  COURTTV.COM -- CHICAGO: THE MOVIE
Luckily for Watkins, Gaertner proved to be a stylish and sophisticated woman with a colorful past and a blasé outlook on life and men.
Gaertner's lawyers were not blind to O'Brien's tactics and appropriated some for their client's defense.
Gaertner's demure performance — she said very little — seemed to persuade the jury that she couldn't hurt a worm much less a man, and she was quickly acquitted of Walter Law's murder.

 The truth behind 'Chicago'
Gaertner's story was a bit more colorful than that of Annan, who was a simple cashier at a laundry when she emerged as the popular murderess.
Gaertner's was simple enough: She didn't remember what happened after she and Law left a cabaret that night.
In August 1926, Gaertner's marriage was again headed for divorce, with her husband claiming she had "murderous tendencies.'' News accounts say he claimed she returned to a wild life of affairs and that she once hit him.

Set against the background of the Roaring Twenties, the articles by Watkins sensationalized the cases of Beulah Annan and Belva Gaertner, two women on Chicago's "murderesses' row" on charges of first-degree murder.
Gaertner, described as "a married cabaret singer with a long history of dalliances," was charged with the fatal shooting of her boyfriend Walter Law, whom police found slumped over the steering wheel of Gaertner's car.
The media-driven nature of the real-life trials of Gaertner and Annan was similar to the media-hype that surrounded the late 1990s trials of O.J. Simpson, Amy Fisher and the Mendendez brothers, Pauly said.
