Storyline

Naomi Shawn is unhappily married. Her husband Arnold, a successful defense attorney, is having an affair with a younger woman and it's apparent that he's no longer interested in her. He also refuses to agree to a divorce, liking the freedom he already has. In court she sees her husband in action. He is defending a hit and run driver and demolishes the prosecution's chief witness by challenging his visual acuity. During the lunch recess, Naomi decides to take action to end her marriage and fortunately has the correct eye witness to back her up. Written by garykmcd

Good Irony
14 March 2012 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Aces all around. Arnold (Keith) is a hotshot attorney who's found a younger woman and expects wife Naomi (Dana) to put up with it. Meanwhile, he's ruthlessly defending a rich man's son in a hit and run case. Poor Naomi, he dominates her at home and dominates the trial in court. She's had about all she can stand, but what's a respectable woman to do.

First-rate acting, especially the hard-put Naomi who's hardened expression says everything. Excellent turn by Keith also. His clever attorney is insufferably smug, so confident in his abilities wherever he goes. Then too, shouldn't forget William Hansen as the meek witness. He's one of those easily overlooked supporting players who add so much, yet remains relatively anonymous. Happily, it's an above average script that doesn't telegraph an ending, while Arnold's witness interrogation reflects as much on Arnold as it does on the witness-- not an easy screen writing trick. Anyway, it's a very satisfying 30-minutes, in solid Hitchcock style.
