You know him as the great and powerful Wizard of Oz, but now "The-Man-Behind-The-Curtain" Frank Morgan is the fed-up and disgruntled Supreme Court Justice John Josephus Grant in director Ray Rowland's Capra-esque fable, A Stranger In Town.

In a small town politically corrupt and riddled with graft, the noble judge cannot resist helping local lawyer and serviceman-to-be, Bill Adams (Richard Carlson) run a clean campaign against the despotic Mayor James Connison (Robert Barrat) and his council of crooked citizens. A final courtroom showdown leads to an eloquent speech by Justice Grant about the burning responsibilities of United States citizenship, the miracle of democratic government - of, for and by the people, and the dangers of political and social indifference.

Character actor Frank Morgan stars as Supreme Court Justice John Josephus Grant, a man who decides to take a vacation from a grueling and busy work schedule to go hunting. While visiting a small town near by Justice Grant meets a young candidate for mayor and decides to take him under his wing and use his political influence to help the honest young man defeat his many corrupt opponents.
