Witness for the Prosecution Indy spent a lot of time in England and so juicy mystery set in London would have been of interest to him. And mysteries dont get much better than Billy Wilders crackling, Oscar-nominated adaptation of the Agatha Christie courtroom thriller. Charles Laughton earned his final lead actor nomination as an aging, ailing barrister who takes on the case of Leonard Vole (Tyrone Power), a married man accused of murdering the rich, older woman enamored with him. Marlene Dietrich plays Voles wife who has an alibi and Laughtons real-life wife Elsa Lanchester, also picked up an Oscar nomination as the attorneys nagging nurse.
