The Reviews for Town on Trial (1957) 1080p


One of the strangest intros I can recallReviewed byMartinHaferVote: 7/10

When "Town on Trial" begins, you hear the voice of the murderer before he commits the crime! You see him looking at pretty Molly at the country club...and you hear him saying how she has it coming because she's one of THOSE sort of girls! Well, Molly certainly was pretty and liked to show off her figure...and the sicko thought this meant he was entitled to kill her!!

Police Superintendent Halloran (John Mills) is assigned to the case. And, unfortunately, it's not a quick and easy case to solve...and some of it is because the rich folks he questions sometimes have a strong sense of entitlement. In fact, the more he investigates, the more these folks put pressure on his superiors to take him off the case! What's to come of this?

This is a very good film. Sure, the story is good but the reason I liked it was the very fine acting of Mills. He was a heck of a good actor and made even average material well above average. Well worth your time.

Quite a decent murder mystery, if dated...Reviewed byTim KidnerVote: 6/10

The main reason to watch this movie now, for me - and I guess most - is for John Mills, as the firm but fair Scotland Yard Inspector Detective, who has to solve a couple of murders of young women in a sleepy Home Counties town in England.

It's all about the rather sermonising 1950's "respectable" folk who wag their fingers at a local beauty - a Marilyn Monroe (sort of) lookalike who carries on with married men and flaunts her curvy figure at the local snobbish Sports Club, the elitism of which extends beyond their usual, especially as the membership secretary is a fan of hers....

One night, she is strangled and of course, a whole array of the obvious candidates spring up, some red herrings and some real. Charles Coburn as a disgraced GP and Derek Farr who has more business fingers in more pies than are reasonable are two of the more recognisable stars that come under the Inspector's radar.

The film is well enough made, the story complex enough to satisfy the average amateur sleuth and John Mills is sturdy, even if his 'romance' with one of the deceased young friends is both awkward and frankly, ridiculous. There's also a pretty meaty and suspenseful ending, that Hitchcock himself might have come up with.

What a disappointmentReviewed byposthouse94Vote: 5/10

I taped the film from C4 and watched it yesterday. I agree it was very disjointed. John Mills was cast completely against character and was not very convincing.Did anyone else notice a scene repeat? After Elizabeth Seal was murdered at the dance, John Mills interviewed Charles Coburn in a side room. He came out of the room to speak to Barbara Bates then instructed a Police Officer to take her home, then is shown coming out of the room again to see her before the next scene! What struck me most was the fact that the Police cars were invariably driven too fast. Charles Coburn was I thought the best actor on show. Nice to see Harry Fowler playing the band leader for a change rather than a spiv.
