Made at least 50 years ago, (may have been re-done I don't know)

Two guys talking about the death penalty (I think) one argues how easy it would be for an innocent man to be convicted of a capital crime, so he sets out to prove it, his safety net being that his friend knows the truth and will step in at the last minute to save him from execution.

Slight flaw in plan however, man is convicted and sentenced to die but his friend is killed and cannot come forward to save him.

That's the gist of it anyway.

Any ideas?

@lovejoy,
Good question.

I know these aren't the one's you're talking about, but makes me think of "Stangers on a Train", or more recently "The Life of David Gale"

consider this my bump

@jcboy,
I like anything with Kevin Spacey.

I loved "Beyond the Sea" because of the fantasy dance scenes.

@chai2,
I do too, I even liked him in Seven with Brad Pitt.

Remember he played the killer.

@lovejoy,
Interesting movie -- one of the few in which George MacReady played the lead role. He had a facial scar from an auto accident that prevented him from playing romantic leads but which gave him an air of vague menace, perfect for playing suave villains. He's best remembered from his roles in Paths of Glory and Gilda, where he was one-third of a deadly love triangle with Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford:
