Editorial Reviews

Television favorite George Maharis (Route 66) makes the transition to big-screen stardom in this underrated courtroom gem, powerfully directed by two-time Emmy Award® winner Lamont Johnson. When Louise Talbot is found strangled, suspicion immediately falls upon her husband, Brian (Earl Holliman), a bad apple who threatened his unfaithful wife with bodily harm. Tried, convicted and sentenced to die, he’s brought to the scaffold, where he accidentally kills the hangman just as the real strangler confesses to the crime. Now the burden falls on Ben Lewis (Maharis) a young judge who must decide if the hangman’s death was murder or a case of an innocent man trying to save his own life. Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen Becker, A Covenant with Death also features an early screen appearance by Gene Hackman, whose breakout performance later in 1967 Bonnie and Clyde would earn him an Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actor.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Earl Holliman is great in this movie. I bought it 'cause my friend is in it. She's the corpse in the beginning of the movie. I gave it to her as a present. She never saw it.

ive always liked katy jurado, and george maharis. i liked the way it was positive toward mexicans. / nice to see the innuendos the put in the movie, it showed the gringo, how they were at that time. but overall i just liked the movie especially jurado's acting, she was gem that should have got an oscar long ago. !!

After catching the very end of this film on a late show, many years ago, I have searched in vain to find a copy. It appears to have only recently been released. The video I received was of excellent quality and clarity. A compelling story with an interesting twist ending. Confronts a lot of moral dilemmas faced by those whose job it is to administer justice. Fine performance by Earl Holliman as a less than sympathetic character who nevertheless in entitled to a fair hearing, which is nearly denied him. A movie that was well worth waiting for.

I love this movie. So many issues brought to life. The acting is wonderful throughout. Especially George Maharis and Earl Holliman. It also has some really cute scenes. It is a movie you can watch over and over.

If you found the book wonderful, you will – no surprise – find this film version very disappointing.
