A skilfully constructed melodrama with a genuinely thrilling dénouement, The Great Defender tells the story of an artist wrongly accused of murdering his model, and of the efforts of an eminent KC to clear him. Featuring a characteristically powerful performance from Matheson Lang, the classical actor who became one of Britains most successful screen stars during the twenties, this superb feature is presented here in a brand-new digital transfer from original film elements.

The Great Defender

Sir Douglas Rolls is a highly respected defence lawyer of many years experience. Now in rapidly failing health, he is advised to retreat from the courtroom and pursue more pleasurable activities. But it is just at this point in his life that his great lost love – a woman his own strong sense of duty led him to give up twenty years ago, and whom he still loves deeply – walks into his chambers to ask that he defend her adulterous husband, now to stand trial for murder. Reluctantly agreeing to take on the case, Sir Douglas soon finds there is more to the story than meets the eye...
