Abstract:

The trustees of Midwestern University have forced three teachers out of their jobs for being suspected communists. Trustee Ed Keller has also threatened mild mannered English Professor Tommy Turner, because he plans to read a letter by Bartolomeo Vanzetti, the anarchist executed for murder along with his associate, Nicola Sacco, in 1927. Tommy is upset when his wife Ellen also suggests he not read the passage. Meanwhile, Ellen's old boyfriend, the football player Joe Ferguson, comes to visit for the homecoming weekend. He takes Ellen out dancing after the football rally, causing Tommy to worry that he will lose her to Joe.--Summary adapted from IMDb.
