Billy Wilder evokes both Hitchcock and Lang when directing this smartly written trial movie that ends on a couple neat twists. Charles Laughton is the capable defense attorney; Tyrone Power the fearful defendant; and Marlene Dietrich is his mysterious wife who has secrets of her own.

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.
