WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION blu-ray

The latest addition to Eureka Entertainment's Masters of Cinema label is Billy Wilder's 1957 courtroom drama Witness for the Prosecution, an adaptation of Agatha Christie's hit play. Christie famously hailed Wilder's movie as her favourite screen adaptation of her work.

Tyrone Power, Marlene Dietrich and Charles Laughton star in the film, which was nominated for six Academy Awards.

Eureka's blu-ray arrives September 10th, and will mark the blu-ray debut of Wilder's film.

Special features include a commentary by Kat Ellinger; interviews with actor Simon Callow and film scholar Neil Sinyard; an archival discussion between Wilder and director Volker Schlöndorff; and a collector's booklet.

You can check out Eureka's new trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

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