Movie Info

After being accused of murdering a shopkeeper, Johnny O'Hara (James Arness) begs retired lawyer James Curtayne (Spencer Tracy) to represent him. Once in court, the shaky Curtayne struggles in the face of a tough prosecutor -- and worse yet, his alcoholism also threatens to unravel him. After O'Hara ends up in prison because of his lawyer's botched handling of the case, a reeling Curtayne will stop at nothing to redeem himself, even if it means taking matters into his own hands.

    There's a lot to like about the film noir, but the script isn't one of them. See if for John Alton's superb B & W cinematography, and the stellar performances from Spencer Tracey, Diana Lynn and others.

    Not a classic noir but a decent drama with Tracy customarily excellent.
