1 hr. 55 min.
Ambitious young lawyer David Mitchell (Richard Chamberlain) is appointed to defend Ben Brown (Nick Adams), a slow-witted veteran accused of murdering Cole Clinton (Pat Buttram), a prominent and well-respected town leader. With the locals in a murderous mood, David initially concludes Ben is guilty, but becomes suspicious of the case against him when both opportunistic prosecutor Norris Bixby (James Gregory) and Judge James Tucker (Edgar Stehli) refuse to hear testimony that could clear Ben.
