4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film - well worth seeing, 7 April 2007
This review is from: Call Northside 777 [DVD] (DVD)
I first saw this film 20 years ago on a wet afternoon in winter. I'd never heard of it before despite being a huge James Stewart fan and wondered why it had passed me by. After watching it I was even more baffled as it is a wonderful film dominated by the indominatable spirit of a mother's undying love and faith in her son. He was accused of murder and despite all the evidence against him is facing the death sentence. His elderly mother works all the hours possible, even taking a job cleaning floors to earn all the money she can to help pay for a reward clearing her son. A journalist played by James Stewart takes up the case and despite his early misgivings is slowly drawn into believing the man is innocent. It is a long journey but the film doesn't drag and builds to a tense climax which leads to the man's innocence being proven as the chief witness against him is found out to have lied under oath. Based on a true story, this is a film that will sit proudly in anyone's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars and about time too, 28 Feb 2007
Thank God that after all these years a new generation of people will have the oppurtunity to feast their eyes on this work of genius by Andrew Marshall and David Renwick with a cast worth dying for. An American President (an old-time film Tarzan) with a Bible-carrying political advisor, a newly-elected British Government who (and I won't spoil it for you by saying how) join the Warsaw Pact, John Cleese as a terrorist who sends people a Demo Tape of his previous achievements with testimonies given by people who look remarkably like J.C. himself, topless newsreaders and loads more besides. A mere review doesn't do this wonderful series justice and I am so looking forward to getting my copy that I am now counting the days.
