Martha Carstairs was charged with murder twenty years earlier. Now, as her daughter Edith is about to be married to Malcolm Sims Jr., son of a wealthy industrialist, a sensationalistic radio station revives interest in the case, leading to the suicide of Martha and her husband. Opposing the station's policy is Sherry Scott, supported by his secretary Alma Ross, "two against the world." Written by

A woman who committed murder 20 years earlier but kept it a secret from her daughter fears that an upcoming radio broadcast of the event could cause more trouble. The radio manager (Humphrey Bogart) and his bosses refuse to cancel the program, which causes the woman's fears to come true. A remake of Five Star Final starts off very slowly but rebounds in the second half due to some hard hitting questions and some really good acting. Also known as Two Against the World.
You can catch this on Turner Classic Movies ever few years and it's worth watching but be sure to check out the original film first.
