Appalling! ! ( * spoilers * )

A dying attorney defends a young man (a family friend) who kicked his wife to death. He wants to prove that it wasn't premeditated (as stated in the confession), that rather it's what is euphemistically called "an act of passion." This is a thoroughly appalling screenplay. There's no justification for the attorney's faith (even though his instincts are proved to be correct). He was gentle with his son, therefore he couldn't be a coldblooded wife killer? This script is like something from the Dark Ages. He keeps encouraging the killer to not give up, "I can have the charge reduced, you'll do 2 or 3 years, don't you believe that somewhere out there is another girl for you?" Yes! Put this guy back on the streets, he can find a new love, maybe Herschel Bernardi's character can give the bride away...how romantic! What a lucky girl she'll be! Just hope the Stockwell character's mommy issues don't resurface...and hope the woman never oversteps the line into what hubby considers to be trampish behavior...or is the script telling us that all women who are less than perfect mothers and who cheat on their psychopathic husbands deserve to die?
