Storyline

After a technicality results in the release of a man being tried for the rape and murder of a young woman, her father murders the man. Admitting his guilt and refusing to use temporary insanity, the father places his attorney in a virtual no-win situation. In an extreme effort, the attorney decides to call the judge who released the murderer originally and to challenge the entire legal system that would permit such a travesty.

Trivia

Downtown Los Angeles, a block north of Los Angeles Street, filming was scheduled in an alley. Prior to filming, the entire block long alley had to be steamed cleaned for the cast and crew to work in, including cleaning out the alley's abandoned garbage. The set decorator then had to dress the alley with clean items that had been distressed with paint. The morning of filming the alley scene, the morning temperature was extremely frigid cold. Irwin and his assistant arrived wearing heavy overcoats with their hands deep in their overcoat pockets. In the parking lot across from the alley, where the catering truck had set up, one of the local unfortunate alley inhabitants spotted Irwin with his assistant side-kick standing in the parking lot, a few yards away from the catering truck. The bum walked over to Irwin, asking him directly, "can you spare a dollar?" Irwin turned to Steve and said "Give him a quarter!" Steve reached deep into his pocket, pulling out a quarter, handing the coin to the bum! Looking at the quarter in his palm, the bum said "O.K." And walked away... See more »

Truly Unusual Irwin Allen Production!
29 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The most stunning thing about "Outrage" is not so much the intriguing storyline, but rather the fact that it was produced by Irwin Allen, the "Master of Disaster" of '70s cinema, and also responsible for erstwhile sci-fi TV series of the '60s like "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" and "Lost In Space." His productions are usually criticized for their lack of attention to the finer details like the script and dramatic performances. But here, he surprises his critics (and fans) with a taut, and timely subject that is more "Law and Order" than "Poseidon Adventure." No action sequences, no explosions or people running around in rubber monster suits. Just good acting with a provocative plot line.

My only complaint is that Robert Preston's character seemed a bit 'dated' by 1986 in the way he lived through his religion....I mean, I didn't know many New York Irish Catholics in the '80s that were THAT religious (particularly a man). I assume the director wanted his Catholicism 'played to the hilt" to emphasis Preston was above reproach to further the courtroom dramatics.
