As World War II was drawing to a close, the U.S., Britain, France and the Soviet Union, the major allied nations, agreed that German leaders responsible for the war and atrocities such as the Holocaust should be tried as international criminals. The trial of 25 high-ranking defendants was conducted from November of 1945 to October of 1946 at Nuremberg in Bavaria, a city that was the major shrine of Nazism. Three defendants were acquitted, three received life sentences, two received 20-year sentences, there was one ten-year sentence and the rest were sentenced to hang. Three major Nazis, Hitler, Himmler and Goebels, escaped prosecution by killing themselves in the closing days of the war. Herman Goering cheated the hangman by taking his own life in his cell and Martin Borman was never found. A number of major international laws resulted from the trial, including the well-known Geneva Convention that outlaws abuse of prisoners of war. The Trial of Major War Criminals was followed by several secondary trials of doctors, judges and others who carried out Nazi policies.


"It came to that the first time you sentenced a man you knew to be innocent."

Spencer Tracy is the chief allied judge at the war crimes trial of German judges and prosecutors, charged with crimes against humanity during the Nazi years. Strong performances by Maximilian Schell, Burt Lancaster and Richard Widmark support Tracy's usual fine work. Montgomery Clift and Judy Garland are movingly credible in small but pivotal roles. William Shatner has an undemanding role that does not suggest he will command the Star Ship Enterprise a few years later.

1961, Directed by Stanley Kramer
