Writer-director Henry Edwards does "triple duty" as star of The Hanging Judge. Edwards plays Dick Veasey, the son of stern, unforgiving jurist Sir John Veasey (Hamilton Stewart). Disowned by his father, Dick becomes a newspaperman and a staunch advocate of British legal reform. One of his first acts is to marry Molly (Chrissie White, Edwards' real-life wife), the daughter of a man whom Sir John had sent to prison. Proving that Molly's dad was innocent, Dick is able to orchestrate a reconciliation with his repentant father. The Hanging Judge was based on a play by Leon M. Lion.
