Synopsis:
New York lawyer Adam Heywood is called to England to help a friend who saved
his life during the war. Upon arriving in England Adam finds his friend, Sam Baxter
is charged with murder. Having no legal power in a foreign country, Adam sets
about to investigate the crime and locate a missing eye witness who can prove his
friend's innocence. Along the way Adam encounters many differences between law
in a large American city and a small English town, and finds romance with the
sister-in-law of the high sheriff. Montgomery's last film as an actor and his second
to last film as director is an entertaining and unpretentious supsense yarn with
many good moments and a snappy jazz soundtrack.
