| Claire Trevor Excels in Small Town Courtroom Drama
Courtroom dynamics pre-Perry Mason, are the main concern of this most ingratiatingly acted and expansively produced melodrama. True, the satire on small-town prejudice is a bit dated now, but scenarist Lamar Trotti provides some still-hilarious asides. One of the best has Spencer Charters, who has unfazedly announced himself as "proprietor of the best store in town", dilating upon the purchase price of the murder weapon.

The tautly suspenseful proceedings are also enhanced by Lewis Seiler's cool and efficient direction. Other technical credits, especially the art direction and photography (I couldn't split the work of the two cameramen), are equally professional.
