Synopsis

In Stahl’s lurid courtroom melodrama, a young man is accused of shooting his repulsive former employer Edward Knox. A female novelist is sensationally elected to the jury at Jim’s trial. In the film she is the first woman in New York do so, although it wasn’t made legal in the state until 1937.

The Woman Under Oath Regisserad av John M. Stahl

Kritiker-recensioner

How our female juror sways the case is highly melodramatic, and implausible to boot. And the usual mantra that the guilty must pay is glossed over, because the victim “was a rat and deserved it.”
