Time Without Pity (1957) is a thriller about a father trying to save his son from execution for murder.

It stars Michael Redgrave, Ann Todd, and Leo McKern.


David Graham, a recovering alcoholic, returns to England with only 24 hours to save his son, Alec, from hanging for the murder of Alec's girlfriend, Jenny Cole.

His sobriety in constant jeopardy, David begins to investigate the circumstances surrounding the girl's murder, visiting the home of wealthy car magnate Robert Stanford, where she was killed. Graham finds a number of possible suspects, including Stanford's young wife, Honor, his secretary Vickie Harker, and Alec's friend Brian, who is Stanford's adopted son.

With the Home Office on standby to receive any overwhelming evidence proving Alec's innocence, Graham is forced to extreme measures to try to establish the real killer's guilt.
