If you think Susan Hayward can pull off being a lawyer, by all means, go out and rent Heat of Anger. She's one of my favorite actresses, but I just couldn't imagine her with that much intelligence, keeping her temper down, and putting together logical arguments in front of a jury. And, now that I've seen the movie, I still can't.
Lee J. Cobb has been accused of murdering his daughter's married boyfriend, and since he can't remember what happened at the time of the murder, he's not much help to his lawyers, Susan Hayward and James Stacy. Throughout the course of the movie, Susan and James work to put together the pieces and find out everyone's secrets. Unlike many courtroom dramas that are actually entertaining, this one has no surprises, uninspired dialogue, and the star power behind the cast isn't enough to save it. Only die-hard fans of Susan Hayward are going to sit through this one. The only consolation is how pretty she looks, but since she always looks pretty, that's not really a reason to watch it.
