If you go into this movie with your expectations being low, then this movie is not that bad. But if you are looking for a diamond in the rough with an entertaining cast and interesting plot then this movie is not for you. Fay Wray surprisingly does a nice job of playing a female attorney that will defend her separated husband against a charge of murder. But that acting alone cannot save this movie from production woes.
What had happened was that Ann Carver Graham (Fay Wray) and her husband Bill Graham had split up when Ann's career became too great for Bill to handle. Bill finally got a job singing at a local night club that made him happy. But one evening Ann catches Bill in the presents of another woman named Carole Rodgers and thinks the worse. Bill then moves out of the house leaving both Ann and Bill feeling bad about the situation.
When Carole is found dead, Bill is arrested for murder. Ann, his separated wife, will defend him. The case looks bad for Bill but Ann will give a stirring speech to the jurors in order to free the man she loves.
As many already said, this is a B type movie. Most of the acting is poor and the film feel cheaply made. It made be nice to look back and see the fashion of the day but little else can be obtained from this picture.
