Witness for the Prosecution is a legal film produced in the 20th century. For its analysis, many legal commentators have explored issues such as “the system of tainted witness” from an internal perspective. However, this perspective ignores the understanding of legal phenomena in other fields, thereby leading to numerous doubts. By means of logical analysis, this paper uses the theory of “alienation effect” in drama to explore the reason for the protagonist’s victory: the application of the “alienation mode”. Thus, this paper clarifies the application conditions of this strategy to help lawyers play an effective role in actual trials.
