A Legal Circus

I’ve written before about Petrocelli, the Emmy-nominated, 1974-1976 legal drama starring Barry Newman as Anthony J. Petrocelli, a young, Harvard-educated, and Italian-American attorney who ditches his high-paying East Coast practice in favor of moving to a dinky town in Arizona with his wife. And I knew that the series had resurrected a protagonist Newman portrayed in a 1970 big-screen film called The Lawyer. But I have never actually seen The Lawyer. I soon shall, though, for as Marty McKee explains in his blog, while it “was never released on VHS or DVD,” the movie is now “available through Netflix instant streaming.”
