Hollywood Comes To Marquette County: The Making of "Anatomy of a Murder."

“Hollywood Comes to Marquette County” will feature five different sections related to the movie and book, Anatomy of a Murder, and its impact on Marquette County and the country as a whole.  The first section will be on John Voelker, the author of Anatomy of a Murder, describing his work in writing the book.  The second section will examine the criminal trial that inspired both Voelker’s book and the movie.  The third section will describe the process of turning the book into a film.  The fourth section will cover the making of the film in different parts of Marquette County, including Negaunee, Ishpeming, Marquette, Michigamme and Big Bay.  The final section of the exhibit will be on the lasting impact of “Anatomy of a Murder” in Marquette County and on American film.
