
710
00:53:45,472 --> 00:53:47,390
one proud, the other scared.
711
00:53:49,018 --> 00:53:51,102
I remember how they fell.
712
00:53:51,270 --> 00:53:56,316
One on top of the other, and screaming
and squirming and not going nowhere.
713
00:53:58,193 --> 00:54:00,862
God help me, Gwen, but...
714
00:54:02,573 --> 00:54:04,866
that s the only thought
gives me comfort.
715
00:54:08,203 --> 00:54:11,289

They took up a collection for us


at church Sunday night.
716
00:54:12,041 --> 00:54:14,375
Some kind of defense fund.
717
00:54:15,127 --> 00:54:17,712
Reverend Agee gave a good service.
718
00:54:21,008 --> 00:54:27,347
We need some money around the house,
Carl Lee, for groceries and bills.
719
00:54:27,514 --> 00:54:28,806
How much you got?
720
00:54:30,517 --> 00:54:31,684
Less than 50.
721
00:54:33,687 --> 00:54:35,146
I ll think of something.
722
00:54:38,776 --> 00:54:42,695
How you think you going to get
some money while you stuck here in jail?
723
00:54:42,863 --> 00:54:44,489
Trust me, Gwen.
724
00:54:49,662 --> 00:54:51,454
I just get scared.
725
00:54:53,374 --> 00:54:55,041
Look here.
726
00:54:55,376 --> 00:55:01,172
Tell me exactly what Reverend Agee said
when he passed around the collection plate.
727
00:55:01,340 --> 00:55:04,550
I don t care.
We are dealing with life and death here.
728
00:55:04,718 --> 00:55:08,680
- I m gonna have to talk to my supervisor.
- Well, you go talk. Get out of here.

729
00:55:08,847 --> 00:55:11,599
Morning, John.
How are things at the electric company?
730
00:55:11,767 --> 00:55:15,687
The electric company. That is the second
time this week I ve had to hold him off.
731
00:55:15,854 --> 00:55:17,689
- How much do we owe?
- Two thousand dollars.
732
00:55:17,856 --> 00:55:20,817
- How much do we have?
- One hundred dollars.
733
00:55:20,985 --> 00:55:24,112
Now, look, this week nothing,
nothing has come in at all. Look.
734
00:55:24,279 --> 00:55:27,198
What about Buck Britt s retainer?
There s 2 grand.
735
00:55:27,366 --> 00:55:30,576
- That check bounced.
- What do you mean, bounced?
736
00:55:30,744 --> 00:55:32,495
It bounced, Jake.
737
00:55:32,663 --> 00:55:35,248
It s been sitting on your desk for a week.
738
00:55:35,416 --> 00:55:37,458
Not that you d notice.
739
00:55:39,169 --> 00:55:42,672
Since you took this case, you...
You stopped talking to your clients...
740
00:55:42,840 --> 00:55:44,632
you don t take your calls, you...
741
00:55:44,800 --> 00:55:48,678
You re obsessed. That s what you are.
You re obsessed, Jake.

742
00:55:49,179 --> 00:55:52,265
- Boy, your obsession is going to break us.
- Hey, hey, hey.
743
00:55:52,433 --> 00:55:55,101
What s wrong, girl?
We ve been through hard times before.
744
00:55:55,269 --> 00:55:57,186
Oh, not like this, Jake.
745
00:55:57,354 --> 00:55:59,439
Not like this.
746
00:56:00,357 --> 00:56:02,358
We ve been getting calls.
747
00:56:02,526 --> 00:56:03,693
At home.
748
00:56:03,861 --> 00:56:05,069
Threats.
749
00:56:06,447 --> 00:56:10,742
You know Bud has survived two strokes.
I don t think he would survive a third.
750
00:56:10,909 --> 00:56:12,118
Why didn t you tell me?
751
00:56:13,579 --> 00:56:15,455
Why, Jake?
752
00:56:15,622 --> 00:56:16,998
Would you drop the case?
753
00:56:22,838 --> 00:56:24,047
Jake Brigance s office.
754
00:56:24,214 --> 00:56:26,799
Until they cut the phones off.
755
00:56:27,634 --> 00:56:29,093
Oh, right.

756
00:56:29,845 --> 00:56:31,054
Okay.
757
00:56:31,221 --> 00:56:34,098
Right. That was Sheriff Walls.
758
00:56:34,266 --> 00:56:36,225
You better get down to that jail.
759
00:56:43,650 --> 00:56:45,818
What s going on here, Carl Lee?
760
00:56:45,986 --> 00:56:48,071
- I m Isaiah Street.
- Jake Brigance.
761
00:56:48,238 --> 00:56:50,406
Uh-huh. Uh....
762
00:56:50,574 --> 00:56:52,658
- I believe you know Reverend Agee.
- Jake.
763
00:56:52,826 --> 00:56:54,994
- And this is...
- Norman Reinfield.
764
00:56:55,162 --> 00:56:57,413
I ve seen your picture in the paper.
765
00:56:58,290 --> 00:57:01,000
I assume these boys carry your briefcase.
766
00:57:01,168 --> 00:57:03,836
Just a small part
of my legal defense team.
767
00:57:04,004 --> 00:57:05,379
Pleasure, Mr. Brigance.
768
00:57:05,547 --> 00:57:06,672
Mm-hm.
769
00:57:06,840 --> 00:57:09,217
If this is a party, boys,
where s the chips and beer?

770
00:57:09,676 --> 00:57:13,888
Otherwise, you being here seems a bit
like illegal client solicitation.
771
00:57:14,056 --> 00:57:16,182
With Carl Lee already
having a lawyer and all.
772
00:57:16,350 --> 00:57:18,101
Well, now, just a minute, Jake.
773
00:57:18,268 --> 00:57:20,269
Carl Lee invited us here.
774
00:57:22,481 --> 00:57:24,357
Mr. Brigance...
775
00:57:24,525 --> 00:57:26,818
let me be frank.
776
00:57:26,985 --> 00:57:30,363
Mr. Hailey s case
has far-reaching ramifications.
777
00:57:30,864 --> 00:57:33,199
Carl Lee s acquittal
for the killings of two white men...
778
00:57:33,367 --> 00:57:35,701
would do more
for black people in Mississippi...
779
00:57:35,869 --> 00:57:39,247
than any event since
we integrated the schools.
780
00:57:39,414 --> 00:57:42,583
His conviction, on the other hand,
will be a slap at us.
781
00:57:42,751 --> 00:57:44,877
A symbol of deep-seated racism.
782
00:57:45,045 --> 00:57:47,296
Perhaps enough to ignite a nation.

783
00:57:47,714 --> 00:57:49,882
See how important this case is?
784
00:57:50,050 --> 00:57:52,593
Enter Mr. Reinfield s death squad, right?
785
00:57:52,761 --> 00:57:56,639
It s an unfortunate nickname,
but apropos.
786
00:57:56,807 --> 00:58:00,226
My lawyers and I handle
only capital-murder cases, Mr. Hailey.
787
00:58:00,394 --> 00:58:03,729
Yeah, and of all your cases, Norman,
how many are supposed to be lost...
788
00:58:03,897 --> 00:58:06,524
- ...so you can martyr the victim?
- Now, Mr. Brigance.
789
00:58:06,692 --> 00:58:11,571
How much a defense like that cost?
790
00:58:12,614 --> 00:58:14,157
Yeah.
791
00:58:15,033 --> 00:58:16,617
Would you say about 100,000?
792
00:58:16,785 --> 00:58:20,830
We are prepared to accept
7000 in litigation expenses.
793
00:58:20,998 --> 00:58:24,750
Well, Carl Lee doesn t have $7000.
794
00:58:24,918 --> 00:58:25,960
Do you, Carl Lee?
795
00:58:26,503 --> 00:58:32,091
The NAACP has raised $5000
for Carl Lee s legal defense fund.
796
00:58:32,259 --> 00:58:35,428

And we raised an additional


$2000 from the local churches.
797
00:58:35,596 --> 00:58:37,263
Let me ask you something, Reverend.
798
00:58:37,681 --> 00:58:40,641
How much of that cash
you offer my wife and kids?
799
00:58:40,809 --> 00:58:44,896
Well, that money is to go to pay
for lawyers fees and stuff like that.
800
00:58:45,063 --> 00:58:47,190
That ain t what you told the church,
now, is it?
801
00:58:47,983 --> 00:58:49,859
You almost cried when you told them...
802
00:58:50,027 --> 00:58:54,238
how my family might starve if they
didn t donate all they could, didn t you?
803
00:58:54,948 --> 00:58:57,658
Well, the money is for you
and your family, Carl Lee...
804
00:58:57,826 --> 00:59:00,786
but we thought it d be better spent
on your legal defense.
805
00:59:00,954 --> 00:59:03,623
Well, speaking of that defense fund...
806
00:59:03,790 --> 00:59:06,292
can I use that for any lawyer I want?
807
00:59:06,460 --> 00:59:09,295
Well, it s not that simple, Carl Lee.
808
00:59:09,463 --> 00:59:12,340
Actually, it is that simple, Carl Lee.
809
00:59:12,507 --> 00:59:17,220
Unless the NAACP wants to go on record

as soliciting funds under false pretenses.


810
00:59:17,387 --> 00:59:20,598
Listen, Carl Lee, we raised that money...
811
00:59:20,766 --> 00:59:23,809
for these men to get you out of here,
not for this cracker to...
812
00:59:23,977 --> 00:59:27,855
Now, hey, hey, hey.
Hold on. Hold on right there, now.
813
00:59:28,315 --> 00:59:31,901
Let me just get this straight here,
Reverend.
814
00:59:34,488 --> 00:59:37,907
If you don t give my wife that cash...
815
00:59:38,075 --> 00:59:41,953
I m gonna see to it everybody in this
town knows you re a lying crook.
816
00:59:42,621 --> 00:59:45,164
I m sure your congregation
will be interested to know...
817
00:59:45,332 --> 00:59:48,542
Gwen and the kids can t eat
because you want in with the NAACP.
818
00:59:48,710 --> 00:59:51,963
That s right.
By the time I get through with you...
819
00:59:52,130 --> 00:59:56,008
you won t be able to collect 2 cents
in that collection plate on Sunday.
820
00:59:56,176 --> 01:00:00,346
We ll expect the check for the Hailey
family this afternoon, Reverend Agee.
821
01:00:01,306 --> 01:00:04,684
Reverend Street,
I sure do appreciate your fine work...

822
01:00:04,851 --> 01:00:07,061
but I m gonna take my chances
with Jake here.
823
01:00:09,231 --> 01:00:11,482
Thanks for coming down, Mr. Reinfield.
824
01:00:12,317 --> 01:00:15,820
Uh, and we ll be expecting that check
for Jake s legal services...
825
01:00:15,988 --> 01:00:17,989
around the same time this afternoon.
826
01:00:22,119 --> 01:00:23,828
Good day, men.
827
01:00:30,627 --> 01:00:32,378
Go.
828
01:00:35,882 --> 01:00:37,383
Go.
829
01:00:38,093 --> 01:00:39,677
Good.
830
01:00:41,972 --> 01:00:44,056
You set that whole thing up, didn t you?
831
01:00:44,224 --> 01:00:46,100
Couldn t have did it without you, Jake.
832
01:00:48,645 --> 01:00:50,521
Make one hell of a team, Carl Lee.
833
01:00:51,315 --> 01:00:54,400
You out there, Jake. I m in here.
834
01:00:54,568 --> 01:00:55,901
We ain t no team.
835
01:01:20,594 --> 01:01:22,219
There s trouble.
836
01:01:23,764 --> 01:01:25,598

Oh, lookie there.


837
01:01:30,854 --> 01:01:32,646
No, here s trouble, Harry Rex.
838
01:01:41,406 --> 01:01:43,157
Hi. You are...?
839
01:01:43,325 --> 01:01:45,034
Roark, meet Mr. Harry Rex Vonner...
840
01:01:45,202 --> 01:01:48,788
the most effective, connected,
morally compromised lawyer in the country.
841
01:01:48,955 --> 01:01:52,249
- Oh. Ellen Roark, brilliant law student.
- Do with me as you will.
842
01:01:52,417 --> 01:01:54,460
- Looking forward to it.
- Okay.
843
01:01:54,961 --> 01:01:57,797
Um, well,
thought this might interest you.
844
01:01:57,964 --> 01:02:02,343
In all murder trials, it seems the insanity
plea only makes up 1 percent overall.
845
01:02:02,511 --> 01:02:05,179
And of the 1 percent of that
that resulted in acquittal...
846
01:02:05,347 --> 01:02:07,306
success rested almost wholly on the...
847
01:02:07,474 --> 01:02:11,852
On the defending psychiatrist regardless of
the quality of the psychological testimony.
848
01:02:12,020 --> 01:02:13,562
- Yeah.
- Shazam.
849
01:02:13,730 --> 01:02:14,772

She is brilliant.
850
01:02:14,940 --> 01:02:17,024
"She." That would be me?
851
01:02:17,192 --> 01:02:19,485
- Now, who else would she be?
- So she would be me.
852
01:02:19,653 --> 01:02:22,363
She is saying that
if I take this plea to trial...
853
01:02:22,531 --> 01:02:26,158
the verdict is going to hinge on whose
shrink the jury finds more credible.
854
01:02:26,660 --> 01:02:28,077
She would be correct.
855
01:02:28,662 --> 01:02:30,079
She would.
856
01:02:30,789 --> 01:02:32,706
So are you sure you don t need any help?
857
01:02:32,874 --> 01:02:36,335
I do. I m hiring. Right now. Me.
858
01:02:36,837 --> 01:02:40,923
Roark, I am sure that I don t need any help.
Thank you, though.
859
01:02:41,091 --> 01:02:43,008
Okay.
860
01:02:43,176 --> 01:02:46,429
I guess that would just have
to be your loss, then, huh?
861
01:02:48,223 --> 01:02:50,599
Nice to meet you, Morally Compromised.
862
01:02:50,767 --> 01:02:51,976
Pleasure s all mine.
863

01:02:52,144 --> 01:02:53,686


She.
864
01:02:57,149 --> 01:03:00,609
Got to love the Lord
for making things like that.
865
01:03:00,777 --> 01:03:03,362
Sure you don t wanna at least
take a peak at her rsum?
866
01:03:03,530 --> 01:03:05,823
Not like you couldn t use the help.
867
01:03:05,991 --> 01:03:10,035
No, I don t want to look at her rsum,
Harry Rex, because I have you.
868
01:03:10,203 --> 01:03:12,288
- You do?
- Yeah, buddy.
869
01:03:12,456 --> 01:03:15,833
This is your chance to put aside
your shady sources, back-alley deals...
870
01:03:16,001 --> 01:03:19,545
your greedy divorces,
and do some real law for a change.
871
01:03:21,339 --> 01:03:23,090
Mr. Vonner, in short...
872
01:03:23,258 --> 01:03:26,886
you now have the opportunity
to work on a case that matters.
873
01:03:27,721 --> 01:03:29,096
Let me get this straight.
874
01:03:29,264 --> 01:03:33,893
You want me to put aside my empty,
soulless, shady...
875
01:03:34,060 --> 01:03:36,687
astonishingly lucrative,
divorce practice...

876
01:03:36,855 --> 01:03:40,900
come work with you on an unwinnable,
bleeding-heart, lose-all-my-friends...
877
01:03:41,067 --> 01:03:43,569
straight-to-the-gas-chamber case
because it matters?
878
01:03:43,737 --> 01:03:45,070
That is a novel idea, I know.
879
01:03:45,238 --> 01:03:47,490
No way, never,
presumptuous little shit.
880
01:03:50,243 --> 01:03:51,577
Good night, y all.
881
01:03:56,500 --> 01:03:58,709
- Hello?
- I need the sheriff.
882
01:03:58,877 --> 01:04:02,213
- He s sleeping now.
- Well, get him up.
883
01:04:02,380 --> 01:04:06,091
- Who is this?
- Someone s gonna die tonight.
884
01:04:28,698 --> 01:04:30,991
- Unh!
- I got him!
885
01:04:31,826 --> 01:04:34,119
- Get his ass, Ozzie!
- What s in the case?
886
01:04:44,339 --> 01:04:46,590
- This thing s ticking.
- What s in the case?
887
01:04:46,800 --> 01:04:49,093
I ain t saying, nigger.
888
01:04:53,098 --> 01:04:55,182
- Family out of the house?

- Yeah.
889
01:04:57,018 --> 01:04:58,269
It s locked.
890
01:05:03,191 --> 01:05:04,483
Now I want you to open that.
891
01:05:17,330 --> 01:05:18,372
Oh, man....
892
01:05:20,750 --> 01:05:21,792
Defuse it.
893
01:05:22,335 --> 01:05:26,839
I m gonna take you
and this nigger-lover to hell with...
894
01:05:28,008 --> 01:05:31,176
Ain t nothing more dangerous
in this world than a fool with a cause.
895
01:05:31,344 --> 01:05:34,263
Lay that thing back down there.
Let s get the hell out of here.
896
01:05:34,431 --> 01:05:36,682
Carla loves this house.
897
01:05:55,869 --> 01:05:58,537
- How you doing, Stan?
- Hey, how you doing?
898
01:05:59,456 --> 01:06:00,497
Come here, girl.
899
01:06:01,708 --> 01:06:03,584
Mwah.
900
01:06:04,336 --> 01:06:06,712
Daddy, are you coming to Grandpa s too?
901
01:06:06,880 --> 01:06:09,882
Mm-mm. Not this time, baby.
Daddy s gotta stay here and work.
902

01:06:10,050 --> 01:06:11,967


You and your mama
have a good time, okay?
903
01:06:12,135 --> 01:06:14,595
- All right.
- All right. You be good.
904
01:06:14,929 --> 01:06:16,263
Go get your stuff down there.
905
01:06:17,515 --> 01:06:19,808
You said you d withdraw
if it got too dangerous.
906
01:06:19,976 --> 01:06:21,060
I know.
907
01:06:21,227 --> 01:06:23,771
But I can t quit now, you know that.
908
01:06:24,314 --> 01:06:27,941
Carl Lee Hailey s facing the gas chamber,
baby. The man is counting on me.
909
01:06:28,985 --> 01:06:31,195
I understand that, Jake.
910
01:06:31,363 --> 01:06:33,864
I want you to remember
that we re counting on you too.
911
01:06:34,032 --> 01:06:36,367
What if something happens to you?
912
01:06:36,534 --> 01:06:39,411
Nothing s gonna happen to me, baby.
Come here.
913
01:06:39,871 --> 01:06:41,580
Give me a hug? Hmm?
914
01:06:42,290 --> 01:06:43,791
Everything s gonna be all right.
915
01:06:43,958 --> 01:06:46,669
I m gonna be fine,

you re gonna be fine. Okay?


916
01:06:46,836 --> 01:06:48,504
Okay, babe?
917
01:06:49,714 --> 01:06:50,756
I promise.
918
01:06:53,051 --> 01:06:56,261
Watch you don t make your wife promises
you can t keep.
919
01:06:58,765 --> 01:07:00,099
Hannah?
920
01:07:00,266 --> 01:07:01,934
- You ready?
Uh-huh.
921
01:07:02,102 --> 01:07:04,645
Last boarding call.
922
01:07:14,614 --> 01:07:16,073
- Good afternoon.
- Good afternoon.
923
01:07:16,241 --> 01:07:17,950
Come in.
924
01:07:18,493 --> 01:07:19,952
- Good afternoon.
- Good afternoon.
925
01:07:20,120 --> 01:07:22,538
You may come this way.
The judge is upstairs.
926
01:07:22,706 --> 01:07:24,373
Thank you, sir.
927
01:07:32,882 --> 01:07:34,466
Judge Noose.
928
01:07:35,635 --> 01:07:37,636
Thanks for coming.
929

01:07:39,097 --> 01:07:41,849


- Heard you had a little trouble last night.
- Yes, sir.
930
01:07:42,016 --> 01:07:45,060
Makes you wonder about
the sensibleness of taking this case.
931
01:07:45,228 --> 01:07:48,439
This is a beautiful place
you have here, judge.
932
01:07:48,606 --> 01:07:50,149
I ll get to the point.
933
01:07:50,316 --> 01:07:56,155
I ve thoroughly reviewed
your brief request in that change of venue.
934
01:07:56,322 --> 01:08:01,410
And I agree with you. I think it s impossible
to find a fair and impartial jury in Canton.
935
01:08:01,578 --> 01:08:06,498
In fact, I think it s impossible to find a fair
and impartial jury anywhere in Mississippi.
936
01:08:06,666 --> 01:08:08,041
And as such...
937
01:08:08,209 --> 01:08:10,627
a jury here would be...
938
01:08:10,795 --> 01:08:13,756
as fair as a jury anywhere else.
939
01:08:13,923 --> 01:08:18,343
So I ve decided to deny your request
for a change of venue.
940
01:08:20,013 --> 01:08:21,638
Well, I guess that...
941
01:08:21,806 --> 01:08:23,390
gives me something to appeal.
942
01:08:23,558 --> 01:08:26,185

Uh, actually, no.


943
01:08:26,352 --> 01:08:28,687
I spoke to Judge Dent...
944
01:08:28,855 --> 01:08:33,025
and he led me to believe that the
supreme court would uphold my ruling.
945
01:08:34,360 --> 01:08:36,445
You certainly have
covered your bases, judge.
946
01:08:38,406 --> 01:08:42,117
Jake, you re a good lawyer.
947
01:08:42,786 --> 01:08:46,330
You re bright and ambitious. Talented.
You could be somebody around here.
948
01:08:46,498 --> 01:08:50,584
You sure you wanna be known
as the man that defended that murderer?
949
01:08:51,127 --> 01:08:53,587
Could be very unpopular.
950
01:08:54,339 --> 01:08:56,215
Talk to your client.
951
01:08:56,841 --> 01:08:58,217
He pleads guilty...
952
01:08:58,384 --> 01:09:00,928
I ll recommend Buckley
accept a plea of manslaughter.
953
01:09:01,095 --> 01:09:02,346
He d be out in 20.
954
01:09:03,139 --> 01:09:06,099
Yeah. And how s his wife supposed
to raise his family alone?
955
01:09:06,935 --> 01:09:08,602
Better than being a widow.

956
01:09:10,605 --> 01:09:12,231
Think about it.
957
01:09:12,398 --> 01:09:16,276
Why toss away a promising career, hmm?
958
01:09:19,113 --> 01:09:21,657
- Good day, judge.
- Thanks for coming.
959
01:09:26,246 --> 01:09:29,832
All right, Lucien.
Where the hell is this guy?
960
01:09:29,999 --> 01:09:31,917
Born alcoholic.
961
01:09:32,085 --> 01:09:34,670
But the man cannot hold his liquor.
962
01:09:34,838 --> 01:09:40,759
Jake, allow me to present
Dr. Willard Tyrell Bass.
963
01:09:40,927 --> 01:09:43,262
Expert witness for the defense.
964
01:09:43,429 --> 01:09:48,183
W.T., this is Jake Brigance, my protg.
965
01:09:52,772 --> 01:09:54,606
Dr. Bass.
966
01:09:58,903 --> 01:10:01,738
- Are you kidding me?
- No, relax.
967
01:10:01,906 --> 01:10:04,408
When he s sober, he s terrific.
968
01:10:05,285 --> 01:10:09,746
He has his license,
his credentials are impeccable.
969
01:10:13,585 --> 01:10:16,003
- Well?

- I need a drink.
970
01:10:16,170 --> 01:10:17,963
Three in the afternoon?
971
01:10:18,131 --> 01:10:21,925
- My, oh, my. What would your wife say?
- I am my own man, Lucien.
972
01:10:22,093 --> 01:10:24,469
- I drink when I want.
- When did she leave town?
973
01:10:24,637 --> 01:10:26,889
- This morning.
Ha-ha-ha.
974
01:10:45,700 --> 01:10:47,326
God! Unh!
975
01:10:51,748 --> 01:10:52,915
Bud?
976
01:10:59,505 --> 01:11:01,048
Oh, my...
977
01:11:02,300 --> 01:11:03,342
That s enough.
978
01:11:09,807 --> 01:11:11,516
Now, you tell your boss...
979
01:11:11,684 --> 01:11:14,603
next time people are gonna die.
980
01:11:18,358 --> 01:11:20,067
Oh, Bud.
981
01:11:21,152 --> 01:11:23,070
Oh, Bud.
982
01:11:46,719 --> 01:11:48,261
Hi.
983
01:11:48,429 --> 01:11:49,471
Morning.

984
01:11:53,226 --> 01:11:55,227
Nice parking job. Late night?
985
01:12:02,235 --> 01:12:04,820
- Yeah.
- Hmm.
986
01:12:04,988 --> 01:12:06,989
So, um, here.
987
01:12:07,156 --> 01:12:11,076
- Oh, thank you.
- Your wife lets you sleep at the office?
988
01:12:11,577 --> 01:12:13,286
My wife left town.
989
01:12:13,454 --> 01:12:15,580
That s too bad.
990
01:12:16,082 --> 01:12:19,918
So listen, I heard that Judge Noose
turned down your change of venue.
991
01:12:20,336 --> 01:12:22,004
Yeah.
992
01:12:23,339 --> 01:12:25,882
I think it s time you let me
take you out to breakfast.
993
01:12:28,928 --> 01:12:30,012
Lunch.
994
01:12:32,223 --> 01:12:35,434
Quit playing with that food.
But, ladies, y all come back.
995
01:12:35,601 --> 01:12:38,645
- You need to finish that before Christmas.
- Thank you, treasure.
996
01:12:38,813 --> 01:12:42,107
Now, the other night, you said
you re opposed to the death penalty.

997
01:12:42,275 --> 01:12:44,484
- Yes, sir.
- Why?
998
01:12:44,652 --> 01:12:45,986
- You re not?
- Mm-mm.
999
01:12:46,154 --> 01:12:47,988
Actually, I m very much in favor of it.
1000
01:12:48,156 --> 01:12:51,033
I d like to go back to hangings
on the court lawn if we could.
1001
01:12:51,868 --> 01:12:53,744
- You re kidding, right?
- No.
1002
01:12:53,911 --> 01:12:57,873
The only problem with the death penalty,
Roark, is that we do not use it enough.
1003
01:13:01,044 --> 01:13:03,670
Well, have you told
your client Carl Lee Hailey this?
1004
01:13:03,838 --> 01:13:05,964
Carl Lee does not
deserve the death penalty.
1005
01:13:06,132 --> 01:13:09,134
- The two men who raped his daughter did.
- How do you decide...
1006
01:13:09,302 --> 01:13:10,635
who dies and who doesn t?
1007
01:13:10,803 --> 01:13:15,766
Well, simple. Okay, you take the crime
and you take the criminal.
1008
01:13:15,933 --> 01:13:20,062
Now, say a crack dealer
guns down an undercover cop.
1009
01:13:20,229 --> 01:13:22,981

Well, you strap his ass to the chair,


flip the switch.
1010
01:13:23,149 --> 01:13:25,317
For some reason,
I thought you were a liberal.
1011
01:13:25,860 --> 01:13:27,652
Well, I am a liberal, Roark.
1012
01:13:27,820 --> 01:13:31,698
What I am not
is a card-carrying ACLU radical.
1013
01:13:32,075 --> 01:13:34,618
I do not believe in forgiveness,
nor in rehabilitation.
1014
01:13:34,786 --> 01:13:38,705
I believe in safety. I believe in justice.
1015
01:13:40,166 --> 01:13:43,335
I see. Well, let me ask you something.
1016
01:13:43,503 --> 01:13:45,253
Have you ever seen a man executed?
1017
01:13:46,756 --> 01:13:49,132
- Not that I recall.
- Then what I suggest you do...
1018
01:13:49,300 --> 01:13:51,009
is you go watch a man be executed.
1019
01:13:51,177 --> 01:13:54,971
You watch him die, watch him beg, watch
him kick and spit the life out of him...
1020
01:13:55,139 --> 01:13:57,849
until he pisses and shits in his pants,
until he s gone.
1021
01:13:58,017 --> 01:14:01,103
Then you come back here
and sing this crap to me about justice...
1022
01:14:01,270 --> 01:14:04,314

Roark, spare me your Northern,


liberal, cry-me-a-river...
1023
01:14:04,482 --> 01:14:07,526
we-are-the-only-enlightened-ones
bullshit.
1024
01:14:07,693 --> 01:14:10,362
I m so sorry, yes, you are the enlightened.
Yes, you are.
1025
01:14:10,530 --> 01:14:14,407
And that s why you brought me to this
black diner in this black neighborhood.
1026
01:14:14,575 --> 01:14:18,745
So you can convince me you re
this JFK-meets-Jesus-Christ white boy.
1027
01:14:18,913 --> 01:14:20,038
Is that what it is?
1028
01:14:20,206 --> 01:14:23,083
Or because you re another repressed,
hypocritical provincial...
1029
01:14:23,251 --> 01:14:26,711
who maybe didn t want to be seen
around town with a woman like myself?
1030
01:14:27,296 --> 01:14:29,548
Yes, you sure are enlightened.
You know what?
1031
01:14:29,715 --> 01:14:33,552
I m terribly sorry, I ve made a mistake.
I thought you were one of the good guys.
1032
01:14:33,719 --> 01:14:36,721
Thank you very much for your time,
Mr. Brigance.
1033
01:14:52,280 --> 01:14:53,321
Do it.
1034
01:14:53,489 --> 01:14:55,699
I get a little worked up.

1035
01:14:56,784 --> 01:14:59,578
Guess that s not the best way
to apply for a job, huh?
1036
01:15:02,498 --> 01:15:06,918
I don t want the jury to see those pictures
of the dead rapists. Can we keep them out?
1037
01:15:07,378 --> 01:15:08,420
No.
1038
01:15:09,338 --> 01:15:12,424
It is vital that I admit the rape.
I want the jury to know details.
1039
01:15:12,592 --> 01:15:14,801
I m gonna need briefs on both.
1040
01:15:14,969 --> 01:15:17,804
I don t like your politics, Roark,
but you do have passion...
1041
01:15:17,972 --> 01:15:20,307
and that s something
Carl Lee needs right now...
1042
01:15:20,474 --> 01:15:22,434
and maybe so do I.
1043
01:15:24,520 --> 01:15:25,604
Are you getting this?
1044
01:15:25,771 --> 01:15:27,939
I m writing it down.
1045
01:15:28,482 --> 01:15:30,609
All right, here s what we got.
It s official.
1046
01:15:30,776 --> 01:15:33,945
The trial of Carl Lee Hailey
will be held in Canton.
1047
01:15:34,113 --> 01:15:38,783
Today, presiding Judge Noose issued
150 summonses for potential jurors...

1048
01:15:38,951 --> 01:15:40,368
in a sealed envelope.
1049
01:15:42,622 --> 01:15:44,456
Now, to prevent tampering...
1050
01:15:44,624 --> 01:15:48,793
that list will be kept strictly confidential
until jury selection begins on Wednesday.
1051
01:15:48,961 --> 01:15:51,963
No one,
not even Mr. Brigance or myself...
1052
01:15:52,131 --> 01:15:55,592
will know the identities
of the potential jurors in this case.
1053
01:16:14,362 --> 01:16:18,615
Free Carl Lee!
Free Carl Lee! Free Carl Lee!
1054
01:16:18,783 --> 01:16:21,243
Free Carl Lee! Free Carl Lee!
1055
01:16:21,410 --> 01:16:24,329
Free Carl Lee! Free Carl Lee!
Free Carl Lee!
1056
01:16:28,000 --> 01:16:30,377
Beautiful day, isn t it?
1057
01:16:30,544 --> 01:16:32,379
There he is.
1058
01:16:34,048 --> 01:16:36,508
- Any word on Bud?
- Ethel s still with him.
1059
01:16:36,676 --> 01:16:38,009
Thank you for coming, sir.
1060
01:16:39,220 --> 01:16:40,929
Well, well, well.
1061
01:16:41,097 --> 01:16:43,390

The Pillsbury Doughboy.


1062
01:16:43,557 --> 01:16:45,725
Still practicing exploitative law?
1063
01:16:45,893 --> 01:16:47,018
Thought you were dead.
1064
01:16:47,186 --> 01:16:49,396
I m trying. Who do we have here?
1065
01:16:49,563 --> 01:16:51,731
Miss Roark, I would like
to introduce to you...
1066
01:16:51,899 --> 01:16:55,694
Lucien Wilbanks, third white man
in Mississippi to join the NAACP...
1067
01:16:55,861 --> 01:16:58,655
permanently disbarred
by the superior court...
1068
01:16:58,823 --> 01:17:03,034
for attacking police who busted
a picket line in the EPSO oil strike.
1069
01:17:03,202 --> 01:17:05,495
It is a pleasure, Ms. Ark.
1070
01:17:07,164 --> 01:17:10,375
All right, everybody,
jury selection begins this afternoon.
1071
01:17:10,543 --> 01:17:13,962
Now, to win this case, we need
a sympathetic jury willing to acquit...
1072
01:17:14,130 --> 01:17:17,215
and a jury that can use
the insanity plea as an excuse to do so.
1073
01:17:17,383 --> 01:17:18,508
I m gonna need a drink.
1074
01:17:18,884 --> 01:17:20,218
No drinking.

1075
01:17:20,386 --> 01:17:22,929
What do you mean, no drinking?
It s my building...
1076
01:17:23,097 --> 01:17:26,266
built by my grandfather,
leased to you for a reasonable rent...
1077
01:17:26,434 --> 01:17:27,559
and I want a drink.
1078
01:17:27,727 --> 01:17:31,146
Ms. Ark, I have all the respect
in the world for you.
1079
01:17:31,314 --> 01:17:34,482
I believe in your right to equal pay,
equal work, to bear a child...
1080
01:17:34,650 --> 01:17:38,611
or to abort one. I think you
should be treated just like a man.
1081
01:17:38,779 --> 01:17:40,697
And since you are a law clerk...
1082
01:17:40,865 --> 01:17:42,490
genderless in my eyes...
1083
01:17:42,658 --> 01:17:45,368
I think you should be
the one to go buy the beer.
1084
01:17:45,536 --> 01:17:50,040
ERA she-woman, that would be an excellent
activity for you this afternoon.
1085
01:17:50,207 --> 01:17:53,126
Hey. No drinking. Not today.
1086
01:17:56,797 --> 01:17:59,924
Now, ahem, Noose selects
this panel at random.
1087
01:18:00,092 --> 01:18:02,385
If we get too many bad candidates,

we re sunk.
1088
01:18:02,678 --> 01:18:04,137
Luck of the draw.
1089
01:18:04,305 --> 01:18:05,430
What you need...
1090
01:18:05,598 --> 01:18:08,433
is young fathers who wanna do
what Carl Lee Hailey did.
1091
01:18:08,601 --> 01:18:11,603
Agreed. I think we need young men
with families here.
1092
01:18:11,771 --> 01:18:15,106
Now, I would prefer no one over 50.
Less bigotry, as a rule, with youth.
1093
01:18:15,274 --> 01:18:18,693
So we stay away from women,
rednecks and old men.
1094
01:18:18,986 --> 01:18:21,029
Uh, citizens, thank you.
1095
01:18:21,197 --> 01:18:24,240
Now, counsel, you each have
12 challenges. Let s begin.
1096
01:18:26,452 --> 01:18:32,624
Your Honor, the state challenges
Jurors Number 6, 10 and 32.
1097
01:18:32,792 --> 01:18:37,796
Your Honor,
the defense strikes Jurors 1, 4, 8 and 2.
1098
01:18:46,430 --> 01:18:51,059
Twenty-six, 27, 28 and 31.
1099
01:18:51,352 --> 01:18:55,188
Your Honor, the defense
also strikes Jurors 22 and 29.
1100
01:19:00,903 --> 01:19:04,614

Now that s it, then. Mr. Brigance,


you re all out of challenges. We re done.
1101
01:19:09,286 --> 01:19:13,540
Jurors, you will be sequestered
starting tonight.
1102
01:19:13,707 --> 01:19:15,500
Opening statements begin
tomorrow morning.
1103
01:19:17,336 --> 01:19:20,380
That s a jury of my peers?
1104
01:19:21,173 --> 01:19:23,007
God bless America.
1105
01:19:24,844 --> 01:19:26,803
My name is Stump Sisson...
1106
01:19:26,971 --> 01:19:30,265
and I m proud to be a grand dragon...
1107
01:19:30,433 --> 01:19:34,185
for the Invisible Empire
of the Ku Klux Klan.
1108
01:19:37,064 --> 01:19:38,440
What the hell?
1109
01:19:38,607 --> 01:19:42,861
And I m here to say that the law-abiding
white folks of Mississippi...
1110
01:19:43,028 --> 01:19:49,534
are sick and tired of niggers stealing,
raping, killing and getting away with it.
1111
01:19:49,827 --> 01:19:51,911
Ozzie, let s get them out of here.
1112
01:19:52,955 --> 01:19:54,330
We demand justice.
1113
01:19:54,498 --> 01:19:57,750
We demand this nigger be convicted...

1114
01:19:57,918 --> 01:20:02,755
and his black ass
sent to the gas chamber.
1115
01:20:02,923 --> 01:20:04,132
Who you calling nigger?
1116
01:20:04,300 --> 01:20:08,553
You pointy-headed, white-faced,
no-good, wife-beating son of a whore!
1117
01:20:08,721 --> 01:20:10,305
Shut up, you wild animal!
1118
01:20:10,473 --> 01:20:13,475
- Animal? You re the damn animal!
- I ll drag your ass out of here!
1119
01:20:13,642 --> 01:20:15,351
- You re the damn animal!
- Unh!
1120
01:20:19,857 --> 01:20:21,024
Come on!
1121
01:20:21,567 --> 01:20:23,151
Come on!
1122
01:20:28,824 --> 01:20:30,617
Come here, come here!
1123
01:20:41,587 --> 01:20:42,837
That s right, go on!
1124
01:20:55,726 --> 01:20:59,187
Hastings! Hastings! Hastings!
1125
01:21:11,909 --> 01:21:13,660
What s going on?
1126
01:21:23,170 --> 01:21:24,879
This is for Billy Ray.
1127
01:21:29,760 --> 01:21:32,428
- Open! Open the gate!
- Open the gate!

1128
01:21:45,568 --> 01:21:47,151
Turn around.
1129
01:21:52,575 --> 01:21:54,826
I can t get to this.
Just take off your pants.
1130
01:21:54,994 --> 01:21:57,036
Come on, Roark, do I look that easy?
1131
01:21:57,413 --> 01:21:59,747
Are you afraid
I m gonna see you in your underwear?
1132
01:21:59,915 --> 01:22:03,334
With Carla gone, the laundry s piling up.
I m not wearing any.
1133
01:22:03,502 --> 01:22:06,170
It s all right, I haven t
worn any in years.
1134
01:22:07,172 --> 01:22:10,341
Look, I m not gonna watch, I promise.
Now strip, please.
1135
01:22:11,552 --> 01:22:13,636
All right. Fine. Batter up.
1136
01:22:15,264 --> 01:22:18,266
- What I need from you, Roark...
- Do tell.
1137
01:22:18,434 --> 01:22:21,978
Is a way to discredit the state s shrink,
Dr. Rodeheaver.
1138
01:22:22,146 --> 01:22:24,314
Unless you discredit the shrink....
1139
01:22:24,481 --> 01:22:26,816
Carl Lee does not have a chance. Ow.
1140
01:22:26,984 --> 01:22:28,026
Mm.

1141
01:22:28,193 --> 01:22:30,028
Sorry. Sissy.
1142
01:22:31,530 --> 01:22:33,281
I think he s got a very good chance.
1143
01:22:34,658 --> 01:22:37,035
There you go. I think you re gonna live.
All right.
1144
01:22:37,202 --> 01:22:38,911
Thanks. Whoo.
1145
01:22:39,204 --> 01:22:40,955
Good butt.
1146
01:22:43,959 --> 01:22:46,085
Ugh. So, uh....
1147
01:22:46,378 --> 01:22:48,796
What do you folks do around here
to blow off steam...
1148
01:22:48,964 --> 01:22:51,174
besides trying to kill each other?
1149
01:22:51,342 --> 01:22:57,430
You got discos or strip bars
or malls or anything to go to?
1150
01:23:07,024 --> 01:23:08,107
Stump s dead.
1151
01:23:12,237 --> 01:23:13,446
He s dead, Freddie.
1152
01:23:15,866 --> 01:23:18,201
Come on, Freddie. Let s go on home.
1153
01:23:18,369 --> 01:23:20,203
It s all over.
1154
01:23:22,039 --> 01:23:24,207
It ain t near over.
1155

01:23:24,500 --> 01:23:26,918


How you doing? Good to see you.
Excuse me.
1156
01:23:27,086 --> 01:23:28,586
Hey, I ll be right back.
1157
01:23:28,754 --> 01:23:30,421
- Here are your mud bugs.
Mm-hm.
1158
01:23:30,589 --> 01:23:31,839
There you go, darling.
1159
01:23:32,007 --> 01:23:34,592
- Anything else?
- Yeah, a couple of dinner specials...
1160
01:23:34,760 --> 01:23:36,678
and some fried dill pickles.
1161
01:23:36,845 --> 01:23:39,055
- You got it, honey.
- Thank you, Sugar.
1162
01:23:39,973 --> 01:23:42,850
That wasn t sexist at all.
Really, I never order my own food.
1163
01:23:43,769 --> 01:23:45,144
I can t do another shot.
1164
01:23:45,771 --> 01:23:48,398
- All right, fine, I ll take another shot.
- Just a splash.
1165
01:23:48,565 --> 01:23:50,441
Just a splash.
1166
01:23:51,527 --> 01:23:52,568
All right.
1167
01:23:52,736 --> 01:23:54,654
- To....
- To....
1168
01:23:55,072 --> 01:23:56,114

Carl Lee Hailey.


1169
01:23:56,281 --> 01:23:59,033
May our jury find that man loony
as a proverbial fruitcake.
1170
01:23:59,201 --> 01:24:00,785
Hear, hear.
1171
01:24:03,205 --> 01:24:04,497
No more.
1172
01:24:06,625 --> 01:24:08,334
So, um....
1173
01:24:09,712 --> 01:24:11,671
Do you think he was crazy
when he did it?
1174
01:24:13,048 --> 01:24:15,299
No, he wasn t crazy.
1175
01:24:15,467 --> 01:24:17,260
He told me he was gonna do it.
1176
01:24:20,472 --> 01:24:23,808
I tried to tell myself he wasn t serious.
1177
01:24:27,521 --> 01:24:29,981
I think I really wanted him to do it.
1178
01:24:32,276 --> 01:24:35,319
I came home that night and I was looking
at Hannah laying there...
1179
01:24:35,487 --> 01:24:37,363
looking how tender she is.
1180
01:24:38,157 --> 01:24:41,075
All I could think about
was all the monsters out there...
1181
01:24:41,243 --> 01:24:44,454
and any one of them can come steal
her innocence.
1182

01:24:48,208 --> 01:24:50,168


Take her life, if they wanted.
1183
01:24:57,801 --> 01:25:01,888
Yeah, I wanted those boys dead.
You re goddamn right I did.
1184
01:25:08,979 --> 01:25:10,688
I guess I helped killed them.
1185
01:25:14,651 --> 01:25:17,195
So tomorrow, when we get in court...
1186
01:25:19,031 --> 01:25:21,657
it s not just Carl Lee
I m trying to get off.
1187
01:25:40,552 --> 01:25:41,803
Burn in hell, Brigance!
1188
01:25:55,234 --> 01:25:57,235
Good job.
1189
01:26:00,113 --> 01:26:02,949
- Nice place...
- How is it you ll drive an hour and half...
1190
01:26:03,116 --> 01:26:07,161
outside of town to take me to dinner,
but you have no problem...
1191
01:26:07,329 --> 01:26:09,747
walking me into my motel room?
1192
01:26:09,915 --> 01:26:11,916
Well, with everything that s going on...
1193
01:26:12,084 --> 01:26:14,418
I don t think we can be too careful.
1194
01:26:14,586 --> 01:26:17,129
Just wanna make sure
it s all safe in here.
1195
01:26:17,297 --> 01:26:18,840
I m not scared.

1196
01:26:19,007 --> 01:26:22,009
- Oh, yes, I am.
- Of what?
1197
01:26:22,553 --> 01:26:24,887
Of what s going to happen tomorrow.
1198
01:26:25,222 --> 01:26:28,391
All the other cases I ve worked on
have only been paper defendants.
1199
01:26:28,559 --> 01:26:33,020
It s just I never knew the towns,
and I never touched the lives or anything.
1200
01:26:33,188 --> 01:26:35,314
So I don t know what it s like.
1201
01:26:41,613 --> 01:26:43,614
Tomorrow morning...
1202
01:26:43,782 --> 01:26:47,368
Buckley will try to
kill Carl Lee Hailey.
1203
01:26:47,953 --> 01:26:50,371
Now, it s on us to stop him.
1204
01:26:50,539 --> 01:26:52,290
Mm-hm.
1205
01:26:53,083 --> 01:26:55,126
So tonight,
go over the battle in your mind.
1206
01:26:55,294 --> 01:26:58,296
Argument, rebuttal,
examination and cross. All of it.
1207
01:26:58,505 --> 01:26:59,672
Mm-hm.
1208
01:27:00,173 --> 01:27:02,300
- Remember something.
- Hmm.
1209

01:27:03,260 --> 01:27:06,971


- You are one of the good guys.
- Okay.
1210
01:27:07,472 --> 01:27:11,142
- And good guy has the spicy on her lip.
- Spicy.
1211
01:27:11,310 --> 01:27:13,895
But still one of the good guys.
1212
01:27:26,950 --> 01:27:28,910
I m going home.
1213
01:27:29,328 --> 01:27:33,080
Lock the door behind me, Roark.
I ll see you in the morning.
1214
01:27:46,637 --> 01:27:48,679
It s gonna blow, sheriff. It s gonna blow.
1215
01:27:52,517 --> 01:27:54,810
Oz is right over there!
1216
01:27:59,441 --> 01:28:01,609
Wait. Wait. Hold it, Jake. Hold it, Jake.
1217
01:28:01,777 --> 01:28:02,985
- My dog s in there.
- Jake...
1218
01:28:03,153 --> 01:28:04,612
My dog s in there!
1219
01:28:04,780 --> 01:28:05,821
Max!
1220
01:28:05,989 --> 01:28:08,032
Come on. Come on.
1221
01:28:08,200 --> 01:28:10,034
Max!
1222
01:28:12,120 --> 01:28:13,746
Max!
1223

01:28:19,544 --> 01:28:21,379


It s too late.
1224
01:28:41,984 --> 01:28:44,318
Move, move, move.
1225
01:29:22,107 --> 01:29:23,691
Hey, buddy.
1226
01:29:24,818 --> 01:29:26,152
Seen my dog?
1227
01:29:26,611 --> 01:29:28,070
Looking for my dog.
1228
01:29:28,238 --> 01:29:32,199
Max, come here, boy! Let s go!
Come on, Max!
1229
01:29:33,952 --> 01:29:39,832
I booked you on the 9:15 to Gulfport.
Economy, of course.
1230
01:29:40,125 --> 01:29:41,834
Go see your wife and daughter, Jake.
1231
01:29:44,087 --> 01:29:46,505
What d you do that for, Harry Rex?
1232
01:29:46,715 --> 01:29:48,632
We got trial in less than three hours.
1233
01:29:48,967 --> 01:29:50,009
Oh, come on.
1234
01:29:50,177 --> 01:29:52,553
Noose would give you a continuance
in a flash.
1235
01:29:52,721 --> 01:29:56,682
NAACP boys be down here before lunch.
Drooling.
1236
01:29:57,434 --> 01:30:00,478
Max, let s go, boy! Come on!
1237

01:30:01,354 --> 01:30:03,189


Jake, listen to me.
1238
01:30:03,732 --> 01:30:07,068
Your marriage is on the rocks,
you re about to have an affair.
1239
01:30:07,235 --> 01:30:10,738
Your career s in ruins if you re lucky,
and if you re not, you re dead.
1240
01:30:12,282 --> 01:30:13,783
Don t get me wrong, my friend.
1241
01:30:14,743 --> 01:30:17,661
What you ve put into this case,
you even inspired me, and I m...
1242
01:30:17,829 --> 01:30:19,872
I m uninspirable.
1243
01:30:20,040 --> 01:30:21,749
Do everyone a favor, though.
1244
01:30:21,917 --> 01:30:24,001
Drop the case.
1245
01:30:27,339 --> 01:30:29,673
No, I can t.
1246
01:30:30,300 --> 01:30:32,843
I won t. I m not gonna quit.
1247
01:30:33,804 --> 01:30:36,263
I quit now, and all this
is for nothing. No.
1248
01:30:39,851 --> 01:30:42,603
Max, come on now.
Max, where are you? Come on, Max!
1249
01:30:42,771 --> 01:30:45,147
Max is dead, and you re next.
1250
01:30:46,233 --> 01:30:48,109
Walk away.

1251
01:30:57,869 --> 01:31:00,496
Max. Come here, boy.
1252
01:31:01,373 --> 01:31:03,290
Come here. Come here, boy. Ha-ha-ha.
1253
01:31:03,500 --> 01:31:05,000
Come here. Come here.
1254
01:31:05,168 --> 01:31:07,378
Who s got the goods, huh? Huh?
1255
01:31:09,923 --> 01:31:12,550
Pretrial strategy at my office
in less than two hours...
1256
01:31:12,717 --> 01:31:15,386
and I expect to see your ass there.
1257
01:31:15,762 --> 01:31:18,681
Free Carl Lee!
Free Carl Lee! Free Carl Lee!
1258
01:31:18,849 --> 01:31:22,184
Free Carl Lee! Free Carl Lee!
Free Carl Lee!
1259
01:31:30,152 --> 01:31:32,153
Fry Carl Lee.
1260
01:31:33,530 --> 01:31:34,780
Free Carl Lee!
1261
01:31:36,491 --> 01:31:38,868
Fry Carl Lee! Fry Carl Lee! Fry Carl Lee!
1262
01:31:39,035 --> 01:31:40,244
Free Carl Lee!
1263
01:31:43,165 --> 01:31:45,499
Free Carl Lee! Free Carl Lee!
1264
01:31:49,546 --> 01:31:53,174
Fry Carl Lee! Fry Carl Lee! Fry Carl Lee!
1265

01:31:53,341 --> 01:31:57,803


Fry Carl Lee! Fry Carl Lee! Fry Carl Lee!
1266
01:32:05,020 --> 01:32:08,397
Now, Mr. Buckley, you may begin.
1267
01:32:08,565 --> 01:32:10,441
Thank you, Your Honor.
1268
01:32:13,278 --> 01:32:15,905
- Good morning.
- Good morning.
1269
01:32:17,824 --> 01:32:22,494
You are Cora Mae Cobb, the mother of
Billy Ray Cobb the deceased, are you not?
1270
01:32:22,662 --> 01:32:24,121
Yes, sir.
1271
01:32:24,289 --> 01:32:26,707
And where were you
when your son was murdered?
1272
01:32:27,000 --> 01:32:30,211
I was right outside that door right there.
1273
01:32:30,378 --> 01:32:33,172
Me and Freddie was waiting
for his hearing.
1274
01:32:33,673 --> 01:32:35,674
He was walking up the stairs...
1275
01:32:35,842 --> 01:32:37,635
in handcuffs.
1276
01:32:37,928 --> 01:32:41,513
Can you tell us how old your son was
at the time of his death?
1277
01:32:42,891 --> 01:32:43,974
Twenty-three.
1278
01:32:45,852 --> 01:32:48,020
You say your son was 23 when he died?

1279
01:32:48,438 --> 01:32:49,480
Yes.
1280
01:32:49,648 --> 01:32:52,566
In those 23 years, Mrs. Cobb...
1281
01:32:52,734 --> 01:32:54,860
how many other children
did your son kidnap?
1282
01:32:55,028 --> 01:32:56,820
Objection, Your Honor! Objection!
1283
01:32:56,988 --> 01:33:00,616
Sustained. You...
You are out of order, Mr. Brigance.
1284
01:33:00,784 --> 01:33:03,452
- Withdraw the question.
- The jury will disregard...
1285
01:33:03,620 --> 01:33:05,788
the last question from Mr. Brigance.
1286
01:33:06,665 --> 01:33:10,084
Mrs. Cobb, in your son s 23 years...
1287
01:33:10,252 --> 01:33:12,294
how many other children did he rape?
1288
01:33:12,462 --> 01:33:15,089
Mr. Brigance. In my chambers.
1289
01:33:16,174 --> 01:33:17,508
Court will recess for lunch.
1290
01:33:20,345 --> 01:33:22,930
I don t get it.
Why is he antagonizing the judge?
1291
01:33:23,098 --> 01:33:25,349
He should ve known
Noose d pull him into chambers.
1292
01:33:25,517 --> 01:33:29,770
Of course he knew. Jake got to draw first

blood and he knows that s more important.


1293
01:33:30,897 --> 01:33:32,773
- Hello, Harry.
- Hi, Rufie.
1294
01:33:32,941 --> 01:33:36,819
- Sweetheart, come play on a winning team.
- How s that impotence thing, Rufus?
1295
01:33:40,240 --> 01:33:43,033
You re not being paid
for the work you re doing, are you?
1296
01:33:43,201 --> 01:33:44,285
No, sir.
1297
01:33:45,704 --> 01:33:48,144
Well, I guess Jake s paying you
in other ways, then, isn t he?
1298
01:33:50,292 --> 01:33:51,375
Impotence?
1299
01:33:51,543 --> 01:33:53,168
Yep. Girls talk.
1300
01:33:53,336 --> 01:33:58,173
Sheriff, if you would,
will you please identify this weapon?
1301
01:33:58,341 --> 01:33:59,925
It s the weapon found
at the scene.
1302
01:34:00,635 --> 01:34:04,638
And were you able to identify
any of the fingerprints found on this gun?
1303
01:34:04,889 --> 01:34:08,100
Yes. The prints on the gun
matched those of Carl Lee Hailey.
1304
01:34:08,268 --> 01:34:09,727
You re sure?
1305
01:34:10,228 --> 01:34:11,562

Yes.
1306
01:34:11,730 --> 01:34:15,941
Your Honor, I d like to enter this
into evidence as Exhibit S18.
1307
01:34:16,109 --> 01:34:18,360
We have no further use of this witness.
1308
01:34:22,490 --> 01:34:24,491
Sheriff Walls.
1309
01:34:25,869 --> 01:34:27,786
Did you arrest Cobb and Willard?
1310
01:34:27,954 --> 01:34:29,455
Yes, I did.
1311
01:34:29,622 --> 01:34:31,665
I arrested them for the rape...
1312
01:34:31,833 --> 01:34:35,753
and attempted murder
of 10-year-old Tonya Hailey.
1313
01:34:35,920 --> 01:34:37,546
And is it true that Pete Willard...
1314
01:34:37,714 --> 01:34:39,506
signed a written confession...
1315
01:34:39,674 --> 01:34:43,344
saying that he and Billy Ray Cobb
did rape Tonya Hailey?
1316
01:34:43,511 --> 01:34:46,430
Objection. That s inadmissible,
and Mr. Brigance knows it.
1317
01:34:46,598 --> 01:34:49,433
Mr. Brigance,
I ve spoken to you before.
1318
01:34:49,601 --> 01:34:52,436
We are not trying the rape
of Miss Hailey today...

1319
01:34:52,604 --> 01:34:57,274
but the murder of two young men,
and if you continue in this performance...
1320
01:34:58,109 --> 01:34:59,735
I ll hold you in contempt.
1321
01:34:59,986 --> 01:35:01,487
Now, is that understood?
1322
01:35:02,489 --> 01:35:04,031
Yes, sir.
1323
01:35:05,367 --> 01:35:07,618
I have no further questions,
Your Honor.
1324
01:35:07,786 --> 01:35:09,453
Yes.
1325
01:35:10,622 --> 01:35:12,581
You say something, sheriff?
1326
01:35:14,459 --> 01:35:17,628
- Yes, he did sign a confession.
- Objection, Your Honor!
1327
01:35:18,046 --> 01:35:23,050
Jurors, you will disregard
the last remark of Sheriff Walls.
1328
01:35:23,218 --> 01:35:27,179
Court is adjourned
till tomorrow morning 9:00.
1329
01:35:48,159 --> 01:35:50,369
I m taking Bud back to Oxford.
1330
01:35:51,955 --> 01:35:54,248
He always missed Oxford.
1331
01:36:11,141 --> 01:36:13,600
I don t know what to say,
Ethel, I don t know.
1332
01:36:13,768 --> 01:36:16,270

There s nothing you can say.


1333
01:36:17,522 --> 01:36:20,691
I know you didn t want
any of this to happen...
1334
01:36:20,859 --> 01:36:22,776
but it happened all the same.
1335
01:36:24,696 --> 01:36:28,115
You wagered all our lives on this.
1336
01:36:28,575 --> 01:36:33,203
You just went ahead and did what you felt
you had to do, no matter what the cost.
1337
01:36:35,540 --> 01:36:38,500
Some folks think that s brave.
1338
01:36:39,377 --> 01:36:41,503
Not me, Jake.
1339
01:36:42,422 --> 01:36:44,339
Now, you may win...
1340
01:36:44,966 --> 01:36:47,843
but I think we ve all lost here.
1341
01:36:54,559 --> 01:37:00,397
- Would you help an old lady to her car?
- You don t need any help, Ethel...
1342
01:37:00,565 --> 01:37:05,027
but it would be my honor
to escort you to your automobile.
1343
01:37:19,501 --> 01:37:21,460
Didn t like that one?
1344
01:37:21,878 --> 01:37:23,837
Buckley is presenting
his shrink tomorrow.
1345
01:37:24,005 --> 01:37:27,132
I can t come up with one way
to bring him down. Not one.

1346
01:37:27,300 --> 01:37:31,553
I keep asking myself, "What would
Jake do? What would my father do?
1347
01:37:31,721 --> 01:37:32,763
What would Lucien do?"
1348
01:37:32,931 --> 01:37:35,224
That s your problem right there.
1349
01:37:35,391 --> 01:37:39,269
What you gotta ask yourself is,
"What would Harry Rex do?"
1350
01:37:39,437 --> 01:37:41,021
What would Harry Rex do?
1351
01:37:41,189 --> 01:37:42,523
Cheat.
1352
01:37:42,690 --> 01:37:44,107
Cheat like crazy.
1353
01:37:48,613 --> 01:37:49,613
Yeah. Yeah, I did.
1354
01:37:49,781 --> 01:37:52,616
I ll bring her around the side.
1355
01:37:55,370 --> 01:37:56,703
Uh-huh.
1356
01:37:56,871 --> 01:37:58,372
- Hey, Cheryl.
- Hi.
1357
01:38:00,166 --> 01:38:01,667
So we gotta talk about it.
1358
01:38:02,252 --> 01:38:03,544
Now, wait a minute.
1359
01:38:03,711 --> 01:38:06,588
The judge said absolutely
not to discuss this case.

1360
01:38:06,756 --> 01:38:09,299
That judge ain t stuck here
away from his wife and kids.
1361
01:38:09,467 --> 01:38:13,345
The sooner we start talking about it,
the sooner we can get home.
1362
01:38:13,513 --> 01:38:15,973
I wanna get out of here
just as much as anybody else.
1363
01:38:16,140 --> 01:38:17,975
Let s get on with it.
1364
01:38:19,978 --> 01:38:21,395
Undecided?
1365
01:38:24,732 --> 01:38:26,233
Four.
1366
01:38:26,401 --> 01:38:28,277
Guilty?
1367
01:38:32,991 --> 01:38:34,825
Seven.
1368
01:38:35,493 --> 01:38:36,535
Not guilty?
1369
01:38:41,165 --> 01:38:43,500
That nigger s dead, y all.
1370
01:39:01,686 --> 01:39:05,188
I know, I know. Folks in town
just can t get enough of this trial.
1371
01:39:05,356 --> 01:39:09,526
And that s why my editor said I needed
to come down and interview Rodeheaver.
1372
01:39:10,069 --> 01:39:12,446
I m afraid
Dr. Rodeheaver s in court today.
1373
01:39:12,989 --> 01:39:14,031

Oh.
1374
01:39:14,574 --> 01:39:17,034
If a pretty girl like you
wants to be a reporter...
1375
01:39:17,201 --> 01:39:19,202
maybe she should do
some better research?
1376
01:39:19,370 --> 01:39:20,412
Yeah. Ha.
1377
01:39:20,580 --> 01:39:23,874
Well, um, you know what?
I don t... I don t mind waiting...
1378
01:39:24,042 --> 01:39:26,543
because my paper really wants
this interview...
1379
01:39:26,711 --> 01:39:28,962
so is he still in Room 369?
I ll just go there.
1380
01:39:29,130 --> 01:39:33,342
No, dear. Wrong again. He s in 128.
But he s gone all day.
1381
01:39:33,509 --> 01:39:35,010
You can t see him today.
1382
01:39:35,178 --> 01:39:38,889
You wanna come back to my office
and we can schedule an appointment?
1383
01:39:39,057 --> 01:39:41,183
You know what?
I ll come back another time...
1384
01:39:41,351 --> 01:39:44,102
when he s got time to talk,
when things kind of die down.
1385
01:39:44,270 --> 01:39:46,813
- I appreciate it. Thank you.
- You can call me any time.

1386
01:39:46,981 --> 01:39:48,815
Okay. Bye-bye.
1387
01:39:52,070 --> 01:39:55,822
Your Honor,
the state calls Deputy Dwayne Looney.
1388
01:40:31,776 --> 01:40:33,276
- Good morning.
- Good morning.
1389
01:40:33,444 --> 01:40:36,405
Would you please state
your name for the record?
1390
01:40:36,572 --> 01:40:39,783
Deputy Dwayne Powell Looney.
1391
01:40:39,951 --> 01:40:41,743
Thank you, Deputy Looney.
1392
01:40:41,911 --> 01:40:44,538
You were present at the murders
of Billy Ray Cobb...
1393
01:40:44,706 --> 01:40:46,957
and James Lewis Willard,
were you not?
1394
01:40:47,125 --> 01:40:48,709
Yes, sir. I was.
1395
01:40:48,876 --> 01:40:50,752
If you can remember...
1396
01:40:50,920 --> 01:40:55,132
describe how you were wounded
for the members of the jury.
1397
01:40:55,299 --> 01:40:58,802
I think bullets bounced off the floor,
caught me in the knee.
1398
01:40:58,970 --> 01:41:00,887
And what happened to your leg?
1399

01:41:02,265 --> 01:41:03,557


Doc cut it off.
1400
01:41:04,892 --> 01:41:09,938
And after the loss of your right leg,
Detective Looney...
1401
01:41:10,898 --> 01:41:13,275
are you still able
to serve as a police officer?
1402
01:41:15,194 --> 01:41:17,529
I m able to perform....
1403
01:41:21,159 --> 01:41:24,661
I m able to perform a number of services.
1404
01:41:24,829 --> 01:41:27,456
Did you get a good look at the man
with the gun?
1405
01:41:27,623 --> 01:41:28,665
No, sir.
1406
01:41:29,667 --> 01:41:34,838
However, Mr. Hailey did personally
apologize for his shooting me.
1407
01:41:36,966 --> 01:41:38,383
Oh.
1408
01:41:40,136 --> 01:41:43,305
So Mr. Hailey admitted shooting you.
1409
01:41:43,890 --> 01:41:44,931
Yes, sir.
1410
01:41:45,099 --> 01:41:46,975
I have no further questions, Your Honor.
1411
01:41:47,143 --> 01:41:49,060
- Mr. Brigance.
- No questions, Your Honor.
1412
01:41:49,228 --> 01:41:50,687
Wait a minute.

1413
01:41:50,855 --> 01:41:53,356
- Uh, Mr. Buckley?
- Yes, Your Honor.
1414
01:41:53,524 --> 01:41:54,900
The state would like to call...
1415
01:41:55,067 --> 01:41:57,027
Give me a moment
to speak with my client.
1416
01:41:57,195 --> 01:41:58,361
Take your time.
1417
01:42:00,323 --> 01:42:02,574
Ask him if he thinks I ought to go to jail.
1418
01:42:02,867 --> 01:42:05,827
Carl Lee, they amputated his leg
because you shot him.
1419
01:42:05,995 --> 01:42:07,788
He s a witness for the prosecution.
1420
01:42:07,955 --> 01:42:10,040
- You re my lawyer, ain t you?
- Yeah.
1421
01:42:10,583 --> 01:42:12,459
Ask him.
1422
01:42:18,758 --> 01:42:22,886
- Your Honor, one question.
- Make up your mind, Mr. Brigance.
1423
01:42:27,141 --> 01:42:28,183
Deputy Looney.
1424
01:42:29,769 --> 01:42:32,896
Do you think Carl Lee
shooting you was intentional?
1425
01:42:33,064 --> 01:42:34,481
No, sir.
1426
01:42:34,649 --> 01:42:35,982

It was an accident.
1427
01:42:40,404 --> 01:42:41,446
Ask him.
1428
01:42:48,538 --> 01:42:51,498
Do you think he should be punished
for shooting you?
1429
01:42:52,291 --> 01:42:54,042
No, sir.
1430
01:42:54,210 --> 01:42:57,838
I hold no ill will toward the man.
1431
01:42:58,256 --> 01:43:00,090
He did what I would ve done.
1432
01:43:00,258 --> 01:43:02,175
What do you mean by that,
Deputy Looney?
1433
01:43:02,343 --> 01:43:04,803
I mean I don t blame him
for what he did.
1434
01:43:04,971 --> 01:43:06,805
Those boys raped his little girl.
1435
01:43:06,973 --> 01:43:11,476
Objection, Your Honor. The witness s
opinion on this matter is irrelevant.
1436
01:43:11,644 --> 01:43:17,357
Your Honor, I believe Deputy Looney
has earned the right to speak here today.
1437
01:43:18,901 --> 01:43:20,068
Overruled.
1438
01:43:21,279 --> 01:43:22,904
Continue.
1439
01:43:25,658 --> 01:43:26,867
Go ahead, Dwayne.
1440

01:43:28,077 --> 01:43:30,328


I got a little girl.
1441
01:43:32,206 --> 01:43:34,875
Somebody rapes her, he s a dead dog.
1442
01:43:35,042 --> 01:43:37,252
I ll blow him away just like Carl Lee did.
1443
01:43:37,420 --> 01:43:38,628
Objection, Your Honor!
1444
01:43:38,796 --> 01:43:40,964
Do you think the jury
should convict Carl Lee?
1445
01:43:41,132 --> 01:43:43,425
Don t answer that question, deputy.
1446
01:43:43,593 --> 01:43:45,719
He s a hero. You turn him loose.
1447
01:43:45,887 --> 01:43:47,971
Jury will disregard.
1448
01:43:48,139 --> 01:43:49,389
Turn him loose!
1449
01:43:49,807 --> 01:43:52,058
Your Honor, you silence that witness!
1450
01:43:52,226 --> 01:43:54,227
Turn him loose!
1451
01:43:58,649 --> 01:43:59,774
No!
1452
01:44:01,652 --> 01:44:04,863
People say whatever the hell
they want in this courtroom!
1453
01:44:05,197 --> 01:44:06,740
Quiet!
1454
01:44:09,452 --> 01:44:11,828
Any more of that nonsense...

1455
01:44:11,996 --> 01:44:13,622
and you re all out of here.
1456
01:44:15,917 --> 01:44:18,752
Now, Mr. Buckley, you may begin.
1457
01:44:18,920 --> 01:44:20,962
Thank you, Your Honor.
1458
01:44:21,589 --> 01:44:26,217
Would you please state your name and
occupation for the members of the jury.
1459
01:44:26,385 --> 01:44:30,639
My name is Dr. Wilbert Rodeheaver,
chair of Psychiatry...
1460
01:44:30,806 --> 01:44:32,515
at Mississippi State University...
1461
01:44:32,683 --> 01:44:36,811
and clinical director of the Whitfield
Facility for the Criminally Insane.
1462
01:44:38,147 --> 01:44:41,066
Thank you, doctor.
Your credentials speak for themselves.
1463
01:44:41,233 --> 01:44:45,528
Now, doctor, can you please explain,
as you do so eloquently in your book...
1464
01:44:45,696 --> 01:44:47,864
the McNaughton Rule for the jury?
1465
01:44:48,032 --> 01:44:49,115
Certainly.
1466
01:44:49,283 --> 01:44:50,659
The McNaughton Rule states...
1467
01:44:50,826 --> 01:44:54,996
that a person must be
unable to tell right from wrong...
1468

01:44:55,164 --> 01:44:59,376


and/or be unaware
of the consequences of his actions...
1469
01:44:59,543 --> 01:45:01,753
to be termed legally insane.
1470
01:45:01,921 --> 01:45:03,838
Now, did you examine Mr. Hailey?
1471
01:45:04,006 --> 01:45:07,634
Yes. Mr. Hailey and I spoke
about his childhood, his family...
1472
01:45:07,802 --> 01:45:10,220
his experiences during the war.
1473
01:45:10,388 --> 01:45:12,138
And the rape of his daughter?
1474
01:45:12,306 --> 01:45:17,602
Yes, we spoke at length about the
brutal rape of his daughter Tonya.
1475
01:45:17,770 --> 01:45:21,356
What is your diagnosis
of Mr. Hailey s mental condition...
1476
01:45:21,524 --> 01:45:26,194
on the day that he shot
Billy Ray Cobb and James Lewis Willard?
1477
01:45:26,362 --> 01:45:28,697
At the time of the murders,
his mental condition...
1478
01:45:28,864 --> 01:45:31,074
was without any defects of any nature.
1479
01:45:31,242 --> 01:45:33,076
Mr. Hailey was sane.
1480
01:45:33,244 --> 01:45:35,662
But wait a minute, doctor.
The defense contends...
1481
01:45:35,830 --> 01:45:38,915

Why, Mr. Brigance has gone to great effort


to prove to this jury...
1482
01:45:39,083 --> 01:45:42,377
that Mr. Hailey is a nutball.
1483
01:45:42,586 --> 01:45:44,587
Is a slow coach.
1484
01:45:44,755 --> 01:45:48,216
Or what s the clinical definition?
1485
01:45:48,384 --> 01:45:49,926
Insane.
1486
01:45:51,846 --> 01:45:54,097
- Do you disagree?
- Yes.
1487
01:45:54,265 --> 01:45:57,142
Carl Lee Hailey knew very well
what he was doing.
1488
01:45:57,309 --> 01:45:59,811
He slaughtered those men in cold blood.
1489
01:46:00,855 --> 01:46:01,938
Thank you, doctor.
1490
01:46:02,106 --> 01:46:05,150
I have no further questions, Your Honor.
1491
01:46:06,110 --> 01:46:09,571
- Buddy, where the hell is Roark?
- I got no clue.
1492
01:46:09,739 --> 01:46:11,990
Cross-examination, Mr. Brigance?
1493
01:46:13,117 --> 01:46:17,037
Your Honor,
we would request a recess until...
1494
01:46:19,331 --> 01:46:22,417
No, we will not need a recess,
Your Honor, but just a few moments.

1495
01:46:29,008 --> 01:46:30,592
Mr. Brigance?
1496
01:46:30,760 --> 01:46:33,970
When you and Lois Lane are ready....
1497
01:46:37,308 --> 01:46:39,684
Just a few questions, Your Honor.
1498
01:46:42,521 --> 01:46:44,189
Doctor, who do you work for?
1499
01:46:44,356 --> 01:46:45,982
State of Mississippi.
1500
01:46:46,150 --> 01:46:47,358
In your 11 years...
1501
01:46:47,526 --> 01:46:51,154
how many times have you testified
where the insanity defense was used?
1502
01:46:51,322 --> 01:46:53,490
This is my 46th trial.
1503
01:46:53,657 --> 01:46:55,325
Forty-sixth trial.
1504
01:46:55,493 --> 01:46:56,743
Well, of those 46 trials...
1505
01:46:56,911 --> 01:47:00,997
how many times have you testified
that the defendant was legally insane?
1506
01:47:01,165 --> 01:47:03,792
Objection, Your Honor!
The good doctor cannot be asked...
1507
01:47:03,959 --> 01:47:08,129
to recall all of his testimony
at these previous trials. It s absurd.
1508
01:47:08,297 --> 01:47:09,589
Overruled.

1509
01:47:10,591 --> 01:47:12,509
Thank you, Your Honor.
1510
01:47:13,052 --> 01:47:14,511
I can t remember.
1511
01:47:14,678 --> 01:47:17,222
Could it be, doctor, the reason
you can t remember...
1512
01:47:17,389 --> 01:47:20,391
is that in 11 years and 46 trials...
1513
01:47:20,559 --> 01:47:23,770
you never have seen a defendant
whom you have found insane?
1514
01:47:24,105 --> 01:47:26,231
I can t recall at this time.
1515
01:47:27,691 --> 01:47:30,235
Can you recall testifying
at the trial of one Dan Baker?
1516
01:47:30,402 --> 01:47:33,738
Objection! Your Honor, this has nothing
to do with the proceedings here.
1517
01:47:33,906 --> 01:47:35,323
Overruled.
1518
01:47:35,491 --> 01:47:39,577
- This.... This better be good, Mr. Brigance.
- Thank you, Your Honor.
1519
01:47:40,371 --> 01:47:44,833
I ll ask again. Can you recall
testifying the trial of one Dan Baker?
1520
01:47:45,000 --> 01:47:49,838
It s a rather brutal double homicide where
you found the defendant legally sane?
1521
01:47:50,589 --> 01:47:51,840
Yes.
1522

01:47:52,007 --> 01:47:54,592


A dissenting psychiatrist
disagreed with you, doctor.
1523
01:47:54,760 --> 01:47:58,263
And Mr. Baker was found insane
and institutionalized.
1524
01:47:58,430 --> 01:48:00,056
Where is he currently, doctor?
1525
01:48:00,224 --> 01:48:01,266
At Whitfield.
1526
01:48:01,433 --> 01:48:03,560
Who is the chief psychiatrist
at Whitfield?
1527
01:48:03,727 --> 01:48:06,146
- I am.
- You are.
1528
01:48:07,398 --> 01:48:10,233
Dr. Rodeheaver is the chief psychiatrist
at Whitfield.
1529
01:48:10,776 --> 01:48:13,570
Now, help me make this clear
to the jury, doctor.
1530
01:48:13,737 --> 01:48:18,867
In 1985, you testified that Dan Baker
was legally sane.
1531
01:48:19,034 --> 01:48:21,119
The jury disagreed with you.
1532
01:48:21,287 --> 01:48:24,706
And Mr. Baker was found not guilty
by reason of insanity.
1533
01:48:24,874 --> 01:48:28,334
Since that time, he has been a patient
in your hospital, under your care...
1534
01:48:28,502 --> 01:48:31,087
as a paranoid schizophrenic.
Is that correct, doctor?

1535
01:48:31,255 --> 01:48:32,338
Yes.
1536
01:48:32,506 --> 01:48:34,299
Do you normally admit patients...
1537
01:48:34,466 --> 01:48:37,927
keep and treat them for 10 years
if they re of sound mind and body?
1538
01:48:38,095 --> 01:48:39,429
Of course not.
1539
01:48:39,597 --> 01:48:41,973
Then it would be fair to say...
1540
01:48:42,141 --> 01:48:45,602
that you find insane people sane
for the purposes of trial?
1541
01:48:45,769 --> 01:48:48,813
Objection, Your Honor!
This is argumentative!
1542
01:48:48,981 --> 01:48:53,401
Withdraw the question, Your Honor.
No further questions.
1543
01:48:57,907 --> 01:48:59,282
Genius, Roark.
1544
01:49:14,215 --> 01:49:18,593
- Mr. Brigance! Mr. Brigance!
- Yes. Yes.
1545
01:49:18,761 --> 01:49:21,512
How do you expect
to get a fair trial in Mississippi?
1546
01:49:25,059 --> 01:49:26,809
Get him!
1547
01:49:27,853 --> 01:49:30,772
- Get an ambulance, get, get!
- Come on.

1548
01:49:43,160 --> 01:49:45,662
So is there any news
on the guard who was shot?
1549
01:49:46,580 --> 01:49:48,748
Ozzie says he s probably paralyzed.
1550
01:49:53,170 --> 01:49:55,046
Some stranger...
1551
01:49:55,214 --> 01:49:57,548
somebody s husband...
1552
01:49:57,841 --> 01:50:00,009
somebody s son...
1553
01:50:00,511 --> 01:50:03,263
put himself in harm s way...
1554
01:50:05,015 --> 01:50:06,724
for me.
1555
01:50:07,768 --> 01:50:10,270
When I saw the blood...
1556
01:50:10,896 --> 01:50:13,690
I got so scared
because I thought that was you.
1557
01:50:22,866 --> 01:50:24,492
Do you want me to stay?
1558
01:50:27,871 --> 01:50:29,455
Yeah.
1559
01:50:30,374 --> 01:50:32,542
I want you to stay.
1560
01:50:36,964 --> 01:50:39,215
So you better go.
1561
01:50:42,803 --> 01:50:44,679
Okay.
1562
01:51:04,742 --> 01:51:06,617

Oh, shit.
1563
01:51:13,000 --> 01:51:16,419
Speed limit s 45, not 70, ma am.
1564
01:51:16,587 --> 01:51:19,255
- Haven t been drinking, have you?
- I guess I just wasn t...
1565
01:51:19,423 --> 01:51:21,299
Let me ask you
to get out of the car.
1566
01:51:21,467 --> 01:51:24,635
- Is that really necessary?
- Just get out of the car.
1567
01:51:25,262 --> 01:51:28,681
Isnt it usually customary to ask
for a license and registration?
1568
01:51:30,059 --> 01:51:32,268
- You bitch.
- No!
1569
01:51:32,519 --> 01:51:34,604
Get her in the car.
1570
01:51:37,024 --> 01:51:39,609
- No! No!
- Come on.
1571
01:51:39,777 --> 01:51:41,527
Get in there.
1572
01:51:43,280 --> 01:51:45,156
Shut up!
1573
01:52:42,005 --> 01:52:44,924
You can t blame a nigger
for being a nigger...
1574
01:52:45,092 --> 01:52:48,511
no more than you can blame
a dog for being a dog.
1575
01:52:50,180 --> 01:52:52,765

But a whore like you...


1576
01:52:53,392 --> 01:52:56,394
co-mingling with mongrels,
betraying your own...
1577
01:52:56,562 --> 01:52:59,021
that makes you worse
than being a nigger.
1578
01:52:59,189 --> 01:53:01,482
So I ll tell you what I m gonna do.
1579
01:53:02,192 --> 01:53:04,610
I m gonna leave you tied up here naked.
1580
01:53:05,571 --> 01:53:08,156
First it ll just be the bugs eating at you.
1581
01:53:08,323 --> 01:53:10,032
One day, maybe two.
1582
01:53:10,200 --> 01:53:12,618
That sun s gonna be cooking you.
1583
01:53:12,870 --> 01:53:14,829
But them animals?
1584
01:53:16,290 --> 01:53:18,875
They re gonna pick up your stink.
1585
01:53:21,587 --> 01:53:24,213
They re gonna come looking
for something to eat.
1586
01:53:25,257 --> 01:53:28,843
Carl Lee Hailey should ve shot you too.
1587
01:53:35,017 --> 01:53:37,268
Come on, boys. Let s go.
1588
01:54:12,012 --> 01:54:14,597
No. No. No.
1589
01:54:14,765 --> 01:54:17,058
No. No.

1590
01:54:24,983 --> 01:54:27,068
Shh. It s okay.
1591
01:54:34,826 --> 01:54:35,910
It s okay.
1592
01:54:36,078 --> 01:54:37,620
It s okay now.
1593
01:54:37,788 --> 01:54:39,622
It s okay.
1594
01:54:43,043 --> 01:54:46,379
Mr. Brigance,
you may call your first witness.
1595
01:54:46,547 --> 01:54:51,259
Yes, Your Honor.
Defense calls Dr. Willard Tyrell Bass.
1596
01:54:55,973 --> 01:54:58,432
- Buddy, have you seen Roark?
- Not yet.
1597
01:55:03,230 --> 01:55:05,898
Doctor, would you explain to the jury...
1598
01:55:06,066 --> 01:55:09,860
the effect his daughter s rape
had on Mr. Hailey s condition?
1599
01:55:10,279 --> 01:55:12,405
Tonya s rape caused a relapse...
1600
01:55:12,573 --> 01:55:14,740
a temporary break with reality.
1601
01:55:15,409 --> 01:55:18,452
But yesterday, a Dr. Rodeheaver...
1602
01:55:18,620 --> 01:55:21,664
suggested that Mr. Hailey s
act of calculation was...
1603
01:55:21,832 --> 01:55:23,583

the very definition of sanity.


1604
01:55:23,750 --> 01:55:25,835
That s ridiculous.
1605
01:55:26,003 --> 01:55:29,839
Many of the most famous
schizophrenics are calculating.
1606
01:55:30,007 --> 01:55:31,841
John Hinckley, for example.
1607
01:55:32,009 --> 01:55:33,050
Calculating.
1608
01:55:33,218 --> 01:55:34,719
And legally insane.
1609
01:55:35,053 --> 01:55:37,888
All right, so, Dr. Bass,
how would you diagnose Mr. Hailey...
1610
01:55:38,056 --> 01:55:39,390
at the time of the murder?
1611
01:55:39,558 --> 01:55:43,853
Mr. Hailey experienced a recurrence
of a dissociative condition...
1612
01:55:44,021 --> 01:55:47,898
as a result of the trauma
caused by the rape of his daughter.
1613
01:55:48,317 --> 01:55:51,861
Now, since Mr. Hailey was unaware
of the reality of his actions...
1614
01:55:52,029 --> 01:55:54,405
he could not tell right from wrong.
1615
01:55:54,573 --> 01:55:57,908
Nor could he understand
the consequences of his actions.
1616
01:55:58,076 --> 01:56:01,287
He was, therefore, legally insane.

1617
01:56:02,873 --> 01:56:04,457
Could not tell right from wrong...
1618
01:56:04,625 --> 01:56:07,501
nor understand the consequences
of his actions.
1619
01:56:08,045 --> 01:56:11,005
Therefore, legally, insane.
1620
01:56:11,673 --> 01:56:15,551
Thank you, Dr. Bass.
Your Honor, I have no further questions.
1621
01:56:16,136 --> 01:56:17,303
Mr. Buckley?
1622
01:56:19,097 --> 01:56:21,349
- Mr. Buckley.
- Yes?
1623
01:56:21,975 --> 01:56:23,225
Your witness.
1624
01:56:24,186 --> 01:56:27,021
Oh. I m sorry, excuse me.
Thank you, Your Honor.
1625
01:56:28,732 --> 01:56:31,150
- Good morning.
- Good morning.
1626
01:56:31,318 --> 01:56:36,072
Dr. Bass, could you please
state for the record your full name?
1627
01:56:36,239 --> 01:56:38,574
Willard Tyrell Bass.
1628
01:56:38,742 --> 01:56:41,952
Tyrell Bass. That s a very unique name.
1629
01:56:42,579 --> 01:56:47,500
Now, doctor,
have you ever been convicted of a felony?
1630

01:56:47,668 --> 01:56:48,959


No, of course not.
1631
01:56:49,127 --> 01:56:51,295
- You re certain?
- Yes.
1632
01:56:51,463 --> 01:56:56,092
As certain of that as you are of the testimony
you ve just given before this jury?
1633
01:56:56,259 --> 01:56:57,259
Of course.
1634
01:56:57,427 --> 01:56:59,845
So let me understand this now...
1635
01:57:00,013 --> 01:57:02,390
since you are under oath.
1636
01:57:02,933 --> 01:57:07,478
You re telling me, and this jury,
that on October 17th, 1960...
1637
01:57:07,646 --> 01:57:09,980
you were not
convicted of statutory rape?
1638
01:57:10,148 --> 01:57:11,482
Objection, Your Honor!
1639
01:57:13,527 --> 01:57:14,944
Dr. Bass is not on trial here.
1640
01:57:15,112 --> 01:57:17,822
This goes to the heart
of the credibility of the witness.
1641
01:57:17,989 --> 01:57:21,450
- Overruled. Continue, Mr. Buckley.
- Thank you.
1642
01:57:21,618 --> 01:57:23,577
Now, doctor...
1643
01:57:24,788 --> 01:57:26,914
were you convicted of statutory rape?

1644
01:57:27,457 --> 01:57:29,208
You got the wrong man.
1645
01:57:29,376 --> 01:57:30,584
Really?
1646
01:57:30,752 --> 01:57:33,129
I have some mighty interesting
photographs of you...
1647
01:57:33,296 --> 01:57:35,715
taken with a female underage...
1648
01:57:35,882 --> 01:57:39,969
in a motel by the Dallas Police
Department on September 11th, 1960.
1649
01:57:40,137 --> 01:57:45,099
Would you like to look at these images
and see if they refresh your memory?
1650
01:57:47,769 --> 01:57:49,103
No, I didn t think so.
1651
01:57:49,271 --> 01:57:53,065
Your Honor, we would like to enter into
evidence these court and police records...
1652
01:57:53,233 --> 01:57:59,029
showing that on September 15th, 1960,
this man, one Tyrell Bass...
1653
01:57:59,197 --> 01:58:02,742
pled guilty to statutory rape.
1654
01:58:02,909 --> 01:58:05,536
Now, doctor,
I m gonna ask you one last time...
1655
01:58:05,704 --> 01:58:10,416
were you or were you not
convicted of statutory rape?
1656
01:58:11,042 --> 01:58:14,044
- Well, I can explain...
Not interested in your explanation.

1657
01:58:14,212 --> 01:58:15,921
Answer the question, yes or no.
1658
01:58:18,300 --> 01:58:19,675
Yes. Yes, I was.
1659
01:58:25,974 --> 01:58:27,558
That s enough.
1660
01:58:27,726 --> 01:58:30,019
I have nothing further.
1661
01:58:33,815 --> 01:58:35,858
Redirect, Mr. Brigance?
1662
01:58:38,278 --> 01:58:39,361
None, Your Honor.
1663
01:58:39,529 --> 01:58:42,406
Court will recess one hour for lunch.
1664
01:58:42,699 --> 01:58:45,201
You told me you knew him,
he was a credible witness.
1665
01:58:45,368 --> 01:58:47,369
I didn t know. The record was expunged.
1666
01:58:47,537 --> 01:58:49,663
Buckley really outdid himself this time.
1667
01:58:49,831 --> 01:58:52,416
Damn. Lucien, I was counting on you.
1668
01:58:52,584 --> 01:58:54,668
- And I can t win...
- You wanted this case.
1669
01:58:54,836 --> 01:58:55,878
Well, you got it.
1670
01:58:56,046 --> 01:58:59,715
It isn t easy saving the world
one case at a time, but you stick with it.

1671
01:58:59,883 --> 01:59:03,093
You might just have a knack for it.
Don t do what I did. Don t quit.
1672
01:59:03,261 --> 01:59:05,095
What are you talking about, quit?
1673
01:59:05,263 --> 01:59:07,932
- You re a hero, Lucien.
- Oh, hero, my ass.
1674
01:59:08,099 --> 01:59:11,560
Do you think the world needed me
beating cops heads on that picket line?
1675
01:59:11,728 --> 01:59:15,648
I was needed here, in that courtroom.
1676
01:59:15,982 --> 01:59:17,066
And I let them push me.
1677
01:59:17,234 --> 01:59:19,443
I gave them an excuse to kick me out...
1678
01:59:19,611 --> 01:59:22,446
and now I can never
plead a case in there again.
1679
01:59:22,614 --> 01:59:24,073
But you can.
1680
01:59:24,241 --> 01:59:25,574
You re an attorney.
1681
01:59:25,742 --> 01:59:27,076
Be proud.
1682
01:59:27,244 --> 01:59:31,372
Your job is to find justice, no matter
how well she may hide herself from you.
1683
01:59:32,874 --> 01:59:34,834
So you go on in there...
1684
01:59:35,001 --> 01:59:36,418
and you do your job.

1685
01:59:37,921 --> 01:59:39,380
Hurry up, now.
1686
01:59:39,548 --> 01:59:41,841
They ll be starting without you.
1687
01:59:46,429 --> 01:59:47,596
Come with me.
1688
01:59:49,432 --> 01:59:50,724
I can t, Jake.
1689
01:59:52,561 --> 01:59:54,270
I love you...
1690
01:59:54,437 --> 01:59:55,563
but I can t.
1691
01:59:56,106 --> 01:59:57,147
You know that.
1692
01:59:57,315 --> 02:00:00,317
I ll never go in another courtroom again.
1693
02:00:01,027 --> 02:00:02,486
And I can t be you, Lucien.
1694
02:00:03,738 --> 02:00:05,948
Don t be me.
1695
02:00:06,116 --> 02:00:08,450
Be better than me.
1696
02:00:10,745 --> 02:00:14,206
All rise
for the Honorable Judge Omar Noose.
1697
02:00:24,092 --> 02:00:26,343
And how did you feel?
1698
02:00:27,012 --> 02:00:29,388
I felt, um....
1699
02:00:32,017 --> 02:00:34,101

I don t know.
1700
02:00:35,687 --> 02:00:38,272
It was like I was outside myself...
1701
02:00:38,440 --> 02:00:40,733
watching myself.
1702
02:00:41,693 --> 02:00:45,779
All the while I kept hearing my baby say:
1703
02:00:46,281 --> 02:00:48,824
"I called for you, Daddy.
1704
02:00:48,992 --> 02:00:55,497
When them men was hurting me,
I called for you over and over...
1705
02:00:55,665 --> 02:00:58,000
but you didn t never come."
1706
02:01:04,174 --> 02:01:06,175
Thank you, Mr. Hailey.
1707
02:01:06,968 --> 02:01:09,678
I have no further questions, Your Honor.
1708
02:01:11,181 --> 02:01:12,723
You have an emergency phone call.
1709
02:01:12,891 --> 02:01:13,933
Mr. Buckley.
1710
02:01:22,317 --> 02:01:24,193
Mr. Hailey...
1711
02:01:25,362 --> 02:01:30,199
before you stepped outside yourself
to watch yourself shoot Willard and Cobb...
1712
02:01:30,367 --> 02:01:34,870
were you aware that if convicted
they might be freed in only 10 years?
1713
02:01:35,038 --> 02:01:36,997
Yes, I heard people say that. Yes, sir.

1714
02:01:37,165 --> 02:01:40,125
Do you think men who kidnap
a child should be free in 10 years?
1715
02:01:40,293 --> 02:01:43,671
- No.
- Think men who rape a child should be free?
1716
02:01:43,838 --> 02:01:44,880
No, sir.
1717
02:01:45,048 --> 02:01:48,050
Do you think two men who hang a child
should be free in 10 years?
1718
02:01:48,218 --> 02:01:50,511
- No.
- What should happen? What would be fair?
1719
02:01:50,679 --> 02:01:53,138
- Objection.
- Do you think they deserve to die?
1720
02:01:53,306 --> 02:01:55,724
- Now, Mr. Buckley...
- Carl Lee don t answer that!
1721
02:01:55,892 --> 02:01:58,852
Yes, they deserved to die
and I hope they burn in hell!
1722
02:02:15,078 --> 02:02:17,830
I have nothing further, Your Honor.
1723
02:02:21,459 --> 02:02:24,294
Summations begin tomorrow.
1724
02:02:26,006 --> 02:02:27,715
Court adjourned.
1725
02:02:34,597 --> 02:02:37,641
Jake, they found Roark.
1726
02:02:59,330 --> 02:03:00,956
- Ellen....
- Hmm.

1727
02:03:07,380 --> 02:03:08,881
Ellen.
1728
02:03:10,467 --> 02:03:12,384
So...
1729
02:03:13,511 --> 02:03:16,180
this is what I had to do
to get you to call me "Ellen"?
1730
02:03:18,808 --> 02:03:20,017
I m so sorry.
1731
02:03:20,185 --> 02:03:21,977
This is all my fault.
1732
02:03:22,145 --> 02:03:23,479
No.
1733
02:03:23,646 --> 02:03:26,273
Don t sweat it, really.
1734
02:03:27,275 --> 02:03:30,027
They didn t...
They didn t hurt anything that won t heal.
1735
02:03:30,195 --> 02:03:31,862
Nothing.
1736
02:03:33,323 --> 02:03:36,450
Besides, um, Dr., uh...
1737
02:03:37,660 --> 02:03:40,454
What s-His-Name
said I ll be out in a couple days...
1738
02:03:40,622 --> 02:03:41,747
so I m fine.
1739
02:03:45,835 --> 02:03:47,127
How d we do?
1740
02:03:49,047 --> 02:03:51,965
Bass turned out to be a felon.

1741
02:03:52,759 --> 02:03:56,470
Carl Lee got trapped on the stand
by Buckley.
1742
02:03:59,349 --> 02:04:02,101
People been terrorized, Roark.
1743
02:04:02,268 --> 02:04:04,019
Beaten.
1744
02:04:05,939 --> 02:04:08,315
Killed. It...
1745
02:04:08,900 --> 02:04:10,651
It s not worth it. It s not.
1746
02:04:13,238 --> 02:04:16,907
It s only not worth it
if Carl Lee goes to the gas chamber.
1747
02:04:20,453 --> 02:04:23,580
Listen, this case is not over
until the summation.
1748
02:04:23,748 --> 02:04:25,791
Remember that.
1749
02:04:26,167 --> 02:04:27,709
Okay?
1750
02:04:29,003 --> 02:04:32,881
And you ve got one big fat chance...
1751
02:04:33,800 --> 02:04:34,967
to reinvent yourself.
1752
02:04:35,844 --> 02:04:41,140
To make that jury see this whole case...
This whole case through your eyes.
1753
02:04:47,897 --> 02:04:49,273
And they re good eyes.
1754
02:04:54,737 --> 02:04:57,030
Now, get out of here, go to work.

1755
02:04:59,159 --> 02:05:00,617
I ll keep in touch with you.
1756
02:05:01,035 --> 02:05:02,369
No, you won t.
1757
02:05:02,537 --> 02:05:04,079
Big liar.
1758
02:05:13,965 --> 02:05:16,425
Win or lose, Roark...
1759
02:05:17,802 --> 02:05:19,678
we make one hell of a team.
1760
02:05:21,055 --> 02:05:23,182
We might have.
1761
02:05:24,267 --> 02:05:26,226
We really might have.
1762
02:05:30,523 --> 02:05:33,400
You really want to kiss me right now,
don t you?
1763
02:05:34,986 --> 02:05:37,112
Yes, I do.
1764
02:05:58,968 --> 02:06:00,093
Undecided?
1765
02:06:02,722 --> 02:06:04,348
Guilty?
1766
02:06:42,720 --> 02:06:45,514
Hey, Max. Hey.
1767
02:06:52,689 --> 02:06:53,814
Where s Hannah?
1768
02:06:53,982 --> 02:06:56,608
I left her at Mother and Daddy s.
1769
02:06:58,236 --> 02:06:59,403
How did you get here?

1770
02:07:00,029 --> 02:07:01,405
Drove.
1771
02:07:02,031 --> 02:07:03,532
In the storm?
1772
02:07:05,868 --> 02:07:09,204
Got something to say,
it needs to be said in person.
1773
02:07:13,918 --> 02:07:17,504
The truth is, I ve been blaming you
for all that s happened.
1774
02:07:20,425 --> 02:07:23,343
But it s not your fault.
You didn t kill those boys.
1775
02:07:28,850 --> 02:07:30,851
You were trying to make things right.
1776
02:07:33,021 --> 02:07:35,063
I know that now.
1777
02:07:40,820 --> 02:07:43,613
I thought you took this case
because you wanted to prove...
1778
02:07:43,781 --> 02:07:46,408
what a bigtime lawyer you were.
1779
02:07:47,201 --> 02:07:49,286
But I was wrong.
1780
02:07:52,915 --> 02:07:55,751
You took this case because...
1781
02:07:55,918 --> 02:07:58,128
if those boys...
1782
02:08:00,506 --> 02:08:05,302
had hurt Hannah
the way that they hurt Tonya...
1783
02:08:05,470 --> 02:08:07,387

you would ve killed them yourself.


1784
02:08:10,433 --> 02:08:12,142
Baby.
1785
02:08:14,562 --> 02:08:17,356
Baby, come here.
1786
02:08:17,523 --> 02:08:19,358
Come here.
1787
02:08:21,819 --> 02:08:24,154
I love you, Jake.
1788
02:08:25,573 --> 02:08:27,949
I thought I was gonna lose you.
1789
02:08:52,600 --> 02:08:55,310
We re gonna lose this case, Carl Lee.
1790
02:08:57,855 --> 02:09:01,983
There are no points of law to argue here.
I wanna cop a plea.
1791
02:09:03,986 --> 02:09:05,904
Maybe Buckley will cop us...
1792
02:09:06,072 --> 02:09:09,449
a second-degree murder
and we can get you just life in prison.
1793
02:09:11,285 --> 02:09:14,996
Jake, I... I can t do no life in prison.
1794
02:09:15,164 --> 02:09:17,582
You gotta get me off.
Man, if it was you on trial...
1795
02:09:17,750 --> 02:09:19,418
It s not me.
1796
02:09:20,336 --> 02:09:21,711
We re not the same, Carl Lee.
1797
02:09:24,632 --> 02:09:27,884
The jury has to identify

with the defendant.


1798
02:09:28,052 --> 02:09:29,803
They see you, they see a yard worker.
1799
02:09:29,971 --> 02:09:33,974
They see me, they see an attorney.
I live in town. You live on the hill.
1800
02:09:34,142 --> 02:09:37,185
Oh, you white and I m black.
1801
02:09:39,647 --> 02:09:41,356
See, Jake?
1802
02:09:41,732 --> 02:09:43,942
You think just like them.
1803
02:09:45,027 --> 02:09:47,404
That s why I picked you.
1804
02:09:48,406 --> 02:09:51,074
You re one of them, don t you see?
1805
02:09:51,242 --> 02:09:53,577
You think you ain t,
because you eat in Claude s...
1806
02:09:53,744 --> 02:09:58,457
and you re out there trying to get me
off on TV, talking about black and white.
1807
02:09:58,624 --> 02:10:00,584
But the fact is...
1808
02:10:00,751 --> 02:10:03,462
you re just like all the rest of them.
1809
02:10:03,629 --> 02:10:06,590
When you look at me,
you don t see a man.
1810
02:10:06,757 --> 02:10:08,675
You see a black man.
1811
02:10:09,510 --> 02:10:12,929

Carl Lee, I am your friend.


1812
02:10:13,097 --> 02:10:14,848
We ain t no friends, Jake.
1813
02:10:16,142 --> 02:10:19,144
We re on different sides of the line.
1814
02:10:19,312 --> 02:10:23,732
I ain t never seen you in my part of town.
I bet you don t even know where I live.
1815
02:10:25,526 --> 02:10:28,570
Our daughters, Jake,
they ain t never gonna play together.
1816
02:10:28,738 --> 02:10:31,114
Now, what are you talking about?
1817
02:10:33,367 --> 02:10:36,578
America is a war...
1818
02:10:36,746 --> 02:10:39,039
and you are on the other side.
1819
02:10:40,791 --> 02:10:43,627
How a black man
ever gonna get a fair trial...
1820
02:10:43,794 --> 02:10:46,796
with the enemy on the bench
and the jury box?
1821
02:10:46,964 --> 02:10:50,425
My life in white hands.
1822
02:10:50,676 --> 02:10:51,760
You, Jake.
1823
02:10:52,470 --> 02:10:54,387
That s how.
1824
02:10:54,555 --> 02:10:58,767
You my secret weapon
because you re one of the bad guys.
1825

02:10:58,935 --> 02:11:01,811


You don t mean to be, but you are.
1826
02:11:01,979 --> 02:11:04,272
It s how you was raised.
1827
02:11:04,440 --> 02:11:08,777
Nigger, Negro, black, African-American.
1828
02:11:08,945 --> 02:11:11,071
No matter how you see me...
1829
02:11:11,239 --> 02:11:13,949
you see me as different.
1830
02:11:14,116 --> 02:11:17,452
You see me like that jury sees me.
1831
02:11:17,620 --> 02:11:19,412
You are them.
1832
02:11:20,206 --> 02:11:23,208
Now, throw out your points of law, Jake.
1833
02:11:24,043 --> 02:11:28,296
If you was on that jury...
1834
02:11:28,464 --> 02:11:33,093
what would it take
to convince you to set me free?
1835
02:11:35,513 --> 02:11:38,473
That s how you ll save my ass.
1836
02:11:39,058 --> 02:11:41,226
That s how you ll save us both.
1837
02:11:45,773 --> 02:11:50,277
Is Carl Lee Hailey insane?
1838
02:11:51,153 --> 02:11:53,572
It s a notion so outrageous...
1839
02:11:53,739 --> 02:11:58,076
the only witness
the defense could produce to support it...

1840
02:11:58,244 --> 02:12:00,245
was a convicted felon.
1841
02:12:00,997 --> 02:12:03,623
No. Carl Lee Hailey is not insane.
1842
02:12:03,791 --> 02:12:07,043
This is a man
who is a confessed murderer.
1843
02:12:08,296 --> 02:12:13,133
This is a man who admitted
on this stand...
1844
02:12:13,301 --> 02:12:16,511
to carrying out the sentences
he believed the alleged rapists...
1845
02:12:16,679 --> 02:12:18,680
of his daughter deserved.
1846
02:12:18,848 --> 02:12:21,182
He s taken justice out of your hands.
1847
02:12:23,936 --> 02:12:25,270
And put it in his own.
1848
02:12:26,105 --> 02:12:30,775
And with those hands,
he took the lives of two young men.
1849
02:12:33,863 --> 02:12:36,990
We feel terrible
over what happened to his daughter.
1850
02:12:37,491 --> 02:12:39,242
But feeling terrible...
1851
02:12:39,410 --> 02:12:43,788
and knowing something is wrong
does not give any of us...
1852
02:12:44,290 --> 02:12:45,915
a right to kill.
1853

02:12:47,543 --> 02:12:49,753


Ladies and gentlemen, your duty is clear.
1854
02:12:52,840 --> 02:12:55,550
All in this courtroom know the truth.
1855
02:12:55,968 --> 02:12:59,012
All in this state know the truth.
1856
02:12:59,930 --> 02:13:04,851
Now you need only find the courage
to speak the words:
1857
02:13:05,227 --> 02:13:08,897
"Carl Lee Hailey is guilty."
1858
02:13:09,899 --> 02:13:12,609
Guilty. Guilty.
1859
02:13:14,904 --> 02:13:17,280
State rests, Your Honor.
1860
02:13:33,089 --> 02:13:36,883
Now, I had a great summation
all worked out...
1861
02:13:37,093 --> 02:13:39,636
full of some sharp lawyering.
1862
02:13:40,888 --> 02:13:42,222
But I m not going to read it.
1863
02:13:43,641 --> 02:13:45,308
I m here to apologize.
1864
02:13:45,476 --> 02:13:48,937
I am young, and I am inexperienced.
1865
02:13:49,563 --> 02:13:54,526
But you cannot
hold Carl Lee Hailey responsible...
1866
02:13:54,985 --> 02:13:56,528
for my shortcomings.
1867
02:13:57,738 --> 02:14:00,407

But you see,


in all this legal maneuvering...
1868
02:14:00,574 --> 02:14:02,951
something has gotten lost.
1869
02:14:03,119 --> 02:14:05,829
And that something is the truth.
1870
02:14:09,625 --> 02:14:14,129
Now, it is incumbent upon us lawyers
not to just talk about the truth...
1871
02:14:14,296 --> 02:14:18,049
but to actually seek it,
to find it, to live it.
1872
02:14:19,760 --> 02:14:21,261
My teacher taught me that.
1873
02:14:23,681 --> 02:14:25,640
Let s take Dr. Bass, for example.
1874
02:14:26,267 --> 02:14:29,644
Obviously, I would ve never knowingly
put a convicted felon on the stand.
1875
02:14:29,812 --> 02:14:31,229
I hope you can believe that.
1876
02:14:31,689 --> 02:14:33,148
But what is the truth?
1877
02:14:33,315 --> 02:14:36,234
That... That he s a disgraced liar?
1878
02:14:36,402 --> 02:14:38,319
What if I told you...
1879
02:14:38,487 --> 02:14:42,157
that the woman he was accused
of raping was 17, he was 23...
1880
02:14:42,324 --> 02:14:45,201
that she later became his wife,
bore his child...

1881
02:14:45,369 --> 02:14:46,995
and is still married to the man?
1882
02:14:47,163 --> 02:14:51,166
Does that make his testimony
more or less true?
1883
02:14:55,463 --> 02:14:57,255
What is it in us that seeks the truth?
1884
02:14:58,841 --> 02:15:00,759
Is it our minds?
1885
02:15:01,385 --> 02:15:02,886
Or is it our hearts?
1886
02:15:06,766 --> 02:15:10,143
I set out to prove a black man
could receive a fair trial in the South...
1887
02:15:10,311 --> 02:15:13,480
that we are all equal
in the eyes of the law.
1888
02:15:15,191 --> 02:15:16,775
That s not the truth.
1889
02:15:16,942 --> 02:15:19,194
Because the eyes of the law
are human eyes...
1890
02:15:19,361 --> 02:15:23,323
yours and mine, and until we
can see each other as equals...
1891
02:15:23,491 --> 02:15:25,825
justice is never going to be
evenhanded.
1892
02:15:25,993 --> 02:15:29,829
It will remain nothing more than
a reflection of our own prejudices.
1893
02:15:30,122 --> 02:15:32,540
So until that day...
1894

02:15:32,708 --> 02:15:35,960


we have a duty under God
to seek the truth...
1895
02:15:37,838 --> 02:15:39,964
not with our eyes,
and not with our minds...
1896
02:15:40,132 --> 02:15:43,718
where fear and hate turn
commonality into prejudice...
1897
02:15:43,886 --> 02:15:46,095
but with our hearts...
1898
02:15:46,388 --> 02:15:48,723
where we don t know better.
1899
02:15:53,062 --> 02:15:55,480
I wanna tell you a story.
1900
02:15:57,233 --> 02:15:59,943
And I ask you all to close your eyes...
1901
02:16:01,570 --> 02:16:03,822
while I tell you this story.
1902
02:16:07,284 --> 02:16:11,162
I want you to listen to me.
I want you to listen to yourselves.
1903
02:16:15,209 --> 02:16:18,127
Go ahead. Close your eyes, please.
1904
02:16:23,300 --> 02:16:26,094
This is a story about a little girl...
1905
02:16:27,012 --> 02:16:30,765
walking home from the grocery store
one sunny afternoon.
1906
02:16:32,101 --> 02:16:34,185
I want you to picture this little girl.
1907
02:16:37,606 --> 02:16:40,024
Suddenly, a truck races up.

1908
02:16:41,777 --> 02:16:43,361
Two men jump out and grab her.
1909
02:16:45,990 --> 02:16:49,117
Drag her into a nearby field...
1910
02:16:51,996 --> 02:16:53,371
and they tie her up.
1911
02:16:57,251 --> 02:16:59,252
And they rip her clothes from her body.
1912
02:17:02,089 --> 02:17:04,382
Now they climb on.
1913
02:17:05,259 --> 02:17:07,468
First one, then the other.
1914
02:17:09,471 --> 02:17:10,555
Raping her.
1915
02:17:15,519 --> 02:17:20,481
Shattering everything innocent and pure
with a vicious thrust...
1916
02:17:21,483 --> 02:17:24,861
in a fog of drunken breath and sweat.
1917
02:17:28,782 --> 02:17:30,700
And when they re done...
1918
02:17:31,827 --> 02:17:34,913
after they ve killed her tiny womb...
1919
02:17:37,082 --> 02:17:40,376
murdered any chance
for her to bear children...
1920
02:17:40,544 --> 02:17:43,212
to have life beyond her own...
1921
02:17:46,675 --> 02:17:48,801
they decide to use her
for target practice.
1922

02:17:51,680 --> 02:17:54,849


So they start throwing
full beer cans at her.
1923
02:17:56,852 --> 02:17:59,187
They throw them so hard...
1924
02:17:59,855 --> 02:18:03,316
that it tears the flesh
all the way to her bones.
1925
02:18:09,490 --> 02:18:11,115
Then they urinate on her.
1926
02:18:15,871 --> 02:18:17,246
Now comes the hanging.
1927
02:18:22,419 --> 02:18:24,253
They have a rope.
1928
02:18:25,547 --> 02:18:27,382
They tie a noose.
1929
02:18:28,550 --> 02:18:31,886
Imagine the noose coiling
tight around her neck...
1930
02:18:32,429 --> 02:18:35,056
and a sudden blinding jerk.
1931
02:18:36,141 --> 02:18:39,018
She s pulled into the air
and her feet and legs go kicking....
1932
02:18:39,186 --> 02:18:40,937
They don t find the ground.
1933
02:18:43,107 --> 02:18:44,983
The hanging branch...
1934
02:18:45,150 --> 02:18:47,110
isn t strong enough.
1935
02:18:48,779 --> 02:18:51,406
It snaps and she falls...
1936

02:18:51,782 --> 02:18:53,116


back to the earth.
1937
02:18:57,121 --> 02:18:59,122
So they pick her up...
1938
02:19:00,249 --> 02:19:02,583
throw her in the back of the truck...
1939
02:19:04,420 --> 02:19:07,588
drive out to Foggy Creek Bridge...
1940
02:19:08,424 --> 02:19:09,799
pitch her over the edge.
1941
02:19:13,012 --> 02:19:17,890
And she drops some 30 feet
down to the creek bottom below.
1942
02:19:25,399 --> 02:19:27,275
Can you see her?
1943
02:19:31,071 --> 02:19:32,739
Her raped...
1944
02:19:32,906 --> 02:19:34,657
beaten...
1945
02:19:34,825 --> 02:19:37,035
broken body...
1946
02:19:40,122 --> 02:19:42,498
soaked in their urine...
1947
02:19:43,125 --> 02:19:45,460
soaked in their semen...
1948
02:19:47,463 --> 02:19:49,297
soaked in her blood.
1949
02:19:50,299 --> 02:19:52,175
Left to die.
1950
02:19:55,179 --> 02:19:57,055
Can you see her?

1951
02:20:01,060 --> 02:20:03,311
I want you to picture...
1952
02:20:05,105 --> 02:20:07,023
that little girl.
1953
02:20:25,751 --> 02:20:27,585
Now imagine she s white.
1954
02:20:49,733 --> 02:20:51,526
The defense rests, Your Honor.
1955
02:21:21,890 --> 02:21:23,474
Innocent! He s innocent!
1956
02:21:23,642 --> 02:21:25,226
Innocent! He s innocent!
1957
02:21:25,394 --> 02:21:26,561
Hailey s innocent!
1958
02:21:34,236 --> 02:21:35,361
He s innocent!
1959
02:21:45,873 --> 02:21:47,707
We won! We won!
1960
02:21:47,875 --> 02:21:50,126
Ellen, we won! Aren t you happy?
1961
02:21:50,294 --> 02:21:56,132
Oh, my God, Ellen, you have to be happy.
He s innocent. Carl Lee is innocent.
1962
02:21:57,509 --> 02:21:58,843
He s coming home.
1963
02:21:59,011 --> 02:22:00,303
Jake.
1964
02:22:01,597 --> 02:22:03,431
That was....
1965
02:22:04,141 --> 02:22:05,975
That was....

1966
02:22:07,186 --> 02:22:09,520
Hey, I m one of the bad guys, remember?
1967
02:22:12,149 --> 02:22:15,443
- Thank you.
- Thanks.
1968
02:22:25,162 --> 02:22:27,413
Freddie Lee Cobb!
1969
02:22:30,125 --> 02:22:32,543
We got something to talk about.
1970
02:22:32,711 --> 02:22:34,253
Hastings...
1971
02:22:34,421 --> 02:22:37,006
you belong over there with them.
1972
02:22:38,634 --> 02:22:40,468
Get over.
1973
02:22:52,147 --> 02:22:54,023
Congratulations, counselor.
1974
02:22:54,191 --> 02:22:55,816
Thank you.
1975
02:23:17,256 --> 02:23:19,548
You must be overwhelmed right now.
1976
02:23:48,704 --> 02:23:50,788
- Give me...
- After you...
1977
02:23:50,956 --> 02:23:52,331
Yeah.
1978
02:23:55,127 --> 02:23:57,253
- Was I good or what?
- All right.
1979
02:23:57,421 --> 02:24:00,548
Oh. Ha-ha-ha.

1980
02:24:08,098 --> 02:24:09,432
Here you go.
1981
02:24:09,599 --> 02:24:13,144
- Carl Lee. Look.
- What?
1982
02:24:37,044 --> 02:24:38,544
Well.
1983
02:24:38,712 --> 02:24:39,754
Hello.
1984
02:24:39,921 --> 02:24:41,005
- Hi.
- Hi there.
1985
02:24:41,173 --> 02:24:42,590
Hannah, this is Miss Hailey.
1986
02:24:42,758 --> 02:24:43,799
- This is Hannah.
- Hi.
1987
02:24:43,967 --> 02:24:46,927
- Hi, Hannah. Ain t she so pretty.
- Thank you.
1988
02:24:47,095 --> 02:24:49,722
- Brought you some peach cobbler.
- Oh, thank you.
1989
02:24:49,890 --> 02:24:51,766
Come on in. Come in.
1990
02:24:53,560 --> 02:24:55,186
Howdy.
1991
02:25:04,946 --> 02:25:07,365
Hannah, this is my daughter, Tonya.
1992
02:25:07,532 --> 02:25:10,701
- Hi, Tonya.
- Hi, nice to meet you, Hannah.
1993
02:25:14,247 --> 02:25:16,332

Just thought our kids


could play together.
