[Starring] Charles Laughton
Also starring Tyrone Power, Marlene Dietrich, Elsa Lanchester
Brisk, ill-tempered, brilliant barrister Sir Wilfrid Robarts returns to his chambers after an illness, where, much to the anguish of his private nurse, he is persuaded to take on the case of one Leonard Vole accused of murdering a wealthy widow. Circumstantial evidence against him is strong, his only defence being an alibi hinging on his wife's testimony. The trial, however, takes a dramatic turn when Vale's wife appears not as a defence witness but as a witness for the prosecution.
This film provided Laughton with one of his best later roles. Both he and his wife, Elsa Lanchester, received Oscar nominations for their superb performances.

The Lads' Night Out
Behind every successful race horse there is an owner, a trainer and a stable lad. The first two can measure their success in tens of thousands of pounds. But the stable lad is not so fortunate. His wage is low, he works long unsocial hours, and his job is dangerous. But he does have his own special charity, the Stable Lad
Welfare Trust. Just before Christmas each year the racing industry turns out for a colourful fund-raising dinner. Raffle tickets sell at £100 each, racing memorabilia are auctioned for staggering sums, and the lads themselves contribute to the evening's merrymaking by boxing one another for their employers' entertainment. By midnight many thousands of pounds have been raised
