Life Response in 'The Verdict'

I saw the film The Verdict again. I saw something new. At one point his partner said that things looked bleak and hopeless regarding the current case -- and indeed -- they did. His partner also suggested that there would be other court cases in the future. However, Frank insisted that no, THIS was the case. THIS was the case, which he repeated over and over. The power of intention was so great that shortly thereafter he discovered the missing witness in the form of the former nurse that would win him the case. Also, the betrayal by the woman who was his lover was suddenly revealed. It was double good fortune for Frank; i.e. it was life responding to the release of powerful energies emanating from Frank's Will. His power of intention (and his decisions and actions that followed it) was so great that it overwhelmed and overtook every other obstacle. His whole existence, which until that point had been a failure in his own mind, was now tied to that staggering intention. He then attracted Truth to his side, which nearly everyone recognized, including the crooked judge.
