Coming off the phenomenal success of The Thin Man, William Powell and Myrna Loy team up again as husband and wife in this thrilling, courtroom heart-stopper. Supporting roles by comedienne Una Merkel and bombshell Rosalind Russell make it an unforgettable delight. John Prentice (Powell) is a highly successful Manhattan defense attorney. His wife, Evelyn (Loy), loves him very much, and as members of New Yorks high society, they enjoy an elegant and enviable lifestyle. But loneliness soon drives Evelyn into the arms of another, more romantic man. The affair is ended when the man blackmails Evelyn and is murdered. Another woman is accused of the crime and Evelyn begs John to defend her. He takes the case and for the first time in his career, it looks like John Prentice is going to lose. Then, just before the jury sends the other woman to the electric chair, Evelyn makes a startling confession. But the real shocker comes in the jurys final verdict.
