Elmer Rice adapted his hit play and Wyler confidently choreographed the mix of legalese, soap opera, and snappy banter that offered an ideal lead role for legendary actor John Barrymore. Top attorney Barrymore checks the mirror when wife Doris Kenyon cheats on him, acknowledging his humble beginnings and Jewish heritage—even as his caseload grows. With Melvyn Douglas, Bebe Daniels, Isabel Jewell, Thelma Todd, and Mayo Methot.
