Fonda is the perennial stooge for the Dalton Trumbo Ashkenazim script writers. Hollywood Jewery loved him and the rest of his sell out family. I would have much more enjoyed a portrayal of Ezra Pound and his imprisonment ordeal by FDR in a D.C. mental hospital, simply because of his political beliefs. Barbara Bel Geddes was very convincing in her role. The police were far too lenient. This was a psychotic with a gun and had no reservations using it.

The ultimate Henry Fonda tear jerker. (And you will lose it, I guarantee.)
Doleful common man Joe lets wily, wicked Max the magician get fatally under his sensitive socially progressive skin, after which fellow orphan and true love Jo Ann tries desperately to save him and his shattered ideals from the entire police department. To the incessantly repeated strains of Beerthoven's Seventh. You can't make this stuff up unless you work in Hollywood.
