3 things about Stanley Kramer’s JUDGEMENT AT NUREMBERG

Judgment at Nuremberg [1961]

1. One of the best closing lines in movie history: “It came to that the first time you sentenced a man to death you knew to be innocent.”
2. Clift takes out a small photograph from his jacket and shows it to the court. “Look at my mother! She was not a feeble-minded woman!” He begins to lose control of himself.
3. The English-German, German-English translation has been going back and forth for some time now. Then, a quick zoom into Maximillian Schell’s face. He is now speaking only in English. An elegant shorthand to simplify the action.
