A man's wife testifies against him at his murder trial.

Very entertaining, especially Laughton's performance. I think snarky wit is the foundation of the English legal process. I never would have seen the ending coming even if I'd had reason to expect a twist - but I didn't have reason, because it still would have been a good movie without the twist. ( )
