Plot Synopsis

A Gentleman of Paris

Dated but powerful drama. A respected Paris judge (Arthur Wontner), in private life a philanderer, witnesses a murder under circumstances he would rather conceal. In time he has to try the case. The accused is his ex-mistress (Phyllis Konstam) and the judge declines to come forward. The jury finds her guilty. Instead of sentencing her, conscience causes the judge to at last reveal the truth, saving the life of an innocent woman at the expense of his own career.
