Above is a somewhat creaky teaser-trailer for 'The Verdict' which was clearly made before the film's release for promotional purposes. But for whom? Where was it shown? I don't know. The hell with it. The year is 1983 and we have a lovely interview with James Mason, a strange one with Paul Newman (he appears to be a little medicated...at least to my eyes) and none at all with Sidney Lumet (perhaps he was busy?) But there is nice on-set footage of Lumet and stirring, 1980s narration by somebody who probably doesn't remember getting hired for the gig...
