  • Keeps Your Interest

    The directing kept my interest. The story unfolds in an interesting way. Fades from witnesses recalling the events to visuals of the events are quite creative. But most of the witnesses are flat out lying. So you know the defendant, Nick Adams, is not guilty. Will he be found guilty? The movie's weakness is the ending. It's not particularly satisfying. So while I enjoyed the story, I'm not sure if I would watch it a second time. The star, Richard Chamberlain, is very good in his role as the defense attorney. He's likable and quite handsome. His scenes with Joan Blackman, his possible love interest, are very appealing; perhaps the best part of the movie. So sit back and enjoy a good courtroom drama, once.

  • Joey Heatherton? Seriously?

    I was galled to see Claude Rains cast in the same film as Joey ("Yes, they are real, but my brain is plastic") Heatherton. What was he thinking? Did he need the money that badly? Richard Chamberlain and Nick Adams I can see as up and comers of the time (both were gay, but closeted, sadly) with actual talent but J.H. must have had a sugar daddy in the business get her into this gig. Yeeech. A sad ending for the uber-actor, Claude Rains, whey didn't Bette Davis call him up tell him to get a grip.

    Watched after hearing Mr Chamberlain's tribute to Claude Rains.What great actors,both men.A well-worth picture to look at,Rains sly as ever,still had that look of mischief in his eyes.

    The real value in this film is Al Dewlan, the writer of the original novel. Dewlan is a great storyteller who knows how to develop character and storyline. Haven't been able to find a way to view this film . . . but I'll keep looking. The one other Dewlan movie, Ride Beyond Vengeance (from Dewlan's book, Night of the Tiger) was not particularly well done, but it followed Dewlan's story precisely, which gives it some value. I'd like to see how Twilight of Honor was done.

    Twilight of Honor is a superb piece of courtroom drama. Reminds me somewhat of James Stewart's Anatomy of a Murder. This Richard Chamberlain movie is beautifully photographed - glad it is black and white and not color and the flashbacks neatly done to pull the yarn together. James Gregory is a fine character actor, and Claude Rains, now sadly looking his age, never fails to impress. Chamberlain's idealism nicely contrasts with the seediness of a town gone badly wrong. Joey Heatherton looks delicious in this, I think, her first movie role. All top-notch entertainment.
