The pilot film for the series "Temple Houston," which was originally to be shown on television. Warner Bros. felt that the series would get an extra pump if released as a feature film. The story is a simple-minded courtroom drama with Hunter as a frontier lawyer defending former girlfriend Moore on a charge of murder. Hunter sleepwalks through this undramatic waste of time, perhaps the fault of executive producer Jack Webb who is known for soporific films and television shows. Directed by actor Conrad. Webb, at the time of this film, was head of Warner Bros. television production.
