[A] witty and gripping adaptation of her [Agatha Christie's] twist-heavy courtroom stage drama.

Witness For The Prosecution has the pace and patience of live theater, but not the look. Wilder doesn't get overly flashy with camera moves and angles, but he does shift positioning subtly and effectively.
