Elsa Lanchester and Charles Laughton in Witness for the Prosecution
See the picture above? You’re looking at a little too much talent for one photograph to contain. The great Elsa Lanchester and the great Charles Laughton were as talented as talented comes. Every single performance, every single scene each ever gifted us with was mesmerizing perfection.
Witness for the Prosecution is just one of the gifts they left us and is it ever a masterpiece?! The 1957 Crime/Mystery/Drama was directed by Billy Wilder and also stars Tyrone Power, Marlene Dietrich, John Williams, Una O’Connor, Norma Varden, Ian Wolfe, and Henry Daniell.
If you’ve never seen this outstanding movie, I hope you’ll find it SOON, it’s absolutely wonderful.
