In the movies us "a brilliant defense attorney, studio casting directors would brush him off because he doesn't look like one. "Sorry;" theyu say, "bul you're just not the type." But In Ihe same courtroom with one of thc screen's greatest actors Charlie Chaplin, and his onc-tlme protegee, Joan Barry, Jciry Gles- ler Is the star. Tills business of stealing the show from Illustrious Hollywood clients such as Chaplin and Errol Flynn Is Betting to be a habit with this tall, 57-year-olf| attorney. In fact, Jerry Glcsler Is recognized as one of the best criminal lawyers in the United states, slid one of the best courtroom actors. Yet as a riilc, Giesler doesn't, shout • or gesticulate "or pace back and forth In, front of a jury. In Hollywood parlance, Jerry underplays his role. But he doesn't hesitate, on occasion, 'to go all out for drama. In the Flynn case, he impersonated Peggy Satterlec in a fivc-mliinte soliloquy which would have mfde any actor envious. And once, In an obscure murder trial, h e fell off a plnno stool half a dozen times to drive home's point to the jury. But In underplaying, there'.'; no one In Hollywood who can top Jerry Giesler. re DOESN'T SHOUT He steals the spotlight and sways hate lo sre a ivoiiian cry," says'.ferry c;it-sl.T, here pii he .•ri.M.c.vamincd Joan Barry in (lie C'lujillii caw.

All Hollywood has heard of Ills unsuccessful trials of dozens of kinds of hair restorers. Giesler was trained lo be a showman as well as an attorney.
