50’s murder trial movie with “rotten daughter”

I think what I’m rememering a 1950s movie about a murder trial, where the accused is the spoiled rotten daughter of a woman who was played by, or resembled, Shirley Winters.  The daughter took the mother for everything she had during the trial, and at the end defiantly put on a wig to prove she was the woman who had been identified by a witness as the murderer.  If anyone can make sense of this, I’d love to know.

    1. Thank you SO much! This movie has been on my mind on and off for years, and after I posted the question I immediately forgot what site I posted it it on, so it has taken me some time to make my way back here. Now I’m on a mission from God to figure out how to see the movie again and get it off my head once and for all! 🙂

Got something to say?
