Quiz Description

Lawyers are routinely portrayed on the silver screen. Some of these big screen lawyers are based on real-life lawyers while others are fictionalized. This quiz will test your knowledge of those famous film lawyers -- either the actors who portray them, the characters themselves or the films. Note: the use of the word "actor" can denote a male or female actor. And all are theatrical releases, not made-for-TV movies. Some (but definitely not all) of the questions are based on the American Bar Association Top 25 Legal Movies of All Time list which I commend to you as well. http://www.abajournal.com/magazine/article/the_25_greatest_legal_movies/
