Presumed Innocent (1990) with Harrison Ford is one of my favorite movies. Great legal thriller, lots of twists and turns, a murder, a few steamy sex scenes, and a surprise ending that blew me AWAY. Wow.



I read the book by Scott Turow cover to cover back when it came out in 1987, and I've lost count of the number of times I've watched the movie. I even love the music.

But one thing has bugged me: How did Harrison Ford's wife know he had an affair with the prosecutor Carolyn? She knew, because she made some remarks early in the movie as the story of Carolyn's murder was on the news.

Did he confess?
Did he get caught?
Did wife follow him?
Or, is the reader/viewer supposed to "fill in the blank"?

CAREFUL...No Spoilers, please...anyone wishing to discuss spoiler details please PM me.

Thanks!
