This should be easy. Many years ago I saw a film in which, near the end, the heroine hears voices from either the past, or from a trial, I forget which. She is sitting motionless, and as each new voice starts, the lighting on her changes dramatically. It is a study in Hollywood lighting, and now that I'm a photographer, I'd love to see it again. I think it was a Hitchcock film.

@Canonsteinway,
Was it 'Witness For The Prosecution' - Marlene Dietrich?

@Canonsteinway,
Maybe it's Dial M for Murder - at the end the judge reads several statements with the focus just on the heroine (Grace Kelly), and I believe the lighting does change. It's a GREAT MOVIE in any event, one of my faves, even if it's not the one you want. :~)

@shunammite,
I agree. That scene in Dial M for Murder may be what Canonsteinway is looking for.

@ragnel,
Thanks! That sounds very probable. I just ordered it, and am looking forward to seeing it. I love Billy Wilder.

@Canonsteinway,
Cool! I'll see both. My mental image (from about 50 years ago) is more of Grace Kelly than Marlene Dietrich, but we'll see... I'll let you know.

@shunammite,
Yes, it was Dial M for Murder. The scene is at 1:12 and lasts a minute, in which there are 5 different lightings. Funny, I remembered it as black-and-white, but it's really in color. Thanks a million!
