See this film: Judgment At Nuremberg @ the Coolidge

For a long time Hollywood shied away from confronting the Holocaust. Stanley Kramer was one of the first directors to broach the subject in his Judgment At Nuremberg (1961), an epic rendition of the postwar trial of Nazi war criminals. Its three-plus hours features harrowing testimony, intense courtroom drama, the Oscar-nominated black-and-white cinematography of Ernest Laszlo, and a stellar, if sometimes unlikely cast, including the reassuring Spencer Tracy as a judge, Marlene Dietrich, Judy Garland, and Montgomery Clift as victims, a perky William Shatner as a US army adjutant, and Burt Lancaster and the Oscar-winning Maximilian Schell as defendants. It screens at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | Monday, October 17 @ 7 pm | $9; $6 students, seniors | 617.734.2500 or
