Best LEGAL Themed Movies ?

Seems law based drama seems more the domain of TV than the movies.

The only really good legal themed movie i can think of is a Few good men

To Kill a Mockingbird-- not necessarily a "legal drama" but I think it would fit.

If you are serious, ALT32 is also space.

BTW, good choice and a great flick (not Tony Danza one).

Yep, it's ALT32. I just tested it. Just hold ALT and then tap 3 then 2.

If you're typing something that absolutely needs spaces (like the example you gave, a search)...just copy and paste a space between each of your words. Type out one of your strings of words, then copy a space, go right click between every word and hit the "paste" button. It'll take a bit of time, but it works for you.

By the way, "Alt32" took me to the search page for these forums also, and in Wordpad it had no effect. It may just be a brower-specific function?
