      Witness for the Prosecution is absolutely wonderful. The plot takes so many unexpected twists and turns that it keeps the viewers head spinning. In fact, by the time you get to the end, it’s like — wow! Incredibly, at the end of this film, the producer comes out and requests that viewers don’t spoil the ending for those who haven’t seen it yet.

      Now that was different.

      Charles Laughton plays the British barrister who handles the defense on what seems like a sure-fire guilty verdict against the very handsome Leonard Vole. Marlene Dietrich is Christine Vole, with Elsa Lanchester as Miss Plimsoll, the nurse.

      The whole story is wrapped around Sir Wilfred’s defense of Vole. It’s quite the mystery, and it’s wonderful to try and see if you ...

      • can follow along and figure out the clues for yourself. Unless you’re an expert, you can’t. There are a lot of stunning turns in this story. Laughton sports a monocle in his role, and that’s intriguing on its own.

        Dietrich is absolutely sensational as Christine Vole. She is at her husband’s side, fighting for his life. She tries to help Sir Wilfried

        as much as possible. I haven’t seen a lot of Dietrich’s performances, but she has a terrific reputation, and after watching Witness for the Prosecution, it’s easy to understand why.

        I recommend watching Witness for the Prosecution when you can sit back and really focus on it. If you multi-task, you’ll miss the true pleasure of it. It’s black and white, and it’s a delight.
