A lawyer must decide whether to help an ex-lover beat a murder rap in the compelling courtroom drama For the Defense starring William Powell and Kay Francis. The slickest criminal defense attorney in New York, William Foster (Powell), refuses to wed girlfriend Irene Manners (Francis), declaring he is not the marrying kind. When she steps out with Jack Defoe (Scott Kolk), their late-night date ends in a manslaughter charge after his car strikes and kills a pedestrian. Pressured by Irene to defend him, only to learn she was behind the wheel, the shaken lawyer must choose whether to let Defoe take the fall or send the woman he loved up the river.
