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

The courtroom set was a standing feature set, designed by Gene Callahan, which had not been struck. Taking advantage of the budget savings, Irwin Allen and Columbia Pictures dictated the use of the standing set for the court room scenes. The major expense for using the set was for filling the enormous room with extra casting. See more »

Was Remade
29 November 2004 | by (Madison, GA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in 86, and later noticed it was remade, starring Beau Bridges, in 97 "Defenders: Payback". Same premise carefully retold 11 years later, only with John Larroquette as the vigilante "I don't want no attorney" father, instead of the original with Robert Preston. Though the suspect chase would be used in the other "Defenders" TV movie "Choice Of Evils".

More or less, a decent Hollywood justice type of film If you take it for what it is in that context. The main idea is to show the viewers that not all homicide cases are black & white. Instead, this film attempts to show (or rather pose to) the viewer, how YOU might react if your child's rapist or molester had been released on a technicality, even though he confessed to the crime. Would YOU become a vigilante too?
