Incident in an Alley is a 1962 film.[1]


A policeman must prove the teenager he shot was a delinquent.


The film was based on a TV play by Rod Serling which had aired in 1955 as part of the US Steel Hour starring Farley Granger.[2] It was announced almost immediately the show would be turned into a play, Line of Duty as well as a film by United Artists.[3] Clarence Greene and Russell Rouse were assigned producing duties on the film, with Serling himself doing the script.[4][5] However it took several years for the film to be made.


Reviews were poor.[6]

Chris Warfield impressed Edward Small so much the producer used him again on Diary of a Madman.[7]
