    I saw the movie on AMC and it reminded me of the robbery and killing of my grandfather, Francis Haddock, a policeman in Needham, during a bank robbery in 1934. i remember someone mentioning that the machine gun used in the real life shooting was stolen from an auto show, that one of the shooters was an MIT grad and that the case was reported by Dinneen who tracked the getaway car that had been burned but had a radio installed which was very unusual at that time. Dineen followed leads dealing with the installation of the radio which lead investigators to NY where the real life killers were apprehended. Dineen at the time was a reporter for a Boston newspaper and may be the actual creator of the storyline for this movie. The real life bad guys were the Miller brothers. It seems that many of the facts from the real life case were incorporated into this movie.

    Mac in the review mentioned this was a case from Massachusetts. It left me wanting to know more about theoriginal case. It meant something special to me because as a kid I went through hell one weekend due tothe same type of thing. And in a situation that couldn't have possibly been me. For the innocent, the police andthe system have too much power, so I certainly could identify strongly with the scenario. I left feeling as Fondadid in the last scene.It's too bad with 9/11 how much more power they have now to do the same thing. The two men that Rumsfeldviolated their rights I hope will one day collect big on this " abuse of power ". Enough now. Good movie. Sullivan' s performance seemed a little over the top at times but you can't help but wish you could put her in your pocket and take her home. wish I had one like her. Okay done with my diatribe. D.

  • One of her best

    Along with "Skyscraper Souls" and "Tarzan Finds a Son", Maureen's performance in this film is one of her very best. So passionate and determined in proving Fonda's innocence is her portrayal. Another comment, I don't know how any actor co-starring with Maureen could not help but fall in love with her, she is sooo adorable.

  • Not a Henry Fonda fan but...

    The bio piece that's airing on TCM was so touching with Peter abd Jane Fonda and Jimmy Steward I wanted to see more early Fonda. Well in "Let Us Live" his social commentary and range of character just grabs you. The screenplay was superb and the acting a tad overboard at times(not Fonda) and the movie grabbed me from the start and held me captive throughout. I will buy this DVD and add it to my collection. I want more early Fonda!
