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.
