Synopsis
A television adaptation of Henry Denker's 1963 courtroom drama about Boyd Bendix, a self-appointed and self-righteous Red Menace watchdog, who is accused of libeling Dennis Corcoran, a one-time World War II correspondent he feels is "a drunken, yellow-bellied degenerate" and a Communist sympathizer. Denker based his play on the Quentin Reynolds-Westbrook Pegler libel case as dealt with in a portion of Louis Nizer's memoir, "My Life in Court."
