Witness for the Prosecution Previous Broadcasts

(1957) (Episode #1023H)

KQED 9: Sat, Feb 11, 2012 -- 9:47 PM

When Leonard Vole (Tyrone Power in his final film) is arrested for the sensational murder of a rich widow, barrister Sir Wilfrid Robarts (Charles Laughton), recovering from a recent heart attack, agrees to appear on his behalf. Vole's only alibi is his wife, the calm and coldly calculating Christine Vole (Marlene Dietrich), who agrees to be a witness not for the defense, but for the prosecution. Laughton's real-life wife, Elsa Lanchester, plays Miss Plimsoll, his over-solicitous nurse. Based on an Agatha Christie tale, this trial features many twists and surprises. Directed by Billy Wilder.
