    Story
    "One of the best movie mysteries ever..."

    I fell in love with the work of Charles Laughton after watching him in Witness For the Prosecution. So having listened to this short story I am naturally disappointed to find his character far simpler and less brilliant than Laughton's character. In fact, the same can be said for the story itself. It is a clever idea, seemingly too tedious for a novel, yet perfect for a movie script.
