| A Case of Jealousy and Murder
"District Attorney Stowell" (Warren William) is a man who prides himself on the number of cases he has prosecuted that has resulted in the death penalty. But this notoriety comes with a price because in order to attain these convictions he has had to spend a great amount of time at the office-which puts a definite strain on his marriage. Needless to say, when he cancels a vacation at the last minute for a very important case his wife "Lucy Stowell" (Gail Patrick) doesn't take it too well. Knowing this he tries to make amends but in doing so he begins to suspect that she has found someone else and this infuriates him beyond anything he has ever experienced. Even more ironic is that the case he is working on parallels his current situation. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was an interesting film which had a decent plot but suffered from a mediocre script and a lack of suspense or passion. That's not to say it was a bad film by any means but it certainly could have been better and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Average.
