Beyond a Reasonable Doubt | 1956
Novelist Tom Garrett and publisher Austin Spencer intend to show how lawyer Roy Thompson has been using circumstantial evidence in capital punishment trials. They concoct a scheme in which flimsy evidence will point to Garrett as a murder suspect, but Spencer will exonerate him at the end. Meanwhile, they keep the plan a secret from Spencer's daughter, Susan, who is engaged to Garrett. However, the trial doesn't go as planned.
