"'Nuremberg' follows the first war-crimes trial in history, convened in November 1945. Standing accused were 24 prominent Nazi officials including such familiar names as Hermann Goering, Rudolf Hess and Albert Speer. . . . Legendary Hollywood director John Ford's OSS film team assigned Stuart Schulberg (later a movie and television producer) and his brother Budd Schulberg (screenwriter of 'On the Waterfront') the task of finding and compiling hours of footage of Nazi atrocities to show during the courtroom drama. . . . Cameramen also shot 25 hours of the trial. Stuart later assembled 'Nuremberg' from both sources, resulting in a methodical account of the legal proceedings—including the defendants' denials and the sharp oratory of Supreme Court Justice and U.S. Prosecutor Robert H. Jackson—while incorporating sickening footage of the suffering Hitler's men created."
