Another excellent film, with Hitchcock even introducing it. Henry Fonda is superb in this true story about Manny Balestrero, an innocent family-man with debt problems, who is falsely arrested for robbery and assault.

The trial goes badly for Manny, but life is worse for his wife, Rose (Vera Miles), who falls apart under the strain of his ordeal.

Instead, he appears at the beginning of the film in ominous silhouette and addresses the camera directly to tell us that the story we are about to watch is all true. Hitchcock apparently also filmed a cameo as a nightclub patron but quite w"
