Tyrone Power is on trial for murder in WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION.
He’s looking at his wife played by Marlene Dietrich who is in the witness box giving evidence against him. He is crying out – why is she saying these things.He loves her so much.

Laughton, with clinical preciseness,says to her,
“Or are you not in fact a chronic and habitual LIAR?”
