Dean Jagger and Will Hutchins
8 March 2012 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"The Star Juror" stars Dean Jagger as mild mannered George Davies, out on a lakeside picnic with his sleeping wife Jenny (Betty Field), who comes upon the flirtatious Lola (Cathie Merchant, "The Haunted Palace"), and unwittingly strangles her when she spurns his advances. Luckily for George, the sheriff (Crahan Denton) arrests Lola's boyfriend, J. J. Fenton (Will Hutchins), who spent that afternoon in a rowboat, thinking his girl was asleep. Wracked with guilt, George decides to phone an anonymous tip to the sheriff about the real killer, but cannot bring himself to actually confess to his crime. The innocent J. J. ends up on trial for murder, with the guilty George a member of the jury! Interesting to see Will Hutchins cast against type, best remembered for his starring role in the recently cancelled TV Western SUGARFOOT.
