Actor/writer Simon Callow discusses Billy Wilder’s WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION (1957) in relation to Charles Laughton, his performance in the film and his career as both an actor and director of stage and screen. »This interview with Laughton biographer Simon Callow is captivating from the off due to Callow’s unbridled enthusiasm for his subject. [He provides] details on Laughton’s personal life and his troubled relationship with Elsa Lanchester, praise for an adaptation that he believes ›improves immeasurably on the play,‹ and some revealing titbits about the making of the film« (Slarek, Cineoutsider.com). »This feature is nowhere near long enough, Callow’s such an interesting interviewee and commanding presence who clearly adores his subject matter« (Hel Harding-Jones, TheDigitalFix.com).
