NotesCourt room drama in which Streisand plays a prostitute who has killed one of her clients. She comes from an upper middle-class family and her parents want her declared 'insane'. But Streisand learning this would put her inside a mental hospital for longer than she'd get gaol-time pleads innocent. In this film Streisand keeps her head above water thanks to a series of cliches which absolve her of most things like murder and being a prostitute. Did you imagine Streisand would play an ordinary prostitute? After all she produced the film and its her ego which wins the day. The Streisand who was so good in "What's Up, Doc?" has disappeared down some wormhole.
