Agatha Christie’s brainstorming novel is transformed into a highly entertaining movie. A black & white classic which will just shake your mind when you will come to know the real game going behind the whole movie. It’s a court room drama involving a husband and wife, where the suspicion keeps shifting like a pendulum but the climax is truly brilliant. The best role is of the lawyer who gets caught in the well planned game and finds himself in a strange position in the end. The movie made me a fan of Agatha Christie’s writings. A must watch for lovers of crime and court room dramas. I rate it as one of the top 5 best court room movies made all over the world.
Directed By Billy Wilder
Starring : Tyrone Power & Marlene Dietrich
