I generally like old B & W movies. Just couldn't stay interested in this one and didn't finish it. It has some of the better actors of that time period and their performances were well done. Just couldn't stay interested in the plot.

This appears to have been a pilot for a television series that wasn't picked up and then turned into a movie. The premise is that a Judge chooses from his court files people and cases that can serve as life lessons for the viewers. In this morality play, the Judge chooses the case of a rich criminal defense lawyer who misuses his law license by defending people accused of crimes (aka the scum of the earth). There is not a single thing about this movie that makes it worth watching. From the repulsive characters, to the hammy acting, to the inane plot that completely falls apart at the end, this movie is a one star stinker that should be avoided at all costs. I want my seventy minutes back!
