    How's that for a title? Lawyer Raymond Burr (seeming very much like Perry Mason) brilliantly defends Angela Lansbury, who seems certain to be found guilty of murdering her husband, who was Burr's best friend!

Because a reviewer stated that the audio is out of sync with the video, here's a link to a different transcoding that was derived from a different source file: CLICK HERE Cornel Wilde stars in an excellent noir. This copy is sharper than the one that was already here.
