Quick Overview

Starring Alan Baxter, Andrea Leeds, Owen Davis Jr., Astrid Allwyn, Walter Kingsford

Directed by Phil Rosen



Print: black/white

Runtime: 71 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



It Could Happen to You is one of those captivating "little" pictures whose reputation is built

up via word of mouth. Alan Baxter and Owen Davis Jr. star as Bob and Fred, the sons of

immigrant Pa Barrett (Al Shean). Fred is a dutiful offspring, but Bob, an adoptee, is a

no-good, stealing money from the old man to further his ambitions. When Pa Barrett

confronts Bob with this discovery, the young man accidentally kills his stepfather. As fate

would have it, Fred has become a lawyer, and it is he who takes on the job of defending Bob

in court. Fred wins an acquittal, but Bob learns to his chagrin that he will never be able to

escape the "judge and jury" of his own conscience. The script for It Could Happen to You

was co-written by Nathaniel West, later the author of the trenchant anti-Hollywood novel Day

of the Locust.
