Nuremberg Trials screenwriter dies

by Anonymous on Mar. 29th, 2008

Speaking of movies related to the Deadly Medicine exhibit, Abby Mann, who won an Oscar for writing the screenplay for the 1961 movie, JUDGEMENT AT NUREMBERG, passed away last week. Mann originally scripted a TV drama about the trials, then went on to write his first film screenplay on the same subject.

"A lot of people didn't want it done," he once said in an interview. "People wanted to sweep the issue under the rug."

Mann's screenplay won the Academy Award in 1962.
