Boomerang!

Genre: Mystery and Thriller, Drama; Starring: Dana Andrews, Arthur Kennedy, Lee J. Cobb, Jane Wyatt; Director: Elia Kazan; Runtime (in minutes): 88; MPAA Rating: Unrated

Hard-hitting, documentary-style films — such as director Elia Kazan’s fact-based drama about an honest, suddenly unpopular DA (Dana Andrews) out to prove a man’s innocence in the murder of a small-town clergyman — found a receptive audience in the cynical post-WWII years. With stark seductiveness, Boomerang! shows justice being swayed by politics, ego, and public sentiment. For today’s audiences fascinated with police procedure and courtroom drama, it’s a natural for video.
