BREAKDOWN (16 July 1952) (76 min/B&W) -- Edmond Angelo (Director) - William Bishop, Ann Richards, Anne Gwynne, Sheldon Leonard & Wally Cassel
Robert Abel whose play and screen writing is sharp as amateur boxer (William Bishop) sprung from prison falls for the niece of the hanging judge who sentenced him --- Sheldon Leonard and Wally Cassel exhibit strong performances with their supporting contribution --- The final boxing match takes on a fascinating aspect that is simply relentless.
EYE WITNESS (6 March 1950) (100 min/B&W) -- Robert Montgomery (Director) - Robert Montgomery, Leslie Banks & Felix Aylmer
A very inspiring film with some scenes that hang in the balance on a thin thread of evidence, or are they so thin --- Integrity and objectivity during the courtroom sessions take you for a ride and then pull you in --- Robert Montgomery's last film on the big screen.
