After the end of World War II, the world gradually became aware of the full extent of the war crimes perpetrated
by the Third Reich. In 1948, an American judge presides over the trial of four German jurists accused
of “legalizing” Nazi atrocities. As graphic accounts of their actions unfold, mounting political pressure
for leniency forces the judge to make the most harrowing and difficult decision of his career. The film
was nominated for eleven Academy Awards®, and boasts brilliant performances by a cast that includes
Spencer Tracy, Burt Lancaster, Marlene Dietrich, and Judy Garland. (35mm presentation)
This screening is part of the President's Choice Film Series: The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.
