A Little Gem
11 April 2002 | by (Orange County, CA) – See all my reviews

This remake of "Star Witness" (1931) is a rare find. Starring a cast of experienced character actors (both young and old), it's the story of a family that makes a brave stand against small-town government corruption. Exceptional performances include those of Henry O'Neill as the family patriarch, Charlie Grapewin as the grandfather, and Jane Bryan as the daughter.
