Smoke and Mirrors : A Teaching Film on Hearsay and Evidentiary Issues Out of Stock
Smoke & Mirrors is a mock trial film written by Judge Joseph F. Anderson. This entertaining and practical movie is designed to be a powerful teaching tool to help litigation attorneys understand the nuances of the hearsay rule, its applications, and its many exceptions in a trial setting.
The plot centers around the wealthy socialite, Maxwell Blair, who, while hosting a dinner party was murdered at the same moment a lightning bolt struck the mansion, causing the lights to go out. Blair's new wife and sole beneficiary has been charged with homicide. The plot thickens when it's revealed during trial that several of the dinner party guests also had motives for Blair's demise.
Throughout the film, viewers will recognize a number of local judges and attorneys, as well as clues and clichés from media favorites such as Mission Impossible, A Few Good Men, The Da Vinci Code, Caddyshack, Perry Mason, Dragnet, Young Frankenstein and, of course, My Cousin Vinny.
