Based on a short story by Agatha Christie but greatly expanded in the screenplay by Billy Wilder, this film tells the story of Leonard Vole (Power) who is charged with the murder of a rich, middle-aged widow. The famous English barrister Sir Wilfrid Robarts (Laughton) agrees to be his defense attorney. But his only alibi is his wife (Dietrich) who agrees to be a witness not for the defense but for the prosecution.
