JUDGMENT AT NUREMBERG
1961, Park Circus/MGM, 186 min, USA, Dir: Stanley Kramer

One of Hollywood’s earliest attempts to come to grips with the horror of the Holocaust, this eloquent courtroom drama lined up a host of stars - including Spencer Tracy, Burt Lancaster, Richard Widmark, Marlene Dietrich, Judy Garland, Maximilian Schell and Montgomery Clift - to re-enact the war-crimes tribunals held in Germany after World War II. Nominated for 11 Academy Awards, with wins for Best Actor (Schell) and Adapted Screenplay (Abby Mann).
