Not Rated | | Crime, Drama, Mystery
A veteran British barrister must defend his client in a murder trial that has surprise after surprise.
[June 2008] Ranked #6 on the American Film Institute's list of the 10 greatest films in the genre "Courtroom Drama".
Wilfrid the Fox! That's what they call him, and that's what he is!
Both Sir Wilfred and Mr. Myers introduce evidence directly to the court themselves, which is against courtroom procedure. Sir Wilfred, for example, trumps Inspector Hearne's testimony by directly revealing Leonard Vole's blood type, instead of properly calling a witness with personal or professional knowledge of it.
Before the film begins, a message appears onscreen saying that to avoid ruining the effect of the surprise ending, patrons should not take their seats during the last few minutes of the movie.
