Incident in an Alley movie scenes

A policeman is accused of manslaughtering a 14 year old boy, but is acquitted of all charges. Still, he feels a lot of guilt and begins to doubt if he really is innocent after all. A stolen clarinet gives him a lead in his desperate hunt for the truth.

Plot

A policeman must prove the teenager he shot was a delinquent.

Production

The film was based on a TV play by Rod Serling which had aired in 1955 as part of the US Steel Hour starring Farley Granger. It was announced almost immediately the show would be turned into a play, Line of Duty as well as a film by United Artists. Clarence Greene and Russell Rouse were assigned producing duties on the film, with Serling himself doing the script. However it took several years for the film to be made.

Reception

Reviews were poor.

Chris Warfield impressed Edward Small so much the producer used him again on Diary of a Madman.
