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.
