This courtroom drama involves the case of Maddelena Anna Paradine (Alida Valli) who is on trial for murdering her wealthy husband. Defense attorney Anthony Keane (Gregory Peck), although married to Gay (Ann Todd), falls in love with his beautiful client, fails to see the blatant facts of the case, and believes that she is innocent. Meanwhile, Judge Lord Thomas Horfield (Charles Laughton) sees through Anna's facade, and the prosecuting attorney, Sir Joseph (Leo G. Carroll), is determined to find her guilty. Despite Anna's protests, Keane calls her lover, stableman Andre Latour (Louis Jourdan), to the stand and tries to prove that he is the murderer. After being disgraced, Latour commits suicide. Finally, Anna admits that she killed her husband and blames Keane for Latour's death. The story ends with a stunned Keane leaving the courtroom. Ethel Barrymore received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in her role as Lady Sophie Horfield, the judge's loony wife.
