Editorial Reviews

Ray Milland plays a barrister whose daughter is killed in a "hit-and-run" accident. When his neighbor is also killed, evidence points to the barrister as the murderer. Did he do it? Is he insane? The trial begins...

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
1968's 'Hostile Witness' is a light but well-staged U.K. courtroom 'whodunit' written by playwright Jack Roffey (based on his play of the same name) and, notably, directed by its star Ray Milland (whose other such efforts include 1958's 'The Safecracker' and 1962's 'Panic in the Year Zero'). The briskly paced plot-- a respectable murder-mystery solved at trial by prime suspect/former prosecutor Milland, who's forced ultimately to represent himself-- and fine roster of seasoned British character actors provide enough nuance, humor and suspense to keep you contentedly in your seat (if not quite on the edge of it) for the film's somewhat bulky 100-minute running time. The MGM DVD-R (I'm sick of complaining about this cheap format) looks very nice, with rich color reproduction in a clear anamorphic widescreen print encumbered only by a few artifacts here and there. Presentation and content together earn a solid 3 1/2 stars.

Note (anti-*SPOILER*): If you don't want to know whodunit, do NOT look too closely at the thoughtlessly compiled cover image!

I am a fan of the old classic movies. This is an interesting movie with a great actor Ray Milland who has made many classic movie's such as Dial M For Murder by Alfred Hitchcock being one.

Good mystery story line. Classy, dignified acting by Ray Milland. As always a gentlemen - stylish with a highly articulate, resonant voice.
