A veteran British barrister must defend his client in a murder trial that has surprise after surprise.Director: Billy WilderA Box Office hit. Marlene Dietrich allegedly had a real-life crush on Tyrone Power during shooting. According to his biographer, the actor was embarrassed by her advances. This was Elsa Lanchester last movie of 10 with her husband Charles Laughton. Elsa Lanchester used to delight in broadcasting Marlene Dietrich's secrets. Though Dietrich was never secretive about her famous "face tape lifts," Unsure if he could realistically play a man with a heart condition, Charles Laughton staged a fake heart attack in the pool one day at home. Elsa Lanchester, and a friend panicked and pulled him from the water, at which point he explained his trick. How Lanchester's reacted has not been recorded. But they did stay married. The producers were so concerned about the financial success of the film that during the credits, an announcer urges the audience not to reveal the film's ending to anyone.
South korean NTSC all region import, sleeve contains english and asian text. Plays in English with optional English/Korean sub titles. Run time 116 mins Good quality but this item has not been remastered and is duplicated from original prints so please do not expect anything like high definition. Full refund if not satisfied.
Having watched a serialized update of this, I had to go back and watch this 1957 release, Dietrich, Leighton and Power are all superb.
