| An average film of its kind
THREE WITNESSES is a rather ordinary murder mystery to come out of Britain. The action is centred in and around a law firm which is riven by rivalry and conflict between two brothers with very different ideas and their scheming manager. When a man is found shot dead at the bottom of a staircase, a friendly solicitor decides to investigate in a bid to discover the identity of the murderer.

This film is a little confusing due to the casting, namely the presence of popular actors of the day Henry Kendall (THE GHOST CAMERA) and Sebastian Shaw (RETURN OF THE JEDI) who look almost exactly the same as each other. There are a lot of back and forth moments where it takes the viewer a moment to work out which character is on the screen, but neither actor has a very distinguished part to play. Kendall's protagonist is quite ordinary and average while Shaw never quite gets to grips with the accused character he portrays.

As for the murder mystery elements, they're rather obviously done and the identity of the murder is easy to guess about halfway through the proceedings. There's a good pace to keep things moving along and a little comic relief here and there but THREE WITNESSES is very much an average film of its type.
