Did Julie Marshall beat her fianceé to death with a fireplace poker? Her attorney, Sam Zangrillis, thinks he can prove her innocent, but District Attorney Adrienne Bancroft, a former friend and colleague of the deceased, is out for revenge. Here's a slick and suspenseful courtroom drama that will keep everyone in the audience guessing because the witnesses seem to cloud the case rather than illuminate it. Julie's main alibi, her roommate, is a single, lonely woman, possibly envious of Julie having a serious relationship. The dead man's sister, who discovered his body, is a bitter old maid, intensely spiteful and hurt over a recent quarrel. The artist-neighbor who claims she saw Julie's car before the murder, is flighty and susceptible to suggestion. The verdict is revealed at the shocking, action-filled climax of this realistic, compelling courtroom drama.
