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.

Good old Johnny MillsReviewed bydonaldgordon797Vote: 9/10

Having been stuck in the house on a cold winter afternoon I switched on Channel 4 to view their afternoon film Town on Trial and am I glad I did This is a hidden gem of a movie. It will keep you guessing right up to the end who the murderer is. Try and spot Dandy Nichols in a bit part(this is what I love about these old fifties films,spotting actors who go on to greater things) If you can get a copy to rent you will not be disappointed. I give it nine out of ten

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.
