Raymond Burr (Rear Window) and Angela Lansbury (The Manchurian Candidate) star in this intense drama about a lawyer who earns a murder acquittal for his client, only to find out she really did commit murder! Peter Godfrey (Christmas in Connecticut, The Two Mrs. Carrols) directed, with music by the uncrowned king of B-movie scores, Albert Glasser (The Spider, Attack of the Puppet People).
