watch Biff Elliot in I, the Jury

Longtime readers have read much about my uncle, movie star and master storyteller Biff Elliot. Very few have actually had the chance to watch him in action. Here, presented in its entirety thanks to YouTube and ambiguous copyright issues, is I, the Jury.

If you could only play one lead role in your lifetime, as Biff did, you could do much worse than Mike Hammer. Biff was, in fact, the very first Mike Hammer of the screen. There would be many more, but like Sean Connery and James Bond, Biff left a long shadow.

Since I, the Jury is unavailable on any home video format, this is your best chance to watch a little-seen film noir.
