The story of Clarence Earl Gideon and his fight for the right to have publicly funded legal counsel for the needy.
What I'd like to say to the Court is: "Let's not talk; let's go down there and watch one of these fellows try to defend themselves".
In the first trial, when the bailiff is swearing in Lester Wade, he instructs him to "raise your right hand" [the audio of this is clipped]. However, Lester actually places his right hand on the bible and raises his left hand. On all other occasions in the movie, witnesses actually raise their right hands (and put their left hands on the bible) when being sworn in.
