This chapter examines the depiction of military justice in motion pictures and television drama in the United States. The emergence of the court-martial drama roughly corresponds with the genesis of legal films. Court martial films tended to oscillate between the traditional generic courtroom dramas and war films, and in a way they may be described as a subgenre of the courtroom film. From 1931 to 1940, thirty-four American films focused on the topic of court-martial including Rules of Engagement, One Kill, and Hart's War.
