JOHN M. SLATON

Stars Walter Matthau. Public outrage influences the 1913 trial of Leo Frank, accused of a vicious murder, and he is sentenced to death. Doubting Frank's guilt, Georgia Governor Slaton ignores popular sentiment and conducts a personal investigation. He commutes Frank's sentence to life imprisonment, but he cannot prevent his lynching. Issues: anti-Semitism, mob rule vs. due process, and guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
