For the Defense 1930
High powered attorney William Foster is making a mockery of the city’s law and justice system. His showboating ways and clever tricks have made him the scourge of the town and won him the heart of fair Irene Manners. The only trouble here is that Foster refuses to believe his good luck, and Irene is too eager to please. When a third man comes in, Jack Defoe, he raises both’s ire.
This reaches a dramatic crash when Irene, spending the night out with a drunk Jack and speeding at a whopping 45 MPH on the back roads, accidentally strikes and kills someone. The love triangle heats up as the unapologetic Foster has to defend the man he think stole his love’s love away. Once Foster is caught for jury tampering, the underworld and all of his friends immediately turn against him, leaving him alone in every way but for Irene’s love.
