When a wealthy widow is found murdered, her married suitor, Leonard Vole (Power), is accused of the crime. Vole's only hope for acquittal is the testimony of his wife (Dietrich)... but his airtight alibi shatters when she reveals some shocking secrets of her own!

The story by Agathe Christie is gripping as usual, with it's endless twists and totally unforseen ending. The acting is excellent. Tyrone Power is good but not extraordinary. Marlen Dietrich gives us a superb performance, very authoritative and totally believable. She really was a superb actress. In my opinion the real star of the film is Charles Laughton, both witty and funny at times and at the same time very serious when the role demands it, giving one of his best performances ever.
The blu-ray transfer is excellent, providing a very crisp and clear image, even when projected to fill in a large 5 X 3 ft screen.
I highly recommend this film.
