5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising, intelligent, and entertaining. July 3 2011
Format:DVD
Review for Fox Video DVD 2008 release of Witness for the Prosecution.

The picture and sound quality are flawless.

A movie from Billy Wilder. It's a courtroom drama. It's well cast and the acting is great. They're believable. The way it's filmed reminds me of an Alfred Hitchcock movie. It's Intelligent, entertaining, dramatic with a twist of funny, twists, and suprises.

Definately deserves a spot in your movie collection. Worth the money and time you'll spend on it.

I envy anyone watching it for the first time! You'll be left satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charles Laughton Feb. 16 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Many people consider this to be Tyrone Power's best and Marlene Deitrich plays the stero-typically unemotional German woman to a "T", in director, Billy Widler's movie. In my opinion, however, it is Charles Laughton who steals the show.

The dialogue his character has and the way he delivers it against the acting of his long-time wife, Elsa Lanchester, is just delightful. An excellent story and well worth watching for it's an early Hollywood example of a twist in the ending. One cannot be too surprised by the ending, though, considering the story was written by Agatha Christie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining drama May 6 2012
By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Leonard Vole (Tyrone Power), an American living in London, is accused of killing an older woman who befriended him. His defense barrister (Charles Laughton) is convinced of the man's innocence but puzzled over the peculiar behavior of Mrs. Vole (Marlene Dietrich).

This movie's trailer touts the 'shocking' ending and, I have to say, I did find it so surprising that I immediately rewound the tape to watch and enjoy it again. Power is slick, handsome, and appears too old to always be called 'young man' by his lawyer, but is otherwise very good. Laughton is the real star of the show and gives an outstanding performance full of wit and passion. His scenes with Elsa Lanchester are very funny. Dietrich is mysterious until the very end, the epitome of an icy, cool, and calculating female. This is a very British story, with most of the action set in a courtroom. The dialogue is spirited and the pace is quick.

I had expected the movie to be dated and a bit dull, but I enjoyed it thoroughly.

One must review the testimony given by Marlena Dietrich to be sure that Sir Wilfred ( Charles Laughton at his best)
will get her acquitted. He will.

The acting is superb! Brilliant courtroom drama with many surprises. Loved Charles Laughton as the shrewd barrister who added humor to the plot with some of his antics! The ending was completely unexpected. Never saw it coming. Highly recommend this movie!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great characters in conflict. June 21 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The movie is interesting because we see Marlene Dietrich and Tyrone Power in opposite characters from the outside and inside. One of the best movie and do not forget in the interpretation of Elsa Lanchester.
