Trial 1955
Adapted by Don M. Mankiewicz from his own novel, Trial is a surprisingly timely story of how justice can sometimes be compromised by "special interests". Forced to try a case to keep his teaching job, law professor David Blake (Ford) is hired by attorney Barney Castle (Kennedy, in an Oscar®-nominated performance) to help represent Angel Chavez (Rafael Campos), a Hispanic 17-year-old accused of killing a white girl. Although the boy is innocent, David faces a trial where race counts more than evidence. So as the hearing begins and he argues to a bigoted jury, David tries to save Angels life while Barney - a card carrying Communist - plans to let the boy hang so he can use his death as a fundraising tool for the party.
