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 absorbing story aside, Vera Miles is outstanding as Balestrero's wife - and the first scene that she appears to be unwell in is genuinely chilling - aided by Bernard Herrmann's sc... read more

A very good movie

Honestly, I had never heard of this movie before but since I’m a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock’s work, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, even though it is not indeed one of his most famous features, I still thought it was actually pretty awesome. To be honest, it used in fact a rather standard gimmick used by Hitchcock, the story about an ordinary man stuck into a devilish plot bu... read more

Description: The true story of Manny Balestrero (Henry Fonda), a musician unjustly accused of armed robbery. In classic Hitchcock form, Balestrero vehemently protests his innocence but acts thoroughly guilty, leading a host of policemen and witnesses to finger him as the thief. The trial goes badly for Manny, but life is worse for his wife, Rose ( ... (more)

"01.03.2015 Henry Fonda on väärä mies, jota syytetään rikoksesta. Tämähän on Hitchcockilta ihan hienosti kuvattu ja ohjattu filmi, jossa jännitys pysyy loppuun asti yllä. Muutama ovela kikka on näin saatu mukaan, etenkin kuulustelukohtaus on erinomainen, joka antaa viitteitä Hitchin tulevasta tyylistä. Myöskin lopun oikeudenkäynti on varsin jouhevaa seurattavaa."

A very good movie

“Honestly, I had never heard of this movie before but since I’m a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock’s work, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, even though it is not indeed one of his most famous features, I still thought it was actually pretty awesome. To be honest, it used in fact a rather standard gimmick used by Hitchcock, the story about an ordinary man stuck into a devilish plot but, this time, like many times before, it was quite flawless. First of all, the great Henry Fonda was playing the lead (I think it was the only time he worked with the great master) and he delivered a sober but great and totally believable performance. I really wish I would watch more movies with this guy, he is definitely one of my favorite classic actors. Furthermore, like I mentioned before, the” read more
