Crime drama

Humphrey Bogart stands piously for the defense, begging the jury to blame society, not the boy. With George Macready and Allene Roberts; based on a book by novelist Willard Motley.
Director: Nicholas Ray
Writer: John Monks Jr., Willard Motley and Daniel Taradash
Producer: Robert Lord
Cast: Humphrey Bogart, John Derek, George Macready, Allene Roberts, Susan Perry, Mickey Knox, Barry Kelley, Dooley Wilson, Cara Williams and Jimmy Conlin
