Witness for the Prosecution

Witness for the Prosecution was my most recent Netflix DVD; we watched it tonight. In my opinion, the movie is a bit dated. I imagine it was great when it was released, but the problem is that I've seen contemporary flicks that pulled the same tricks or better, and I read too much Agatha Christie as a youngster, so I saw things coming.

The performances are still enjoyable, though. Charles Laughton is fun as the grouchy barrister, and Marlene Dietrich is very good indeed. I can't say more about the performances without spoiling the plot twists for any of you who may see it in the future.
