Storyline

District Attorney Stephen Pettijohn returns to his alma mater to lecture on circumstantial evidence, and uses a recent case,the murder of banker James Gardner, to make his point: Constance Gardner had wed James to spite Ted Farnsworth. Later, the pair drove to Gardner's country lodge to urge him to give Constance a divorce. He refuses and that night he is found dead with a bullet in his head. Pettijohn finds that all evidence points to Harry Beach, and the latter is convicted and sentenced to die. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

An unusual B-mystery film.
24 June 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The story begins with Steve Pettijohn (Frank Craven) lecturing a law school class. He tells them a story about his prosecuting a most unusual case....one where two different folks confessed to a murder and another man who was actually convicted of the killing....and the fourth who actually may have committed the crime!

In many ways, the film is done like a typical B murder mystery--with a person insisting they knew who the murderer was and investigating the case to prove it. But the little things about the story make it unusual and less predictable than normal for such pictures. Very interesting and worth your time.
