The screenplay, by Abby Mann, must be given A for effort. It concentrates on the moral-historical question of the responsibility of the German people for the Nazi horrors... Without Mr. Mann's script, it would have been just another courtroom drama. Full Review

Rating: B+ -- Important fictionalized intense courtroom drama, which at times was engrossing. Full Review

Watchable enough on its own terms, but insufferably glib next to something like Shoah. Full Review

Rating: B -- A tpical Stanley Kramer's film: Serious (even pompous) and humanist, but essentially middlebrow, courtroom drama that while well-acted is too verbose and fearful of taking sides in the controversy over who's to blame for the Nazi atrocities. Full Review

There are no surprises in the direction, and Abby Mann's screenplay plays the expected tunes, but there's enough conviction on display to reward a patient spectator. Full Review

Production Notes:

  • Maximilian Schell, the Swiss/Austrian actor, director, and writer, was born December 8, 1930 in Vienna, Austria, the son of poet and playwright Ferdinand Hermann Schell and actress Margarethe Noe. His older sister is the actress Maria Schell (born in 1926). He was educated at the University of Zurich (majoring in art history) and the University of Munich.
    Schell's first major motion picture in English was "The Young Lions" (1958), opposite Marlon Brando and Montgomery Clift. He was nominated again for the Best Actor Academy Award for his role in the film version of Robert Shaw's play "The Man in the Glass Booth" (1974), and a film he directed, "The Pedestrian" was nominated for Best Foreign Film the same year.
    His role in the film "Julia" (1977) won him a Best Supporting Actor nomination, and his documentary on Marlene Dietrich "Marlene," that he produced in 1984, won worldwide critical acclaim.
