Mistaken Identity
5 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** It's when Det. Sgt. Ed Brown, Don Galloway, is asked to be in a lineup in trying Ito identify the killer of a local bookie named Frankie Baum that he's quickly identified as Baum's killer by non other then five witnesses who were at the scene of the crime! With Det. Brown being out of town at the time of the incident on a secret fishing and writing trip he had no one to come froward to provide him with an alibi. The fact that Det. Brown had some issues with Baum in the past as a SF policeman didn't help him either and now he's not only in danger of losing his job but being convicted in a case of manslaughter in Baum's death!

With Det. Brown's boss Inspector Robert T. Ironside, Raymond Burr, taking up his case he tracks down the person who can not only prove Det. Brown innocent but who in fact really killed Frankie Baum in the first place:Julie Mills, Ann Whitfield. It was Julie that Baum was going out with and who can provide Ironside with the evidence in his death. But to do that Julie will have to also provide Inspt. Ironside with the identity of the person who killed him which she's not all that willing to do!

***SPOILERS*** As we soon find out Baum's death had nothing at all to do with his criminal activities but something far more personal. His relationship with Julie whom he not only made with child or pregnant but refused to marry her thus not giving his and Julie's soon to be born child s proper and legal name. This has Julie's outraged big brother Bobby Joe, Warren Hammac, take matters into his own hands. Now it's up to Ironside to get Bobby Joe to turn himself into the police before what was a case of self defense on his part, he killed Baum with his own gun after he tried to shot him with it, ends up in him becoming a fugitive from justice.
