In reply to the question last week about The Thin Blue Line:  a friend and
colleague who teaches in the law school here recently wrote an article about
Breaker Morant and legal process, in which he referred to a growing body of
writing about the law and literature, and a few articles about the law and
the cinema or TV.
Buried in a footnote is the following, in legal footnotese:
B. Gershman, "The Thin Blue Line:  Art or Trial in the Fact-Finding Process"
(1989) Pace L. Rev. 275.
Nothing, however, about The Onion Field.
