Screen legends Tyrone Power (The Mark of Zorro), Marlene Dietrich (The Blue Angel) and Charles Laughton (The Suspect) star in this splendidly entertaining courtroom classic about a man on trial for a wealthy widow’s murder after he suspiciously profits from her will. His only hope for acquittal is his wife’s testimony, but his airtight alibi shatters when she reveals some shocking secrets of her own. In order to maximize the film’s effect upon its audience, producers kept the set carefully guarded to prevent its crucial plot twists from leaking to the public. Directed by the brilliant Billy Wilder (Stalag 17, Some Like It Hot, The Apartment), scripted by Wilder and Harry Kurnitz (A Shot in the Dark) and based on the hit London play by mystery master Agatha Christie (Murder on the Orient Express, Death on the Nile), this thunderbolt of a film “crackles with emotional electricity” (The New York Times) and continues to keep movie lovers riveted until the final, mesmerizing frame. Boasting 6 Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Director, Actor (Laughton) and Supporting Actress (Elsa Lanchester, Bride of Frankenstein).
