Nothing special about this routine and foreseeable court drama made by the prolific TV film director Arthur Hiller before he became an excellent film maker for the big screen. Joseph Cotten plays here a lawyer who is in charge of defending his friend Lorne Greene accused of the murder of a notorious high society courtesan, a kind of fancy prostitute. And our lead will stop at anything to prove his friend is innocent. Real nothing special, it would never had been worth for an Alfred Hitchcock Hour or Presents episode. The final twist is not really one, but only a little surprise. But it remains an honourable time waster. Playhouse 90 has already given us much better material. Catch it if you can. Rare stuff anyway.
