   MeiDei  2013 HBO Movie
A record producer hires Bruce Cutler to defend him when he's accused of murder. Cutler persuades Linda Kenney Baden to advise him. While the prosecution's story is contradicted by facts in the case, there is convincing circumstantial evidence against her client, not the least of which is his appearance. As Baden gradually takes over the defense, even as she is ill with pneumonia, she must find a way to introduce ballistic evidence in a dramatic enough fashion to plant doubt in the jury's mind. Calling the accused to testify may be the only way to stage the evidence. She coaches him and rehearses him: can he (and she ) pull it off? Based on actual events.

   MeiDei  1948 Western comedy (not to be confused with the 1922 silent movie with Buster Keaton )

But when Jane's partner is killed, she takes up with bumbling dentist "Painless" Peter Potter and passes him off as a gifted gunslinger.

   StormCnter  Yes. Good movie. "La Cage Aux Folles" was such fun, too. I haven't seen the stage musical, however. Mei wins and is awarded a music box featuring a rotating, chirping, caged canary.

   StormCnter  It was the highest grossing movie of 1976. The film was shot in 28 days. The movie is ranked #4 on The American Film Institute's Most Inspiring Movies of All Time. The single most expensive cost on the film was make-up. The star permanently flattened the knuckles on one hand in one scene. In a climactic scene, the star pulled a tendon while running through the streets and was hauled to the hospital in a wheelbarrow.

What is the title?

   MeiDei  Yes. Signourney Weaver, Harrison Ford & Melanie Griffith along with Kevin Spacey & Joan Cusack. I don't think you want to fly around with Harrison, so how about you get to take any day off when otherwise the work would be tiring.
