Charles Laughton is brilliant here, nobody wears a scowl quite like he does. It's a well spun movie that gives us some great suspense and great performances through a high degree of star power.

This was truly amazing, I enjoyed it a lot, I was completely immersed through the entire duration of the film.
The end caught me off guard, I went through many emotions in only a few minutes. spoiler

Extremely well directed and acted... the script is just a bomb waiting to explode at the end. Wilder is a master!

Great movie, Laughton was nothing less than amazing. The ending was also very good. Although i do agree with CrumbThumber on the final part, they should have left that out.

One of the best courtroom dramas ever made.

Charles Laughton was one hell of an actor.

Agatha Christie, who wrote Witness for the Prosecution as a stage play, might have struggled with the format because it's as a whodunit, it doesn't have very many suspects, so you've probably figured it out as one of your solutions by the time it's revealed. Further, I kind of resent the fact that we're definitely supposed to be "with" the barrister for the defense, who is meant to be very clever, but he's not really going to come up with the solution, and is handed it in the climax. It may be that Christie, or at least Wylder, means for his arrogance to be his undoing in this case, but the fault is treated as comedy so it hardly seems justified to have him suffer for his hubris. That said, it's a highly watchable courtroom drama with a wonderful performance from Charles Laughton as a cardiac attorney sweating through cross-examinations and grand-standing with all the personality that's afforded him. The bit with the shining monocle is iconic. Nothing can break the spell weaved by Laughton, not even the melodramatic finish.

Mr Montage

A little bit slow paced at the start, a but man what movie once it got going. Also was that a anti-spoiler PSA during the end credits?

I was wondering if the courtroom is the same of The Paradine Case. Is it?
