This chapter talks about motion pictures made during the first golden age of juriscinema, which is during the period from the 1920s to mid-1934. Most of these films are no longer available and only a very limited number can be found in the Turner Classic Movies (TCM) collection. This chapter reviews the film Counsellor at Law, provides an overview of the film made outside the US, and outlines the impact on juriscinema of the curtain of self-censorship that fell over Hollywood in the summer of 1934.

Keywords:   juriscinema, motion pictures, law, Turner Classic Movies, Counsellor at Law, self-censorship, Hollywood
