Only last month I watched, one more time, Stanley Kramer's 'Judgement at Nuremberg', 1961
This year, as we observe 100th anniversary of the start of the World War I, the film now adds even more poignancy.
There are many moments I love from the film. One of them takes place towards the end.
"Hans Rolfe (played by Schell): I'll make you a wager...
Judge Dan Haywood (played by Spencer Tracy): I don't make wagers.
Hans Rolfe: [chuckles] A gentleman's wager... in five years, the men you sentenced to life imprisonment will be free.
Judge Dan Haywood: Herr Rolfe, I have admired your work in the court for many months. You are particularly brilliant in your use of logic...
[Rolfe nods with an appreciative smile]
Judge Dan Haywood: -so, what you suggest may very well happen. It is logical, in view of the times in which we live. But to be logical is not to be right, and nothing on God's earth could ever make it right!"
