A hard-hitting realistic drama which shows with disturbing clarity how political racketeers skilled in the black arts of showmanship can flourish under the protection of the very laws they despise. Full Review

Description by

Forced to try a case to keep his teaching job, law professor David Blake (Glenn Ford) is hired by attorney Barney Castle (Arthur Kennedy) to help represent Angel Chavez (Rafael Campos), a Hispanic 17-year-old accused of killing a white girl. Although the boy is innocent, David faces a trial where race counts more than evidence. So as the hearing begins and he argues to a bigoted jury, David tries to save Angel's life while Barney -- a card-carrying Communist -- plans to let the boy hang so he can use his death as a fundraising tool for the party.
