Description

A Connecticut priest is shot dead on a street corner in front of several witnesses, and a vagrant picked up by police confesses to the crime. Upon investigating the case, the prosecuting state's attorney begins doubting the man's guilt and puts his job and reputation on the line to prove his innocence. Dana Andrews, Arthur Kennedy, Jane Wyatt, and Lee J. Cobb star in director Elia Kazan's gripping crime drama, based on a true story.
