The reviewers from the U.S.A. invariably use the expression "talky" for a film with a surfeit of words in the screen play, so I was surprised to read the two other reviewers who seem to hail from the U.S.A. praising this film as I considered it too "talky".I found Michael Redgrave hiding behind that beard and moustache playing the French defence counsel rather distracting as well as Kieron Moore who could only communicate with sign language as he played the deaf & dumb mute arrested for the murder.It may have been a long day for me but I found myself drifting off during Michael's long legal discourse and losing interest in the characters and the plot.Ann Todd always seems to play rather frigid roles in the parts in which I have seen her act.
At least the denouement of who was the real murderer kept one guessing which in accordance with IMDb policy I will not reveal.In answer as to the question why this movie is not on DVD in the USA, I readily obtained my copy from "www.myrarefilms.co.uk" and which I awarded 6/10.
