I really enjoyed seeing Charles Laughton's wheezy lawyer navigate the exciting twists and turns of this courtroom drama. With a sharply-written story from master storyteller Billy Wilder, this film never lets off the gas pedal.

This is on my top movies list for a reason. Never has Tyrone Power been in better form. Also Marlene Dietrich and Charles Laughton were outstanding. Since I adore Billy Wilder to pieces, I thought the movie was a solid 9/10, until the end which made it a 10/10 and automatically one of my favorite movies ever. With the exception of Julie Delpy in white I have never hated a character as much as I hated Marlene's. OH BOY SHE MADE MY BLOOD BOIL!

A long winded courtroom drama that I thought was pretty predictable. While the performances where good enough, I was never entertained. Marlene Dietrich does a fine job, but a times, she over acts. This is a bit dated, and nothing special here (at least in my mind).
