The Wrong Man, at the Wrong Place at the Wrong time
I bought this DVD because I first saw it as a kid when it came out in 1956. It is a traditional Alfred Hitchcock film, in black and white, with one exception; Hitchcok did not do a cameo. I believe it is the only one he didn't appear in. It's based om a true story of a man by tne name of Manny Ballestrero, an Italian American who plays bass in a band at a club in New York City. He's a hard working working family oriented guy who, through mere speculation by some witnesses who really aren't sure, is accused of robbery. Then the shoddy police work just about sinks Manny and could put him in prison for a very long time. Miranda rights weren't in existence until 1966, so Manny is treated like garbage. The police have him guilty before he even gets to court. Fighting the charges to prove his innocence costs Manny just about everything he has in his life, including his wife. She goes insane during the ordeal, somehow blaming herself for the bad situation the family is in. She's insitutionalized, but eventually makes somewhat of a recovery. They evenually catch the real robber and the two men very much alike, and they dress alike. This is a very good film about a classic case of mistaken identity; something that could happen to any one of us, at any time. I highly recommend it, it is riveting and you'll find yourself "in the plot" as you wish there was something you could do to help Manny. I could definitely see a remake of this film. Read full review

The Wrong Man - 1956 - Alfred Hitchcock
The 1956 classic Alfred Hitchcock movie. Filmed in and around New York City, New York. Plot summary: Manny Ballestero is an honest hardworking musician at New York's Stork Club. When his wife needs money for dental treatment, Manny goes to the local insurance office to borrow on her policy. Employees at the office mistake him for a hold-up man who robbed them the year before and the police are called. The film tells the true story of what happened to Manny and his family.

An Interesting Film
A very interesting and well acted film. It fits in naturally with one of Hitchcock's basic themes - an innocent man caught up in circumstances beyond his control. I would recommend it to anyone.

henry fonda was a brilliant actor
The best thing that still makes this film stand up today is henry fonda's perfprmance, and the creative genius of hitchcock.
