Our rating:

Barbara Stanwyck witnesses her neighbor, George Sanders, commit a murder. She calls the police but since they can't find a body, they think she is mistaken, but Sanders learns she saw his deed, enters her apartment, forges letters on her typewriter that make her appear insane, and takes them to the police. Stanwyck endures a trip to the mental hospital, after which she confronts the murderer. A clever crime melodrama.

Witness to Murder (1954) features an early, uncredited role for character actor Claude Aikens, playing a police officer. Aikens is best remembered as Sheriff Lobo on television's The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo and BJ and the Bear.
