"April 21 "But this is England, where I thought you never arrest, let alone convict, people for crimes they have not committed." "We try not to make a habit of it." Another great movie directed by Billy Wilder. Like I said before, I am not a big fan of courtroom movies, but this is one of those times where the courtroom scenes can actually interest me. The performances were great, it had some good humor and the direction was great. Also has one of the best twist endings ever."
