Description

An Act of Murder DVD 1948 Fredric March Edmond O Brien Crime Drama Film-Noir

Stars of An Act of Murder: Fredric March, Edmond O’Brien, Florence Eldridge

Judge Cooke, good husband and father, is known in court as Old Man Maximum. Cooke’s daughter loves defender Dave Douglas, who hates Cooke’s attitude toward defendants. Cooke’s life shatters when he learns his wife has terminal brain cancer; as her pain worsens, he begins to consider mercy-killing, but that would place him in the position of a defendant.

This thoughtful piece of social commentary is rich and rewarding with taut and suspenseful scenes that can at times be heartbreaking. This movie is well worth a watch for its genuine concern about troubling things that are rarely discussed (especially in 1948), bu linger on the fringe of every day life.
