Madeleine is a 1950 film directed by David Lean, based on a true story about Madeleine Smith, a young Glasgow woman from a wealthy family who was tried in 1857 for the murder of her lover, Emile L'Angelier. The trial was much publicised in the newspapers of the day and labelled "the trial of the century". Lean's adaptation of the story starred his wife, Ann Todd, with Ivan Desny as her French lover. Norman Wooland played the respectable suitor and Leslie Banks the authoritarian father, both of whom are unaware of Madeleine's secret life. Lean made the film primarily as a "wedding present" to Todd, who had previously played the role onstage. He was never satisfied with the film and cited it as his least-favourite feature-length movie.

Adam Hayward (Robert Montgomery), a successful …
Adam Hayward (Robert Montgomery), a successful New York City defense lawyer, receives a cable that the British war buddy who saved his life at Anzio Beach is now in trouble with the law in England. Taking the advice of his secretary to go to England rather than wire money, Adam arrives in his friend's village to find him about to stand trial for the murder of the hired stable-hand, Lawrence. Hayward learns that a witness exists who can testify that his friend, Baxter, shot Lawrence in self-defense. But the other witness is a woman who fled the scene and will not want to expose herself by coming forward. Though Hayward suspects Alex, the youthful war-widow daughter-in-law of Colonel Summerfield (himself a widower) he soon discovers that the mystery woman is the young and impressionable Sandy Summerfield, whom he must see to it is brought to the witness stand. As he is leaving the village to catch his plane, Hayward stops at Summerfield Manor to say goodbye. As he does so, he manages to bring father and daughter together. The film closes as Adam and Alex, deep in conversation, walk off into the garden.
