This Hitchcock film has not been available on DVD for awhile, so I was happy to find this and others available earlier this year. Although not one of Hitch's best, I still found the film interesting. This is a courtroom drama so do not look for a chase scene or a murder(that happened before the movie began), but does include a surprise ending and Hitchcock's camera work when it was not trimmed by the producer David O. Selznick. The film has beem restored and has a few extras. I found the commentary interseting.
