Digital presentation - Originally a Theater Guild stage production, this film is much less stage-bound and more cinematic than one might expect. A jury foreman persuades his colleagues to convict a young woman of capital murder and then endures a barrage of criticism. Meanwhile, his daughter falls in love with a man (Humphrey Bogart in a secondary role) she meets at the trial, who suggests that with a better lawyer, the young woman would have done better. Not quite a capital punishment film, not quite a courtroom drama, the movie is full of (still pertinent) conversation and ideas about the law and society.
