Judgement At Nuremberg (1961)

After the end of World War II a series of trials were held in Nuremberg, Germany. Judgment at Nuremberg is a dramatized version of the proceedings at one of these trials, in which Judge Dan Haywood (Spencer Tracy) is overseeing the trials of four German judges — most notably Dr. Ernst Janning (Burt Lancaster) and Emil Hahn (Werner Klemperer) — accused of knowingly sentencing innocent men to death in collusion with the Nazis. Originally written and produced as a play for television, the screen version of Judgment at Nuremberg was nominated for 11 Academy Awards. This is a fantastic film. I try to watch it every couple of year and remind myself of not only history but some truly great performances. There are some interesting reel footage and considering that most of the film takes place in a courtroom, this is a compelling film.
