An actor poses as a lawyer to help his sick friend, and problems develop.
After nearly 40 years of waiting for his big chance, Wilfred Morgenhall (Sellers) is given the case of defending Herbert Fowle (Attenborough) who is accused of murdering his wife (Beryl Reid). Despite Fowle's insistence of guilt, Moregenhall will not let go of the opportunity to plead his client as innocent and be a star in the courtroom.
The young and ambitious district attorney Peter Hudson is convinced that the defendant Andrew Barnes in his current case is guilty, and that winning the case could help him much on his way to become vice-governour of Philadelphia. So he doesn't think twice about influencing witnesses. Only five years later - now head of the Department of Public Prosecution - when he receives a pledge for retrial, he gets doubts and starts investigating again... even risking his career.
A man loses his shirt button, so he starts to improvise with items he finds in his drawers.
Directed by Alex Gabbay.
