Great thriller with superb classical interpretations. The plot moves sometimes too lazily.
Review By: Andres Gomez

I might be asking for trouble here, but did Charles Laughton ever actually make a bad film? He leads this one as the brilliant but curmudgeonly barrister “Sir Wildred Robarts” with oodles of charisma and style. Marlene Dietrich portrays the evil, manipulative “Christine Vole” marvellously and even Tyrone Power, more the matinée idol than the serious actor, delivers as required in Billy Wilder’s outstanding rendition of the Agatha Christie story about a man accused of murdering an elderly lady who has just happened to leave him a great deal of money in her will. Elsa Lanchester is suitably annoying/scary/lovable as the nurse trying to keep her ailing charge from keeling over mid-trial and a slew of other capable British actors – including a wonderfully charismatic turn from Una O’Connor in the witness box – fill in the supporting roles well. It is one of those very rare occasions where everything just gels perfectly and it really is fun to watch. Some of Laughton’s wry asides and put-down lines are genuinely laugh out loud too. Had it not come up against “Bridge on the River Kwai” then I’m sure it would have garnered at least one Oscar!

A Hitchcockian Billy Wilder
At the end of the day the films you give top marks are those films that become constant companions. You can see them again at the drop of a hat, you show them to people who have never see them and it’s always a triumph. “Witness For The Prosecution” is one of those wonders. Suspend your disbelief for a couple of hours and enjoy this banquet of a romp. Charles Laughton showed here what he was made of better, more clearly and more loudly than in any other film and all of his films, at least the moments with him in it, are unforgettable – Captain Blight or Henry VIII, Quasimodo or that malefic Senator from South Carolina. Here the severity of his lawyer by vocation takes your senses away with his masterful judicial way to see logic and it’s such an incredible fun to watch him do it. Tyrone Power is a toy in his hands but not Marlene Dietrich who stands her ground, not merely as a character but as a presence on the screen. Billy Wilder visits early Hitchcock territory with wit and fun. Elsa Lanchester’s nurse is the cherry on top of this delightful film.

This had me to the bitter end!
I love it when a movie captivates me, carries me along, then surprises me at the end. This is a masterpiece of human maneuvering. It has outstanding acting and a plot to die for. This is a fairly pedestrian Agatha Christie short story. I’m not saying it’s not a wonderful story, just that it doesn’t come to life like it does on the screen. Charles Laughton is the wonder barrister who is taking the case, even though he is in poor health. The murder case seems a relatively simple one until we begin to trip over the many layers left lying on the path. Marlene Dietrich does a masterful job in all her roles (I won’t say anymore than that so I don’t spoil the ending). Tyrone Power is able to balance his pathos and his potential guilt. The beauty of the movie is that it never takes itself too seriously. There are some modestly funny subplots and a great deal of careful investigation. I guarantee you that once you start watching, you won’t be able to turn it off.
