Schindler's List before Schindler's List came out.

Judgment at Nuremberg depicts the 1948 trials which saw the sentencing of surviving Nazi top brass by the Allies. Stanley Kramer was treated to having a cast most directors would have committed murder to have, for good reason. What a cast. We got Spencer Tracy, Burt Lancaster, Marlene Dietrich, Montgomery Clift, Judy Garland, Maximilian Schell, Richard Widmark, William Shatner, and of all people Werner Klemperer (Colonel Klink from Hogan's Heroes).

The film really is haphazard and needed some focus.

Oscar Win Best Actor Maximilian Schell 3/5- Schell is good as the defense for the Nazi war criminal, but he mostly just does a standard ...
