CGiii Comment

This is so full of subtext that you will choke.

Everything is there...without a poofy word being uttered.

Unfortunately, it falters and becomes a bog-standard courtroom drama without a conclusion - rendering it absolutely pointless and way too preachy for its own good.

The(ir) Blurb...

This dramatization of a factual incident opens in a quiet Connecticut town where a kindly priest is murdered while waiting at a street corner. The citizens are horrified and demand action from the police. All of the witnesses identify John Waldron, a nervous out-of-towner, as the killer. Although Waldron vehemently denies the crime, no one will believe him. District Attorney Henry Harvey is then put on the case and faces political opposition in his attempt to prove Waldron's innocence.
