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

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.

"This is a terrific, dark, taut thriller from Alfred Hitchcock, based on a true story. Not his usual ostentatious style, but it plays on the theme of a wrong man caught up in extraordinary events beyond his control. Henry Fonda plays a man falsely accused of armed robbery. He is a quiet man, whose life gets turned upside down as a result. Hitchcock spares us nothing of the horror of the predicament of Fonda's situation. He shows many of the details of how Fonda is accused, arrested, and tried in "

" 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 brilliant as Balestrero's wife - and the first scene that she appears to be unwell in is genuinely chilling - aided by Bernard Herrmann's score. Anthony Quale is decent too as the lawyer assigned to help the couple. The technical work is fantastic too, with outstanding cinematography. "

" Yes, real life can be stranger then fiction. It can also be boring, flat and uninteresting. I really did like the film but it feel far from riveting for me."

"10.2. A Hitchcock film that is a crime story about a wrongfully suspected person - how novel. The film is very well put together with a lot of tasty details filled with suspicion, disbelief and despair, and during the latter half of the film emphasis is on a rather surprising aspect. Unfortunately the wrongful persecution becomes quickly so routine that it stops being Kafka-like and suspenseful."
