Movie Info

Connecticut prosecutor Henry Harvey (Dana Andrews), faced with a political maelstrom in the wake of the shooting death of a Catholic priest on a city street corner, feels tremendous pressure to prosecute a vagrant ex-soldier whom Police Chief Robinson (Lee J. Cobb) apprehended in connection with the crime. After the vagrant confesses, it looks to be an open and shut case, but Harvey remains unconvinced and chooses to risk his career in order to discover the truth.

    Filmed on location in my current hometown - Stamford CT - yay! Good buildup about political shenanigans related to the prosecution of a mysterious murder in small town America is ultimately spoiled by a by third act courtroom scene where all is miraculously revealed. A compelling mix of documentary and noir styles in this early effort by Elia Kazan.

    I'm teetering between 3 and 3 1/2 stars. I liked the essence more than I liked the premise of this politically motivated courtroom drama. Dana Andrews and Lee J Cobb are superb, as always, but the narration and structure is a little too heavy-handed for my taste.
