Product Description:

Hailing from early on in the career of director Elia Kazan, BOOMERANG! tells the noirish tale of an innocent man brow-beaten into confessing to the murder of a minister. Dana Andrews stars as the D.A. who decides to dig deeper into what seems like an open-and-shut case. Arthur Miller fans should look for a cameo by the playwright in the suspect line-up. Based on an article by Anthony Abbott in Reader's Digest, this brilliant true crime drama represents one of Hollywood's first forays into the gritty Italian neo-realist style of filmmaking.

Plot Synopsis:

This melodrama, based on the true story of an unsolved murder, carefully combines fact with fiction in semi-documentary style. When a prosecuting attorney investigates the killing of a Connecticut clergyman, he begins to suspect that the accused man is innocent -- and sets out to prove it.
