Witness for the Prosecution is a 1957 American courtroom drama film based on a short story (and later play) by Agatha Christie dealing with the trial of a man accused of murder. Witness for the Prosecution was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Charles Laughton), Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Elsa Lanchester), Best Director, Best Film Editing, Best Picture, and Best Sound. Vole is accused of murdering Ms. Emily French (Norma Varden), a rich, older woman who had become enamored of him, going so far as to make him the main beneficiary of her will. Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. This trial movie was the first film adaptation of the story, stars Tyrone Power, Marlene Dietrich, and Charles Laughton, and features Elsa Lanchester, Laughton' s wife. The movie was adapted by Larry Marcus, Harry Kurnitz and the film' s director Billy Wilder. Sir Wilfred Robarts (Charles Laughton), a master barrister in ill health, takes Leonard Vole (Tyrone Power) on as a client, over the protestations of his private nurse, Miss Plimsoll (Elsa Lanchester), that the doctor had told him to stay away from criminal cases.
