Description by OLDIES.com:
"I'm not looking at your legs, madam," says D.A. Tom Cardigan to the glamorous accused killer on the witness stand. "I'm looking at your soul!" John Barrymore dazzles courtroom audiences and movie audiences alike as Cardigan, a mob-mouthpiece-turned-principled prosecutor. Although he's tangled up with booze, shady characters, a bad girl who's good for him (Helen Twelvetrees) and a good girl who's bad for him (Jill Esmond), Tom makes a success of his new career and appears headed for the governor's mansion. Then the cops nab Tom's former boss on a murder rap, and Tom prosecutes, knowing the mobster may spill a secret that will destroy Tom's future.
A flamboyant lawyer has criminal connections that may help him achieve his lofty ambitions.
