At a college located in the small town of Haverton, law Professor Roger Bowden's third year Evidence class is about ready to hold its annual final project, a mock grand jury investigation. As usual, they will be investigating the workings of an imaginary town, one that generally has some built-in salacious or exotically criminal element. And as usual, Bowden appoints the class' leading student as the District Attorney, this year being Zachary Davis. And as usual, the DA can appoint his assistant DA, who Zach chooses being his girlfriend, Mary Judson, and his investigative team. But Zach, who may be the brightest law student Bowden's ever taught among an already special class, wants to do things a bit differently.

I saw this old film while I was lying in bed recovering from a leg injury, and it was a surprising treat. Dean Jones, in one of his earliest movie roles before he became a Disney stock player, is an earnest young student pursuing the popular mayor of a small town for his apparent embezzlement of tax funds. He earns the open hostility of the townspeople, his fellow students, and his girlfriend as he continues his quest for truth and justice. So the ending I was expecting was that he'd uncover the popular old mayor's crime, and the entire town would be apologetic and grateful, and his girlfriend would return to him, right? Well, NO! Not at all! Nice plot twist at the end, and the short dialogue between the mayor and Dean Jones when they inadvertently meet at very end of the movie, involving the morality of the mayor's actions, provides a very nice little additional mini-twist at the end. If this movie is shown on your local station, and you've got some time, check this one out.
