As jurors resume their deliberations today in the Alabama Bingo Trial Part Deux, we take a look at VictoryLand Casino owner Milton McGregor’s Hollywood moment in the suspense-thriller “Runaway Jury”.
McGregor plays a greedy, reckless owner (Henry Jankle) of a large gun manufacturer that produced a firearm that was used by a disgruntled day trader in a murder-suicide in the office-place.
In this scene, Jankle is being hounded on the witness stand by pro bono lawyer Wendall Rohr played by Dustin Hoffman. Rohr upsets the grumpy old man and sparks an incriminating outburst from Jankle. Before Jankle’s eruption, he says the word advertisement but pronounces it like a true Brit would — ad-vur-tis-muhnt.
McGregor didn’t win any awards for his role and hasn’t acted since, at least not in a movie.
Prediction of Alabama Bingo Trial: Acquittal on most counts, guilty on a few. 1-5 years in prison and fines for the Stanley Anderson look-alike.
