Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Dan Jardine
Judgment at Nuremberg, which reenacts the third of 13 infamous 1948 war-crime trials, is most powerful for its subtle and shaded characterizations of both victim and victimizer. There are no easily identifiable evil enemies: the bad guys seem an awful lot like you or me, which is one of the film's central points about the rise of the Nazis. Riveting performances distinguish the movie, especially Montgomery Clift, Judy Garland, and Burt Lancaster in the showiest parts (which they make the most of). Spencer Tracy anchors the proceedings with a reliably level-headed performance. The script, which presents complex moral and philosophical issues quite well, is not quite as cutting, bitter, or angst-ridden as the subject demands. The subject matter guarantees some intensely emotional moments; however, the script occasionally fails to use them to challenge viewers to look more closely at their own self-satisfaction. Instead, we get some rather windy speechifying. Visually, the film is somewhat static (as courtroom dramas often are), though the dramatic power of the historical subject often makes it easy to overlook this flaw. Nominated for 11 Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director for Stanley Kramer, and acting nominations for Tracy, Garland, and Montgomery Clift, the film won for Abby Mann, who adapted the screenplay from the stage play, and Maximilian Schell, who plays the Nazi criminals' defense lawyer.

    A Very Emotional Drama

    After the Nazi leaders were tried for war crimes, the lesser officials who followed Hitler and his laws found themselves facing the music. In this case, judges who had passed sentences on Jews and others for nothing more than being different found themselves judged. The cast headed by Spencer Tracy as a judge for the United States and Burt Lancaster as a former Nazi judge were beyond their usual high quality. Among those testifying against Lancaster are Judy Garland, Montgomery Cliff, and Marlene Dietrich. The film was taken from cases tried in Nuremberg and is very emotional and dramatic.

    MUST SEE MOVIE

    A great movie that is always timeless. A cast that would be hard to duplicate at today's costs. I have see this movie many times over the last 20 years and each time it seems more important. The last line still rings in my ears. If you only buy one DVD this year it should be this one.

    Star-studded trial dramatization of the birth of international jurisprudence.

    While recently on a cruise up the Danube to Nuremberg, the vessel featured "Judgment at Nuremberg" all-day on its movie network. I watched it twice. When I arrived in Nuremberg, I was compelled to visit Courtroom 600 at the Palace of Justice as well as the Documentation Center at the Reich Rally Grounds. Such a star-studded cast could not affordably be assembled today. The dialogue was superb and the individual performances outstanding. Maximilian Schell's presentation of the German perspective was intriguing and provocative forcing one to consider arguments from the defense as well as the prosecution in a presumably one-sided trial. Burt Lancaster's portrayal of the remorseful judge juxtaposed against either the ambivalent or strident fellow defendants was compelling. The film is a classic by any definition and should be a fixture in any cinematic library.

    Compelling and fabulous

    Despite its age, this movie is fantastic. I wasn't born until after the waqr, but this movie made Hitler's Nazi Germany and the average people who lived there very real. The films of the death camps brought me to tears. This is a must for EVERYONE. We must never forget.
