Rumpole defends the smarmy owner of a string of massage parlors on the charge of running "disorderly houses" (i.e. bordellos).More
Rumpole, the beloved old British barrister, familiar to listeners from the British TV series, this time, in Rumpole and the Judge's Elbow, defends Charles Hearthstoke, the sleazy owner of a chain of massage parlors, accused of running "bawdy houses". John Mortimer's Rumpole, performed impeccably by the ever-droll Leo McKern, as usual outwits the court by convincing Guthrie Featherstone, an erstwhile client of Hearthstroke's for an elbow injury, to preside over the trial as Judge. With wit, mystery, and a clear sense of the absurd, Rumpole entertains listeners once again.
