Fair court drama, but not only.

A court drama with interesting surroundings. Bob Weber plays a man accused of killing another guy whom he pointed out to be a bad American, a communist agent whose acts were a threat against the USA. Dick Powell plays the D.A, Ed Begley Webber's counselor, Ed Platt the president of the court. But you are also shown the intimate sequences of Powell's character, with his girl friend. A woman who happens to be the ex accused man's mistress. What I appreciate the most here, is that is not a bad guy vs good guy scheme. The audience has not to feel close to the accused or the prosecutor. This story only leads you to think about the meaning of matters such as for example the true meaning of war and all the side effects that may occur on men. Terrific performance from Dina Merill. Buzz Kulik gave here a pretty good effort. Good job.
