Based on the true story of a musician wrongly accused of robbing an insurance company and the grave effect his predicament has on his family.
Hitchcock's ultimate point evokes cosmic terror: innocence is merely a trick of paperwork, whereas guilt is the human condition.
It's a banner title in Henry Fonda's acting repertoire, and one that works to illustrate Hitchcock's fractured psychoses.
