The Case Against X

A Feature film by Richard Pottier

Produced by Société Générale de Gestion Cinématographique (SGGC), Cinéphonic, Gaumont

Release in France : 11/06/1952

    Synopsis

    Katherine is being accused of murder. The victim was a louse who was trying to destroy Katherine's latest romance by digging up evidence of an earlier indiscretion. For a while, it sure looks like Katherine did indeed commit the murder, but soon the true culprit becomes obvious (to the audience, if not the authorities).
