Witness for the Prosecution (1957) Blu Ray (Eureka!)

Billy Wilder's adaptation of Agatha Christie's stage play is one of cinema's finest courtroom dramas. It features plenty of tension, a few surprise twists and even a surprising amount of comedy courtesy of rotund star Charles Laughton and his real-life wife, Elsa Lanchester.

Inherit the Wind (1960) Blu Ray & DVD (Eureka!)

Stanley Kramer’s depiction of religious fundamentalism and group dynamics in a Bible Belt town remains all-too-relevant today. Its success centres on the powerhouse performances of Spencer Tracy and Fredric March, along with a cynically witty turn by Gene Kelly.
