My favourite film of all time is still Paul Newman's "The Verdict".
Sidney Lumet directed it.
I watch that film time and time again and can only begin to classify the suffering of the sister.
Frank Galvin is my hero. A down and out ambulance chasing bum that rose up and realised his role in life, that of a crusader. He saw the sword and he picked it up. He realised his role and accepted it.
Normal people can only come close to this superhero. But Frank Galvin is indeed, us and our hopes and dreams realised.
But remember, Frank Galvin is also the sum total of experience and that is the weapon he applies to the lawyer Concannon. The so called Prince of F&*^%ing Darkness.
I so love this film because I see a guy on the cheeks of his ass rising up to accept a nobler cause despite booze or anything.
Frank Galvin is a drunk, a boozehound, and an alcoholic. But he is still a superhero despite the fact that he shouldn't be.
Did he win? You have to watch the film and be prepared.
I think Frank Galvin deserves his own comic.
