The Man in the Glass Booth

One of the unhappy 'American Film Theater' attempts to embalm theatrical performances. This version of Robert Shaw's play (from whose credits he requested his name be removed) works up a certain weight in its exploration of themes of guilt and forgiveness as a wealthy New York Jew is placed on trial, accused of being a former Nazi concentration camp commandant. But it still emerges as stagily verbose, with a self-indulgent performance from Schell.
