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)

" 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."

Phillydude's Movie Log - November, 2012 (30 movies items)

" Watched November 27th - TCM - 1st Viewing "This is Alfred Hitchcock speaking - in the past I have given you many kinds of suspense pictures, but this time, I would like you to see a different one, the difference lies in the fact that this is a true story, every word of it - and yet it contains elements that are stranger than all the fiction that has gone into many of the thrillers that I've made before." - Alfred Hitchcock's prologue The Wrong Man is another Hitchcock movie that I didn't "
