In 1958 Billy Wilder made one of the best film adaptations of an AgathaChristie story when he directed WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION, withCharles Laughton, Marlene Dietrich, Tyrone Power, Elsa Lanchester, andUna O'Connor. It is one of those mystery films that, even when youunderstand the trick, does n...
In 1954, when the efficient but bitter and stubborn barrister SirWilfrid Robarts (Ralph Richardson) returns to his office in Londonrecovering from a heart attack, he is invited to defend Leonard StephenVole (Beau Bridges), who is the prime suspect in a murder case. Leonardis a former soldier that fo...
I benefited by watching the 1957 version and this one within hours ofeach other. Each has it's weaknesses and strengths. The major weakness IMO of thisversion was the music used. It intruded and didn't match the mood ofthe story. Though Ralph Richardson's portrayal doesn't have the bravadoof Charles...
The better version of Witness For The Prosecution,starring a veryremarkable Diana Rigg as a frosty and yet highly intense dark lady,andpresenting the most compelling courtroom drama ever seen on thescreen,with a duel to death among an ambitious and insinuatingprosecutor played with his usual malicio...
This remake of the Laughton/Power/Dietrich film is quite enjoyable, owingtoskillful casting, top production values, and, of course, Dame Christie'scracking good story. Sadly, the only liability is the performance of SirRalph Richardson (It's almost unspeakable to say this; I feel like Brutusplunging...
While this TV remake of the classic 1957 Billy Wilder film can't hold acandle to the original, it's fun if taken on its own. It's well cast andhas a beautiful period feel. And let's face it, any chance to see DianaRigg is a welcome one!!...
Sorry but I find the original a bit slow. The original court case isprobably more dramatic. However, I like the cast better in this newerrendition and wish it was available on DVD. Diana Rigg as always is great.Deborah Kerr and Donald Pleasance also turn in goodperformances....
The play is a lot of fun that keeps you guessing until the end, andBilly Wilder's film is one of the best Agatha Christie film adaptationsin my opinion. So this TV film had much to live up to. And it did so ina worthy way, and generally compares favourably. The music score can bea little too obtrusi...
Excellent TV version of the Agatha Christie classic with an amazingarray of talent for this type of enterprise. This is the sort of highquality fare that was standard on American television in the 70s & 80sand is sadly missing today. Bridges is okay but miscast. Leonard Vole needs to be played by so...
Those who know Diana Rigg mainly for a famous TV series are probablyunaware of his classical training and her distinguished stage career.in this Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, Dame Diana is "the witness" andshe carries the story from beginning to end. Sir Ralph Richardson, asthe lead barrister for the...
This is Dame Agatha at her best. I also have the 1957 original, but Igottatell you this version is far better! Credit Diana Rigg for that, shestealsthe show and gives a towering performance.The film starts when Janet is on her way back to the house(WendyHiller)Shehears two people-she sees one of the...
This 1982 TV film boasts a grand cast (with a notable exception), goodcamera-work, sets, and lighting. The 1957 version made in Hollywoodcast Hollywood actors-most of them British residents. The exception tothat was Tyrone Power, although there was no mention in the originalstory of Leonard Vole bei...
Everyone who has seen both versions will compare. Well, CharlesLaughton and Tyrone Power in my opinion are better than RalphRichardson and Beau Bridges. Charles Laughton simply is very funny.Tyrone Power performs a more shady character. But Diana Riggs isexcellent, while Marlene Dietrich, much to my...
Witness for the Prosecution (1982) ** 1/2 (out of 4) Hallmark Hall of Fame remake of the 1957 Billy Wilder masterpiece takenfrom the Agatha Christie play. This time out it's Ralph Richardsonplaying the lawyer trying to get a man (Beau Bridges) off of murdercharges and the key bit of evidence might c...
I am amazed at the number of comments here faulting Sir RalphRichardson's performance here and praising Dame Diana Rigg's. Thesituation is, if anything, the reverse. Admittedly, I hadn't seen theBilly Wilder cinema version for some years when I watched this, andtherefore couldn't compare Sir Ralph's...
I have never liked the murder mystery genre. However, this is one of myfavorite films. I have also seen the original 1957 version starringMarleneDietrich and think this version is far better. Why ? Because this versionis more compelling, and the cast is excellent. But by far, it is becauseDiana...
Based on the same script and set-up as the famous Billy Wilder version,which starred Tyrone Power, Charles Laughton, Marlene Dietrich, andElsa Lanchester, this TV version tries to impress but doesn't quitemake it.This time around the possible murderer is Beau Bridges, RalphRichardson is the lawyer, ...
I watched Witness for the Prosecution on the "This" movie channelhoping it would be just as good as the original, but unfortunately not.It plays like a TV episode instead of a movie, and the acting is verystilted. Even the way they move feels like watching robots in motionrather than a natural perfo...
