This gripping, provocative and powerful film sheds a controversial light on the darkest era in modern history.
Nominated for eleven Oscars® including Best Picture, Judgment at Nuremberg contains searing performances by an all-star cast that includes Burt Lancaster, Marlene Dietrich and Judy Garland. American judge Daniel Haywood (Spencer Tracy) presides over the trial of four German jurists accused of ‘legalising’ Nazi atrocities. As graphic accounts of sterilisation and murder unfold in the courtroom, mounting political pressure for leniency forces Haywood into making the most harrowing and difficult decision of his career.
