| Excellent court drama
This was really an exciting film to watch. Great performance by Lionel Atwill as a lawyer defending his son accused for murdering a shrewd gold digger played by the wonderful Greta Nissen. Trying to con innocent men from falling for her charms backfires and results in a murder that has several twist before resolved. The film has both atmosphere and drama. It moves quickly from court room to the scene of the crime. The actors portrays the characters with personality and talent. It is interesting to watch Greta Nissen in a role that makes her look and act like Jean Harlow. It was Jean Harlow that replaced Nissen when Howard Hughs decided to re-shoot HELLS ANGELS (1930) and make it into a sound film. But Greta Nissen proves in this film that she was a star to be reckoned with. Enjoy this gem and lets hope that Fox will restore "Silent Witness" to its glory and release it on video/DVD... We are allowed to hope !
