A solicitor investigates a crime for which a former Resistance member has been framed
This crime drama was originally released in France as Je plaide non coupable (‘I plead not guilty’) before being released in England and it features a stock shot of an LMS ‘Royal Scot’ Class 6P 4-6-0 on an express, which as usual is taken from Brief Encounter (1945) (qv).
