First Monday in October Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:In Theatre Saw at/with: Don't Remember
Rating: R Year: 1981 Category: Drama Comedy
Director: Ronald Neame Time: 98 min. Writer: Jerome Lawrence

Mine: It is good to see a movie take such a liberal stance. Matthau is terrific.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Talky but OK adaptation of Jerome Lawrence-Robert E. Lee stage hit about Tracy-and-Hepburn-like clash of wills between first female member of the Supreme Court (a staunch conservative) and the most liberal of her brethren. Lost some of its novelty when it happened for real just before film was released, but still amusing; Paper Chase alum Stephens plays ...a law clerk. Panavision.
