"...And Justice For All" is a fy|1979 film directed by Norman Jewison. It tells the story of a Baltimore defense lawyer named Arthur Kirkland (played by Al Pacino). In the film, Kirkland finds himself blackmailed into defending corrupt judge Henry T. Fleming (played by John Forsythe) for a rape charge, even though the two men personally loathe each other.

The movie also stars Jack Warden, Lee Strasberg, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Lahti, Craig T. Nelson and Thomas G. Waites. It was also 75-year old character actor Sam Levene's final film, after a 40+ year acting career. The movie was written by Valerie Curtin and Barry Levinson.

This film includes a well-known scene in which Kirkland shouts at Judge Rayford, "I'm" out of order? "You're" out of order! "The whole trial" is out of order! "They're" out of order!" The closing courtroom scene was filmed on the first take.

"...And Justice For All" received two Academy Award nominations, for the best actor in a leading role (Pacino) and for best original screenplay (Curtin and Levinson). Pacino also received a Golden Globe nomination for his performance. This film represented the second time Pacino was nominated for these awards in a movie in which he acted alongside his famed acting teacher, Lee Strasberg, the other being "The Godfather Part II".
