Time Without Pity

Director: Joseph Losey
Year Released: 1957
Rating: 1.5

Michael Redgrave, fresh out of the drunk tank, has to quell those DTs long enough to save his son from being hanged for murder. Since the picture lets you know from the beginning the kid's innocent - and makes most everyone else appear guilty or just plain suspicious - Redgrave's quest for redemption attains plausibility, but the acting (overall) is over-ripe and the conclusion ridiculous. Losey's output was spotty at best, and this is one of his duds.
