2. Fear and nationalism/pride...tRump's playbook (via Putin).

No excuses for murder....Burt's character got life in jail too.

"All four defendants are found guilty and sentenced to life in prison.
Haywood (Tracy) visits Janning (Lancaster) in his cell. Janning affirms to Haywood that, "By all that is right in this world, your verdict was a just one," but asks him to believe that, regarding the mass murder of innocents, "I never knew that it would come to that." Judge Haywood replies, "Herr Janning, it came to that the first time you sentenced a man to death you knew to be innocent." Haywood departs; a title card informs the audience that, of 99 defendants sentenced to prison terms in Nuremberg trials that took place in the American Zone, none was still serving a sentence when the film was released in 1961."

4. Great movie. Love the actor who plays

the military aide. To think Spencer Tracy was the first person in film history to call him Captain.
