Description by OLDIES.com:
David Carson (Edmond O'Brien) is a lawyer defending the captain of a sunken ocean liner, which killed dozens of passengers. Was the captain negligent, or did other forces cause the ship to sink? It is up to Carson to find the clues and discover the real cause of the shipwreck. Newly remastered.
In this drama, a sea captain is accused of negligence when his ship sinks and 162 passengers drown. A zealous defense attorney, proud of his perfect track record, is assigned to defend the sailor. Though the captain is clearly guilty, the DA gets him acquitted. Afterward, the lawyer's wife and friends are utterly disgusted and end up leaving him. In the end, the lawyer vindicates himself by proving that the captain is indeed innocent. He then brings the guilty ship's mate to justice.
