The NTSB guys are here about that bulkhead problem.
Ted Crawford: OK, thanks.
The problem with this film is the fact that there is no delay time between the shooting and the beginning of the trial. Even though Crawford asks for his right to a speedy trial, this would not allow a proper investigation to take place, search for any pertinent witnesses, and, above all, allow the courts to schedule a free courtroom, judge, etc. to hear the case. Asking for a speedy trial still means that holding the trial has to accommodate the courts and court personnel and would mean delays of up to a couple of months. It's highly unlikely that scheduled court business would be pushed aside to accommodate Crawford's request.
The opening credits, rather than merely superimposed on the background, cast shadows and have reflections as if they exist in the scene.
