It's not half bad, but only goes so far in both drama and filming

Man Accused (1959)

A slight affair, well enough done to keep you going, but not so well written, and a bit of a contrived plot. But hey, it's less than an hour, and is as distracting and convincing as most good television (at the same length).

Is there anything remarkable here, any actors to appreciate, anyone behind the scenes? Not that I can find. Here in the US were are familiar (some of us) with the smaller studios like Republic and Monogram who were making B-movies, some of which are pretty interesting (and a bit different from the larger studio fare). "Man Accused" is a British small studio film, produced by the Danzigers, and it had the same role, aimed at both the second feature slot and at television. In fact, this is shot not in widescreen (which had become essentially standard by 1959) but in normal old 4:3 ratio, probably with t.v. in mind.

You might notice one actor is named Ian Fleming, and no, it's not the famous Fleming, Ian Fleming of James Bond fame, but an Aussie actor. That would have been fun. And the leading woman, who is a bit too cheerfully insistent throughout, is Carol Marsh, who played a wonderful Alice in the 1949 "Alice in Wonderland."
