The Turning Point is a 1952 crime thriller directed by William Dieterle and is based on Horace McCoy's novel "Storm in the City." The Turning Point tells the story of John Conroy (Edmond O'Brien), a hot-shot prosecutor bent on ridding his town of crime by cracking down on the local crime syndicate. Conroy realizes just how idealistic he is when the number of corrupt city officials is revealed. Conroy appoints his police officer father, Matt Conroy (Tom Tully), as the chief investigator in the task force he's created, but is puzzled by Matt's reluctance to take the job. Reporter Jerry McKinnon (William Holden) knows why Matt is reluctant - he's seen the cop hanging out with mob boss Harrigan (Ted de Corsia). McKinnon and Conroy must trust their long-standing friendship to see them through the revelations of Matt's improper behavior, especially when McKinnon falls for Amanda (Alexis Smith), the daughter of John Conroy. Will the Conroy men be able to come together and complete their mission?moreless
