Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

No Horror Movie
20 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got this as part of a collection of horror movies. I can't for the life of me figure out how it even remotely fits in the package. This is a pretty good drama about the results of corruption, much like the Enron scandal, where a group of businessmen steal from the company, and invest in stocks, hoping ot raise even more. It backfires, of course, and a series of people need to be shut up for them to stay anonymous. The first district attorney is killed and then implicated in a scandal. The new, young attorney, swears to get to the bottom of it, putting himself and others in danger. It all plays out quite nicely. It's a nicely done film with pretty strong performances, especially for its time.
