Solicitor turns investigator to save framed client
"Guilty?" has a decent thriller script for its time. There is one good fight sequence at night and another good sequence in an underground tunnel. The story integrates several flashbacks nicely, and the courtroom interplay is lively with Donald Wolfit being judge. Sydney Tafler has a brief appearance as a witness.
Overall, the picture is too loose, however, and misses those directorial touches, better acting in secondary roles, lively dialog, and tighter film editing that would make it a good picture. Overall, although not lacking in some interest, it falls short in both the suspense and mystery departments.
