Chewing The Scenery So Hard They Need To Floss

From Terry Teachout’s About Last Night blog (via ArtsJournal):

TT: Just because

Charles Laughton, Marlene Dietrich, Tyrone Power, and Elsa Lanchester in the denouement of Witness for the Prosecution, Billy Wilder’s film version of Agatha Christie’s play:

The hardworking staff loves this movie, despite its obvious flaws (Tyrone Power should have been shot in the first reel – no jury in the world would have convicted).

But Charles Laughton is great, and Elsa Lanchester is even greater.

Thanks, Terry. Just because.
