Forgotten Noir Vol. 13 – Eye Witness/Breakdown

Eye Witness (Your Witness) – Made in the Hitchcock style (and produced by longtime Hitchcock partner Joan Harrison), this witty English-made mystery/courtroom drama stars Robert Montgomery (who also directed) as a New York lawyer who comes to England to help a wartime pal (Michael Ripper) wrongly accused of murder.

Breakdown – There’s action and drama in AND out of the ring when an ex-convict (William Bishop) becomes a rising heavyweight fighter and a championship contender–and then, on the eve of the big fight, finds the man who can prove that he was framed for the crime for which he served time.
